If you can explode the gif into frames, KDEnlive's slide show feature can put 
them together into any movie you want.  

I would try Image Magick's gif2anim script to explode the gif.

If that does not work, try gifsicle

apt-cache show gifsicle
Package: gifsicle
Version: 1.67-1

Description-en: Tool for manipulating GIF images
 This is a tool for manipulating GIF image files. It has good
 support for transparency and colormap manipulation, simple image
 transformations (cropping, flipping), and creating, deconstructing,
 and editing GIF animations, which it can also optimize for space.

Kdenlive is the KDE movie editor.  It's slide show generates slide shows from 
numbered files in a directory.  The time between "slides" can be anything you 
want, such as 0.033 seconds or 30 frames per second.  Once you have the 
slideshow as you like it, you can add sound, effects or titles then export 
the finished movie to a wide variety of formats.  

Sadly, you can't be sure that other people with non free software will be able 
to watch your movie.  Apple OSX, for example, was unable to play any of the 
movies my daughter exported for a class project,

YouTube is more flexible with input and Chromium browser will work with both 
Theora and Webm in html5 video tags.  Tablet and phones are more problematic.   
Best of luck.
