Just heard the news from io9, A full feature movie reboot of Babylon 5 is on the way!io9.com/babylon-5-could-soon-b…
I think this is awesome news, I loved the TV series when I watched it and despite the... less successful tie-in series and TV movies, it's still one of my all-time favourite Sci-Fi shows. It had a great balance between politics and sci-fi action/drama, it wasn't a dog fighting action adventure show like Battlestar Galactica, but it actually made politics fun, you got to see how a few peoples choices and actions could affect the whole galaxy, usually making things worse.
I've been wary about reboots recently, especially the recent news about the new Stargate movies, but I'm still excited about this, mainly because it's JMS himself that's at the helm, he made the series and I reckon I trust him to make a good movie.
When I first heard it I was a bit worried about the format, I mean Babylon 5's greatest strength was that in a TV series you had something like 20-24 hours per season to tell a really in-depth story, and allow plots to develop over time, but even a full feature film can only be 2-3 hours tops.
Still it's JMS and he's been working towards this since the end of B5 itself, I reckon it'll be worth it.
