J. Michael Straczynski’s “Babylon 5” is alive and well, and it comes to you via a direct-to-DVD movie called “Babylon 5: The Lost Tales” on July 31, 2007. If you’re as big a fan of the TV series as I was (Every night, after coming home from a second shift job, I actually stayed awake for 2 more hours to watch the syndicated show) you’ll have already pre-ordered your copy by now. Still not convince? Here’s the DVD box art poster and some video clips from the movie (via), which you can order from Amazon here.
Times change. Dangers remain. 10 years after he became President of the Interstellar Alliance, Sheridan prepares for a fateful Babylon 5 reunion that could prevent Earth’s impending doom…if he will also compromise his core principles. Meanwhile, commander Lochley confronts an unexpected interloper on the way station – a being whose presence makes the B5 freeport the crossroads between heaven and hell. In Voices in the Dark, Series creator J. Michael Straczynski reunites with stars Bruce Boxleitner and Tracy Scoggins in two richly imagined stories set after the events of the original series. Richly imagined, too, is Straczynski’s vision of the 23rd century (including a dazzling New York City) – a vision made more spectacular via filmmaking technology unavailable during the original series.
“Babylon 5: The Lost Tales” stars Bruce Boxleitner, Tracy Scoggins, Teryl Rothery, Peter Woodward, Bruce Ramsay, and is directed by J. Michael Straczynski and Sara Barnes.
