Weekend Theater: Buffy Animated

A few years ago, as Buffy The Vampire Slayer was wrapping up its seven year run, creator Joss Whedon announced that there was a Fox animated series in development that would feature the characters back in High School, and include the character of Dawn – who had magically been inserted into their timeline (if you watched the show, you understand). Scripts by regular Buffy scribes were written, virtually the entire original cast – with the notable exception of star Sarah Michelle Gellar – signed on to reprise their roles, and this demonstration film was completed.

Unfortunately, the series never came to pass. Too bad, 'cause this short film shows a lot of promise.

Buffy kinda looks like Kim Possible! One of my favorites!

I quite enjoyed the Buffy series. I thought it lost a bit in the later stories, when the "witch" powers started to get important. But it was great.


I've never got over the fact that Buffy was scrapped while Charmed went on and on.
