OUAT Frozen & Galaxy Quest Continues...

I read several geeky things today that I am really excited for and wanted to share with you all.

First, Once Upon a Time released a picture of Elsa and Kristoff from the upcoming OUAT Season four. You can even see Sven in the picture. I'm really looking forward to season four though I have a feeling they are going to make Elsa the "big bad" this season or at least half the season. I don't know how Frozen fans will take to a truer book Elsa (Snow Queen).

The other news is amazing and something I have been looking forward to for 15 years.. looks like they are going to continue the story of Galaxy Quest. Not in movie form but as a comic book series and it's going to continue where the movie left off. Here's the deets from a Blastr article written by Trent Moore.

It’s been almost 15 years since Galaxy Quest stole our hearts and minds with its pitch perfect Star Trek impression and overdubbed F-bomb — and now, the crew is back for more adventures.

Sadly, we’re not getting a sequel, but the property has been picked up by IDW to become a new comic book series dubbed Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues. Writer Erik Burnham and artist Nacno Arranz have been tasked with bringing the rag-tag characters played by Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver to life on the page.

Burnham sounds like a true fan of the material, and chatted with Comic Book Resources about the approach he’ll take to adapting the film for the comic medium. Basically, he hopes to maintain the geek-tastic wit we all love, while picking up a storyline that fits perfectly with the film’s finale:

“Well, at the end of their movie, Tim Allen's character, Jason, used the Omega 13 device to rewind time 13 seconds and undo the catastrophic death of his crew. (Um... sorry for the 15 year-old spoilers!) Messing with time. Maybe that affected more than the ship. If it was more widespread, sure, most folks would just have a powerful case of deja vu. But what if it changed something else? That's what we're starting with. They're the reason a new race -- called the Drythans -- seek them out and say, ‘You screwed something up. Fix it.’

As a joke, I played with the conceit of how many sequels reuse certain beats from their predecessor when I introduce the cast in a similar way to the way they were first introduced in the movie. That one may be too meta to see without being told, but it still makes me chuckle … Everyone from the movie will be back. I was even asked to include Brandon, the role Justin Long played, so we got everyone. There will be a new race of aliens, too.”
