Hope for Serenity II?

serenityse.jpg With the original DVDs of Serenity flying off the shelves, it only made sense to make a special collector’s edition DVD for Serenity fans dying for more. But will the extra dose of Serenity end there?

Perhaps not. In a Comic Con interview with Serenity’s writer/director Joss Whedon, Whedon gives a little glimmer of hope for a Serenity II. After being asked if there was hope of the second movie, Whedon said it really depended on the special edition DVD sales (with honesty, but also a truly great push for DVD sales) (Legel).

When further prodded about the subject, Whedon gave a little bit more as he stated:

“Well it’s probably not being discussed in boardrooms right now, but the fact of the matter is if it makes enough money sooner or later they say “hey, this is money!” Also there are paradigms that are much cheaper, it doesn’t have to be enormous. But on the other hand I’m happy to say all of my actors are working very hard. It’s not the same situation where we all threw in for pennies because we had to finish telling that story. Now that situation might be harder to bring about” (Legel).

The DVD is expected to sell about ” eleventy kabillion” copies according to the joking Whedon, so if that comes true, my bets are that Serenity II will be here before you know it! So, Serenity fans, get out there and buy that DVD if you’re drooling for a Serenity II. You hold the power!

    I truly hope that a Serenity II will be produced. I always liked that show and it had/has great potential. Even better would be a second season…or both. Firefly is a very original work of sci fi and you don’t see that very often anymore.
