Universal is rebooting Battlestar Galactica
Written by Robert Niles
Okay, this is movie news, and not (yet, at least) specific to theme parks, but Variety reports that Universal is rebooting Battlestar Galactica with a new movie.Tweet
Universal has built Battlestar Galactica-themed attractions twice before, with an animatronic laser battle show on the tram tour at Universal Studios Hollywood, and, more recently, dueling Vekoma roller coasters at Universal Studios Singapore.
The Hollywood show ran during the 1980s and closed in 1992 to make room for the Back to the Future/Simpsons Ride building. The Singapore coasters closed last year, reportedly due to ongoing mechanical issues. But both attractions enjoyed substantial popularity during their runs.
Battlestar Galactica has proven itself an enduring franchise, spawning an acclaimed four-season reboot on the Sci Fi Channel. Could a successful Battlestar Galactica feature film help create demand for a new BSG attraction at a Universal Studios theme park? What would you like to see, and where?
