Since the news that a new Buffy movie will come out sans Joss Whedon, we've gotten the sense that fans have been a little perturbed.
Fear not, because perhaps there is a light at the end of your vampire-loving tunnel!
What would you say to a Buffy The Vampire Slayer animated series?
You'd love it! We thought you might and you might just get it…with Joss Whedon in tow!
A source is revealing that the beloved cult vampire classic, which made the move to comics after the show ran it's course, could be returning to the small screen in an animated show based off of the comics. Very few details are available, but it stands to reason that the show will continue in the Buffyverse Whedon had created, thus being more appealing to fans.
As for Whedon's involvement, the source says: “Whedon’s involved, but not on an ‘in-the-studio’ kind of way. He will pop in at bench-marks and give the thumbs up to make the studio happen. Not as much involvement as any of us want, but its better than not any at all.”
We see a lot of potential in this idea. For one thing, we bet it would be easier to get the original cast to come back if all they had to do was voice-overs. Plus, we'd rather see an animated Sarah Michelle Gellar kick butt than the live one. She's getting kind of old and very pregnant!
What do U think? Will U watch an animated Buffy series?
