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.
