The “Farscape” Movie Will Happen!
Now I know there is a great many of you who will here this and say, “Who scape?” but for those who watched the show as I did on the “Sci-Fi” channel, you will be thrilled. If you are a fan of “Farscape” you are a super fan. the show’s imagination , creativity, great writing and cast made it an instant classic for the Sci-fi community. It was a wildly imaginative show that never took itself too seriously. the other thing you know if you were a fan of the show is, it ended far too early.
Well much like “Stargate” who made some post series movies to allow the characters and stories to continue post series. It looks like the creators of “Farscape” will offer up at least one full length movie to it’s fans.
It seems that at last weeks WonderCon “Farscape” show creator Rockne O’Bannon said that it was indeed in the works. He said,
“Yeah, yeah, it’s the worst kept secret…We’re far from production, but yeah, the first step is Justin [Monjo] working on a script for us. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.”
It appears according to reports from February that the plot might follow along with “Farscape” comics written by Keith R.A. DeCandido and involve John and Aeryn’s now fully grown 19 year old son who has been hidden on Earth from villains who were interested in the peculiar “powers” he began to show. Now little D’Argo appears to be ready to join his parents in space.
But everything other than that it looks to be happening is speculation at this point. I know that I can’t wait and I may even have to re watch the series just to get caught up on it. While we wait though I thought why not take a look at a trailer from season 4. I have to admit after watching this trailer I am even more excited.
