Here’s how the film-makers tell it:
By all accounts, it was a movie that beat all odds: Surviving a set fire, the loss of a powerful director, and a studio that didn’t understand what it had, Galaxy Quest turned into a pop-culture phenomenon that would “never give up, never surrender.”
As the cult classic nears its 20th anniversary – premiering on December 25, 1999 – “Never Surrender” explores how the science-fiction comedy became an enduring fan favorite, and helped launch the sci-fi- and fantasy-driven movie and TV industry of today.
