In 1991 James Cameron changed the rules of science fiction thanks to Terminator 2, but he also created a sequel that has nothing to do with 2003 Terminator 3.
Long before the disappointing installments of the saga, James Cameron made a sequel to Terminator 2 in the form of a Universal Studios theme park attraction. It is no secret that the franchise has been a disaster after the director was no longer the ultimate responsible for any of the films.
The terminator (1984) is a great mix of horror and science fiction movies. Terminator 2 Today it is one of the best movies of its genre, a great mix of smart script and special effects. Then it appeared Terminator 3: The Machine Rebellion (2003), which lowered the level. Then we had to suffer Terminator: Salvation (2009) and Terminator Genesis (2015). To finish off the saga with Terminator: Hidden Fate from 2019 that tried to fix things, but it didn't do much good.
However they created another story that few fans know about.
In 1996, at Universal Studios Florida, he premiered a 3D show called Terminator 2 3D: Battle Across Time, which continued the story of the 1991 film and was also created by James Cameron.
Spectators attended a technological presentation of Cyberdyne Systems and they showed off their new invention, an early version of Terminators. Sarah and John Connor (played again by Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong) warn of the danger of the machine uprising by recounting the events of Terminator 2 and saying they thought they had avoided Doomsday.
Terminator 2 3D tells its story from then on. Sarah and John interrupt the Terminator presentation, but they soon encounter a T-1000, again played by Robert Patrick. Presumably another one sent through time to kill them. Then a time portal opens, through which the T-800 of Arnold schwarzenegger to save John and help Sarah. It is unclear how he returned but it could be assumed that the future John had managed to reprogram another T-800, and taught him the same lessons he had as a teenager, since the plot is a stable time cycle.
The T-800 takes John back through the portal into the future, in the final battle between humans and machines. The two fight through an apocalyptic landscape before heading to the headquarters of Skynet. The duo heads to Skynet's CPU room, where they encounter a T-1,000,000, essentially a giant T-1000. At the end of this Terminator 2 sequel, the T-800 again ends up sacrificing itself to save John, causing Skynet to explode. It is unclear how, if at all, if this would affect the present, where Sarah meets John and declares that the battle continues.
This story seamlessly continues the events of Terminator 2 and is a better sequel than anything that came after. Currently it can only be enjoyed at Universal Studios Japan.
