Vancouver Start for "Stargate" Movies

"Stargate: Continuum" and "Stargate: The Ark of Truth" are 2 spin-off movies based on the recently cancelled "Stargate" TV series.

"Stargate: The Ark of Truth" starts filming April 17 in Vancouver.

The story follows 'SG-1' as they search for an ancient weapon that could help them defeat the 'Ori'. Then they discover the device may be in the Ori's own home galaxy.

As the Ori prepare to send ships through to the Milky Way to attack Earth, SG-1 travels to the Ori galaxy aboard the 'Odyssey'.

But the 'International Oversight' committee has their own plans and SG-1 finds themselves in a distant galaxy fighting two powerful enemies.

In June, Vancouver will also host the filming of "Stargate: Continuum".

This story follows 'SG-1' as they attend the execution of 'Ba'al', the last of the 'goa'uld' system lords, when 'Teal'c' and 'Vala' suddenly disappear into thin air.

'Carter', 'Daniel' and 'Mitchell' race back to a world where history has been changed and the 'Stargate' program erased from the timeline.

As they try to convince the authorities what's happened, a fleet of goa'uld motherships arrives in orbit, led by Ba'al, his queen, 'Katesh', and his first prime, Teal'c.

SG-1 must find the Stargate before the world is enslaved by the goa'uld.
