    Alright guys and girls. I just got a piece of information that Australian veiwers have been waiting for, but sadly I'm too scared to go into the other thread given the spoiler in there (Thankfully I didn't see it).

    So I made this thread here for those of us who want to wait for the DVD and don't want to be spoilt. We can talk about what we hope to see/don't hope to see in the coming months before the DVD is released.

    Now all you Australian viewers out there.. Here it is. EzyDVD.com.au have now opened The Ark of Truth for pre-order. The DVD will be hitting Australian shores on Wednesday the 9th of April, for the low price of $29.83 (Plus P&D).

    The link for pre-order through EzyDVD is: http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/797962

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Telkiar.

    I too am now staying away from the threads with "The Ark of Truth" in their titles.

    Wednesday, 9th April, is now marked on my Calendar/Diary!

    "Hollowed are the Ori"

    Hopefully, that's the way it will be - I want Adria to live but the worshippers to perish! I should be getting my copy in March.

    I did mean Hollowed - the ori presence and power have been hollowed. At least that's what I'm hoping for...Adria alone will live on but she will be weakened because all the worshippers will be gone and there will only be hollow praise for her.

    It was supposed to be a pun, but I guess I have to work on my humor!

    Don't worry,humour,and things like sarcasm,don't ever come across on screen as well as they do in person.

    So what's the reason that the ascended Ancients and the Ori didn't duke it out after all this time? Is it 'cause it would've been a virtual tie, or it's just "not their way" for the Ancients to try to eliminate the ori?

    I think it was the whole "You play with your toys, I play with mine"

    As long as the Ori themselves didn't play with the Ancients toys they were content to let hem be.

    Granted the Ori cheated and snuck Adria over the border, but that was still in the "live and let live" philosophy of the ancients.
    I'm hoping we see at least a little Ori Vs Ancient though.

    k, i can see that. But now, after the Ancients know the Ori are after them and their galaxy, how come they still don't do anything? i guess i'm just repeating what Daniel was asking Morgan La Fey.

    They are still waiting. Until the Ori make the first assult they won't do a thing. Bunch of high and mighty bastards.

    Answer: "it's complicated"

    translation: don't know why. Or more that I don't know why. Maybe because the Ancients don't mind it if we do the dirty work for them, as Mitchell said.

    if Adria lives after this, how 'bout this scenario:

    Adria releases Anubis from Oma's grasp, and the ori-girl and half-ascended bad guy escapes either to the ori galaxy or a new galaxy to re-create everything. Adria rules the skies above, and Anubis (with part material form) rules the land.

    If Adria is Ori, she will not want to share power with Anubis. And Oma will not let Anubis get away. And if Adria tries to interfere with Oma and Anubis's fight, the others will most likely interfere. That is afterall something on the ascended plane, and they do seem to want to control that.

    It'd be great to see Anubis again, but he too wants power, and will not rest with just ruling the land. Remember, he was after getting himself ascended again.

    Does anyone know how much time is supposed to pass between Unending and the start of this movie?

    Edit: I'm assuming they'll just start somewhere around Unending or give a hint right at the beginning, but I'm just wondering. I also wonder if there will be enough time to incorporate some of the Asgard technology for the upcoming battles.

    I believe,in some places,they are called trolls.

    Boring little creatures they are.
