Galaxy Quest was by far one of the funniest movies of 1999. It's parody of the science fiction fandom was hysterically accurate. From the comic book conventions to the cult like following that certain sci-fi actor have. Galaxy Quest was an obvious jab at Star Trek and the sci-fi universe in general.

Galaxy Quest also had one of the funniest and most talented cast ever assembled. Tim Allen , Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell had some of the best chemistry ever seen on the big screen.

We were fortunate to catch up with Tony Shalhoub at the Red Carpet World Premiere of the Incredibles at the El Capitan Theater. We asked Tony if there has been any word on a possible sequel to Galaxy Quest. To our surprise he said that there has been some recent talks about Galaxy Quest 2 and that he would do the sequel in a heartbeat.

We don't know how serious these talks are and in what stages they might be in. The first Galaxy Quest had a budget of $45 million and had a total take in of $72 million, not including it's DVD sales. It might be a risk worthy taking as long as the entire cast comes back with the exception of Daryl Mitchell who played Tommy Webber/Lt. Laredo, who had a near fatal motorcycle accident on November 2001 and is now paralyzed.

October 31, 2002 - (Reported by debbie_l_g) In the October 31, 2002  headlines of the Dark horizon's site they reported: 

Galaxy Quest 2: Tim Allen apparently hinted on Howard Stern that he was interested in possibly doing a sequel.

From what I've been able to find out about the interview, while he's eager to do more, Allen made it clear that he won't settle for anything but the best for the next  installment of Galaxy Quest.  According to Allen the problem is coming up with a worthy script:

"The original was so clever and well done that it's difficult to come up with a sequel that's just as good."

Way to go Tim!

September 17, 2002 - right up front: Please remember that these are currently just rumors,  If we ever get confirmation of a sequel, believe me, it'll be plastered all over the site in big flashing letter :)   

After a long absence, I was checking out the Official Justin Long and found some interesting sequel news.... 

Last May  In a responded to the question of a sequel rumor, Justin said:

... yeah, I've been hearing that "Galaxy Quest 2" rumor myself - i think it's probably lost somewhere in development hell. last summer i was at some DreamWorks party and one of the executives told me it was happening. who knows. it'd be hard to get that cast back together again at the same time - it'd be fun though...

 

Finally! some confirmation to the rumors that DreamWorks was considering a sequel where true!!!   While hardly proof that we're going to see a sequel,  I does mean I'm going to be watching the net much more closely!  

More recently, the following two message where posted in the GQ discussion area of Justin Long's Site

I keep hearing this and I think I got a definite answer this past week while I was in New York. I went to see PRIVATE LIVES that stars Alan Rickman. The Stage Door buzz was that they are getting ready to film the sequel and it's one of the next films that he's doing. I haven't heard about Justin's possible involvement in it, but it looks like the sequel is definitely going to happen.
