Tuesday, 11 December 2001 : "new B5 movie"I hadn't heard anything about this before today, but maybe I'm just out of the loop: a new B5 movie is premiering January 19, 2002:
Babylon 5: The Legend of the Rangers [scifi.com]
...is an all-new two-hour telefilm from the original creative team... The movie tells the story of the legendary Ranger fleet as it attempts to restore order to hundreds of civilizations devastated by the Shadow War.The only returning character seems to be Citizen G'Kar; everyone else is new.
Interview with Andreas Katsulas, Part 1 | Part 2
Personally, I think if it had been the old cast reassembled, we would have been 90 percent partying and just enjoying the fact that we were together, and about 10 percent working. Whereas this was a new cast that still had to prove themselves and find their characters, and really work hard on this to make it work. So I really appreciated that I was coming into an atmosphere of a work in progress, and had to join them in all seriousness in the Rangers' world, and not just sort of party with Jerry Doyle and Peter Jurasik. Not that I wouldn't have been equally happy to see the old buddies and see it all start up again that way. But this was more of a work situation, and a very good one.They also have Christopher Franke back doing the music, and the effects look somewhat improved. Should be fun.
