Galaxy Quest is one of those amazing movies that deserves a lot more credit then it gets. It was a fantastic sci-fi comedy that people tend to forget, but now it's about to make a comeback! Amazon has announced that it's bringing back the hilarious Star Trek-style space exploration show to their streaming service with a brand new show.
Galaxy Quest followed the story of a group of actors who had been the stars of a television show that was kind of like Star Trek. They traveled through space on a large ship, interacting with aliens and going on adventures. They were doing Comic Con-style conventions, and the lead actor, who was played by Tim Allen, ends up getting brought into a real alien situation.
The entire cast ends up getting dragged into this crazy excursion that feels like an episode from their show. They travel in a space ship, they fight aliens, and they manage to help keep the galaxy secure from an attack.
It has been 18 years since the movie the came out, but Amazon is ready to give it another go by turning it into a TV series. The series was announced back in 2015, but now the people responsible for the upcoming series have finally let us know what to expect, and how it will connect to the original movie...
