Buffy the Vampire Slayer Movie
Buffy may be a hit TV series, but before that it was a, not so popular, movie and now it’s about to become another not so popular movie. Earlier this year rumours of a Buffy movie circulated, but then the project was put on hold, until now that is. It has been announced that the movie is back on the card. Not only will none of the original cast be returning, but director Joss Whedon, creator of the series, won’t be playing a part in this movie. Whedon has spoken out against the making of the film, as he doesn’t agree with it being made.
I’m a Buffy fan and a lot of Whedon’s other work, but I don’t always agree with the things he does. For example I’m completely against the Buffy Season 8 comic and refuse to recognise it as canon, because I don’t think the story would have gone that way had it been a show. However I stand by him when it comes to another Buffy movie. I love how Buffy ended, don’t get me started on the last episode of Angel (or the last season of Angel for that matter), and I do not think that there needs to be any additions to the series comic, movie or even another TV show.
Thankfully the movie does not intend to continue the original story. It is simply a reboot. The movie is intended to be darker than the show, which I’m going to assume means they can’t afford to pay for lighting, because they can’t be talking about the tone as the show is by no stretch of the imagination light hearted.
Regardless to how I, or anyone else, feel about the movie, it’s on its way. So the question is who will play Buffy? And will the other characters from the show appear in the film? After all Willow, Xander, Giles, etc were not in the original movie.
I will never agree with this movie, but I will wait until a trailer is released before I say whether or not it looks like it will be entertaining. Leave a comment and vote below.
