An alien similar to Ra appears out of the Stargate, killing five soldiers and kidnapping another, a year after the original Stargate mission. A new team is assembled, including some old members, and they go in search of the missing soldier in order to find out how Ra could still be alive. Meanwhile, the alien Gou'ald kidnap Sha're and Skaara, implanting them with symbiotes and making them Gou'ald hosts.

The actors playing the Abydonians, both here and in the movie, (especially _Alexis Cruz (I)' as Skaara) sound like they are swallowing their "L"s; making O'Neill sound like "Oneer" for example. In ancient Egyptian there is no hieroglyph for an "l" sound. Later the Greeks would use the lion hieroglyph to represent the "l" but it actually represented the "rw" consonant sound. Whether the actors were doing this on purpose or not is an interesting question. See more

In 2009 MGM released a re-edited version of Children of the Gods on DVD. Certain scenes have been trimmed slightly to make the pace of the film flow faster and one new scene has been added. Scenes with violence have been toned down and the infamous full frontal nudity shots of actress Vaitiare Bandera have been removed. Also,the visual effects have been enhanced and composer Joel Goldsmith has re-scored the entire film with new music instead of the re-used David Arnold score from the 1994 feature. The 2009 version runs approx 7 minutes shorter than the original. See more
