Catherine Mary Stewart teased this past summer that a sequel might finally be getting greenlighted. I have no idea what the news is since I don't want to slog through three months and several hundred of her Facebook posts to find it. I'm not sure I'd be all that enthusiastic about it, either. Sequels are more often than not bad news, inferior to the original movies that spawned them. I'm not sure it would stand out that much, either. Back then, CGI was groundbreaking. Today, a new Starfighter movie would be just another in a sea of sci-fi space battle movies, nothing special about it. Besides, the cast has aged so much in 34 years. Robert Preston has long since departed, and while Centauri could be easily recast since he was an alien wearing a human mask, I can't think of a current actor who could pull off that con man role. Lance Guest has shed most of the luxurious locks he once sported. A little hair gel and he would pass for a native Rylan. I dread that this could be analogous to how Tron: Legacy was made decades after the original and paled in comparison despite far superior graphics and the older film's script having a great many flaws.
