Stargate SG-1 massively retconned the movie to make it fit a series.

yeah the movie was basically ... the stargate went to one planet in a distant galaxy(!), that was it. The alien had been just sorta chilling out there for several thousand years for no particular raisin.

The TV show was a massive improvement even if visually it didn't have the money to out-cinematic the movie

It never would have made any sense to have all of those symbols on the gate if it was only going to one place.

well if it was a combination lock maybe. Maybe it was originally set up to obliterate people if they got it wrong?
