Twenty years on, Galaxy Quest still holds up as one of the most original and funny ensemble comedies of all time. Written by David Howard and directed by Dean Parisot it boasted a cast that was the who’s who of comedic talent, from Alan Rickman, to Sigourney Weaver.
Fans desperately craving a sequel learnt from an interview with Chris Hardwick that Amazon was working on a sequel that would have brought the cast back together, however scheduling conflicts and the death of Alan Rickman have caused it to be closed down. Hardwick commented:
“They were going to do a sequel on Amazon and we were ready to sign up for, and you know, Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn’t available, he has a show, and everybody’s show was all weird. We were going to this sequel on Amazon. It was going to shoot like, right now.”
