1988 brought a third (fictional) entry: ''Roots: The Gift.'' This was a single two-hour side story, bringing back [=LeVar=] Burton as Kunta Kinte. As a piece of trivia, this film features a few actors who would be in ''Star Trek'' productions, just as [=LeVar=] Burton was. Avery Brooks ([[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Captain Benjamin Sisko]]), Kate Mulgrew ([[Series/StarTrekVoyager Captain Kathryn Janeway]]), and Tim Russ ([[Series/StarTrekVoyager Lieutenant Tuvok]]).

[=LeVar=] Burton helped produce a remake of the first series in 2016 that apparently had new facts that had come up about Kunta Kinte's life since the first one was made (they included his growing up in a city rather than a village and that he knew several languages, including a smattering of English).

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Though the series is (rightly) praised for its unflinching depiction of the brutality of the Atlantic slave trade, its depiction of White "slave catchers" is [[RuleOfDrama a bit historically inaccurate]]. In RealLife, though the slave trade itself was facilitated by European and American traders, slavery was well-institutionalized in West African states, which were often as well-developed as their European counterparts. Most African slaves were already enslaved by other Africans, when they were sold to Europeans, most often by having been taken as captives in warfare, and sold them for profit in legal trade--not by white slavers who traveled into the interior of Africa to quietly ambush slaves one by one (indeed, Europeans who sought to forcibly and illegally capture slaves were typically dealt with mercilessly by forces of the African states well into 18th century. Not to mention there were many tropical diseases whites suffered from that made it dangerous). This involvement of Africans in others' enslavement is mentioned in the series but not directly shown (the remake corrects it, showing that slaves were sold by other Africans).
