COMIC-CON 2012: Firefly 10 Year Anniversary!!

Great news for anyone going to Comic-Con this year (unfortunately, not me)! Most of the cast of Firefly including Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin and the rest of the gang, plus writer Tim Minear and creator/best GoRRam director Joss Whedon will be appearing at a panel hosted by the Science Channel on Friday, July 13th in Ballroom 20!

Below is the press release:

Friday 7/13/12, 12:30 p.m.–1:30 p.m., Room: 20

It has been 10 years since the crew of Serenity took flight in Joss Whedon’s short-lived but now revered series, FIREFLY. SCIENCE will reconvene, for the first time in a decade, Captain Mal Reynolds and the crew from the ship, calling all Browncoats to unite at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. The cast of FIREFLY will talk about the past, present and future of FIREFLY, 10 years after its debut. 

The series is part of the Comic-Con slate from first-time attendee Science Channel, which began airing repeats of the Fox space Western last year, continuing to draw an audience of loyal Browncoats and attracting new fans during its run. Science also will make available special collectible bags (see photo) featuring Firefly and the rest of its Comic-Con lineup.

In addition to the panel discussion, the hourlong session will also feature never-before-seen footage along with what Science is billing as "numerous buzz-worthy surprises."

Wow this looks like an exciting opportunity for all you Browncoats headed to San Diego in a few weeks as unless something new is in the works (Serenity 2 perhaps?), the cast probably won’t be uniting like this again for a long time. With all the success that Joss Whedon has had with The Avengers, I’d say its definitely possible he now has the influence and money to pull together a sequel for the fans that have been supporting him all these years. Come on Joss, return to the ‘verse! He has shown interest in a sequel, saying,

“You know, I love all my raggedy children, but if I could be anywhere, I’d be on board Serenity.”

Below are the Trailers for Both The show and the film.

Templar Note: Make it happen, we want another movie! Or even better, somehow convince HBO to buy the rights to Firefly from FOX and continue the series! but unfortunately that highly seems doubtful due to most of the cast have moved on to other projects....but maybe a sequel to "Serenity" might be possible especially after Joss Whedon's success with "The Avengers".
