Babylon 5: The Road Home

Finally, following years of speculation regarding a Babylon 5 reboot, series creator and showrunner J. Michael Straczynski has announced an animated movie!

Read the official synopsis for Babylon 5: The Road Home:

"Return to BABYLON 5 as the epic interstellar saga continues with THE ROAD HOME. Travel across the galaxy with John Sheridan as he unexpectedly finds himself transported through multiple timelines and alternate realities in a quest to find his way back home. Along the way he reunites with some familiar faces, while discovering cosmic new revelations about the history, purpose, and meaning of the Universe."

Warner Bros. Animation has a storied history featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the award-winning Batman: The Animated Series!

Returning Babylon 5 cast members include Bruce Boxleitner as John Sheridan, Claudia Christian as Susan Ivanova, Peter Jurasik as Londo Mollari, Bill Mumy as Lennier, Tracy Scoggins as Elizabeth Lochley and Patricia Tallman as Lyta Alexander.

The surviving cast members are joined by Paul Guyet as Zathras and Jeffery Sinclair, Anthony Hansen as Michael Garibaldi, Mara Junot as Reporter and Computer Voice, Phil LaMarr as Dr Stephen Franklin, Piotr Michael as David Sheridan, Andrew Morgado as G’Kar and Rebecca Riedy as Delenn.

Longtime readers know I'm a big fan of Babylon 5 and remain hopeful for a live-action series on Max (formerly HBO Max) in the wake of the success of Star Trek and Star Wars spin-off series on Paramount+ and Disney+ respectively. The current writers' strike and shakedown following the Warner Bros. Discovery merger means there won't be a series anytime soon.

Babylon 5: The Road Home (affiliate link) is released digitally, 4K UHD and Blu-ray on 15th August.
