    I really don't like to sound like a sour sport but I do not want at Buffy movie without Kristy Swanson to exist.

    • Sean D. Martin says:

      As Buffy, or in some other role as a "tip of the hat" kind of cameo?

        Kristy Swanson Sucked Balls Sarah was way better i mean come on do you think the TV series would've done any better if Kristy played Buffy and not Sarah i don't think so sarah pretty much carried the series

    I've got to be one of the biggest Buffy fans there are and Sarah Michelle Gellar does an amazing job. I would love to see a movie come out to continue the Buffy craze. I'll be patiently waiting =]

    i would definatly love to see all the cast of buffy get together for a big movie with demons and whatever joss weadon has got up his sleeve.

    A Buffy movie just makes sense. Everyone wants to know what Buffy does after her "retirement" from being a slayer. The comics are a little too weird for me. Dawn being giant? That's a bit ridiculous. The movie should ignore the comic.

    • mike weber says:

      And Dawn being carried off to be a demon's bride wasn't?Or the fact that Dawn was officially a retcon in the Buffyverse?

    I say go for it Whedon! And while you're at it, why don't you bring Anya back? You've done such dead rising before!

    The comics are what Joss intended to do with the series. So if the T.V show went on with a season 8, the comics are EXACTLY what would have happened. I am glad they didn't continue on with what they are doing in season 8. I do not like the lesbian thing, I feel it is way out of character for Buffy… and I would LOVE a Buffy movie, but without SMG it would be pointless. And I would hate for the movie to be awful. It would ruin the little popularity Buffy has left.Yeesh I love Buffy,

    I am 39 years old. Buffy is not just a young persons show. I loved this show and I miss it being on. The characters were a brilliant creation. I actually know a girl at work, who loves it too, and she is 48! I can't wait for the movie and the following spin-off! HINT, HINT. ;)

    A MOVIE IS A BRILLIANT IDEA. The Series was just so good, and one episode can just fill you with so many unprecedented emotions through the stories they tell. i loved each and every character and i dont think i was the only one who cried when spike died. Anya and Spike were a big loss and the movie wouldnt be the same if there was one character that wasnt in it. I love the series, obsessively ( but in a good way) i hope. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. buffy movie (Y)(:

    I would love to see a Buffy movie. SMG is one of my fav actress' and Buffy one of my fav shows. I would go see it. A movie is a great idea. And I was reading somewhere that SMG was worried about not getting as many movies/shows as she gets older. Buffy would be great. A movie then start the show up again.

    I hope a Movie comes out! I would go and have tons of friends that would go with me!! I'm the biggest Buffy fan… Still today I'll watch the episodes over and over.. You can't help but to get sucked into the Buffy universe. Any movie you put out would hit number one In the Box office .. Cause if their is one thing I know, Its Buffy fans… We would go see it Again and again and again… I'll keep my fingers crossed… :)

    Okay, lets get serious Joss Whedon. CREATE THE MOVIE! Theres millions of Buffy fans out there! I read somewhere Gellar didnt want to do it. CONVINCE HER! This will hit #1 in the box office for sure! We can really tie up some loose ends. Although, I Dont think it should follow the comic book. I think it should start with a recap of the season finally and then move forward. I vote BUFFY Movie right now in the making! No exceptions, No Buts, it shall be done! Where the hell is a witch when you need one? Any1 know willow's digitz?

    The movie should and has to be for the millions of existing fans, you can't have the movie stripped down so that everything is explained to people new to the series else the movie would too bogged down in two many explanations or wouldn't have its prior history.

  13. Lauren says:

    I would LOVE if they made a buffy movie,with sarah michelle gellar as buffy. that would be amazing. all the buffy fans miss watching it. I think they shouldn't follow the comics though,they should start the movie with what happened after the last episode ever of buffy.. but,i also thought,you know how at the end of the last episode of angel,spike and angel were fighting all those demons to save the world? -well, in the buffy movie they could show buffy and the gang turning up to join in with the fight. (halfway through the fight) get what i mean?…i think that would be awesome!. oh well,if there is going to be a movie,i'm sure joss whedon will sort something out,and make it brilliant. I just hope they do make a movie. it would so freakin great.it would make us,buffy fans extremely happy. =D

    Why is this so hard? BTVS was great and there are millions of fans, a movie or another series should be a no-brainer after all the cast has said they would be willing to do it. Jesus, do we need to give our credit card numbers and pay in advance? Well, I would do it, and so would many BTVS fanatics. Give us a way to help this happen and we, the fans, will do whatever it takes. Be creative Jos, the fans will support you whatever you.

  16. freja. says:

    yes! PLEASE, Joss, throw us a bone!A BTVS movie would blow Batman, Superman, whatever out of the water!!Xander needs a happy ending, right?

  17. Kayleigh says:

    HELL YEAH! i think there should be a Buffy movie. i loved the show i still watch it everyday now. i would love to see a movie after the ending of the series. i felt like there wasnt enough closure as we dont know what happened after sunnydale went down. please make a movie. give all us fans the closure we need. bring back all the characters we know and love. i'm sure this Buffy movie would be 1000% better than the original one! do it Joss DO IT!

    i'm sure we would! we all want it to happen! but how do we all get it to happen!?!?! come on Joss u know we all want it!

    SMG is the only Buffy i would want to see! she may not of been the first Buffy! But she was heaps better than the first(Kristy). U can't have a Buffy movie without SMG and i'm sure she would do it for all of us millions of fans around the world that want to see her back! SMG FOREVER!

  21. maria says:

    i think they should do a preview of all the seasons and then go into a 2 hour movie and introduce new monsters and life after season 8 . it would be so cool just to see james marsters and david boreanaz in the film as well with maybe the ghost of anya and to see wether xander still misses her. and andrew becoming a watcher finally.
    please joss do it for all the buffy and angel fans out there who think she has made a good role model.

    i'm a big buffy fan also hanging out to see a spinoff movie of some sort, with the original actors from the series of cause!! It would be so great!! I have the box set of Angel and buffy and still watch them over and over! I hope one day soon Joss might release a buffy movie or that one of spike they have talked about!

  23. Anonymous says:

    i strongly agree that there should be another movie, my number 1 reason is that there are so many unanswered questions. well at least i know i have millions of questions that are unanswered! i think a movie would do great, and i would definitly go see it. i think it would be awsome to see all the characters again, and see how there doing, and i think buffy needs to know that spikes alive!

  24. helen says:

    God I hope they will do a movie everyone has been waiting with baited breath for years maybe we could all bombard sarah m g with suport emails to help.

  25. ellie says:

    But SMG has kissed girls before. Doesn't anyone remember Cruel Intentions? Selma Blair? This magic moment?

    Ah, but see, there was a Buffy movie.It just really did not work out. Horrible and lame stuff. To most, anyway. I haven't seen it. I just saw featurettes and stuff for it on the Buffy TV series' dvd's.

    • Me says:

      Yeah but Joss Whedon pulled out of the original movie because it wasn't being made in the way he envisioned. And it had different actors and characters! And it really isnt anything like the series!!!! A new Buffy movie would be awesome!

  28. Me says:

    I hope they do a movie…GET BUFFY AND ANGEL BACK 2GETHER!!!!

  29. Russ Rogers says:

    Here is the reason a new Buffy movie will get made and soon: "Twilight." We have a Teen Vampire Movie making $70 million domestic in it's opening weekend. Hollywood is nothing if not lazy, cynical and unimaginative. Look for a SLEW of Romantic Vampire Movies in the near future. When the Buffy Movie gets made, look for the romance level to be bumped up. Buffy won't be going for any girls, my guess is she will be back in the arms of Angel versus Spike. Why? Because David Boreanaz is the "dreamier" vampire.

    I'm really not a big fan on comics, and can't imagine Buffy being turned into a comic. I know some people love it already, but I hate it. Sorry, I just hate it. I can't believe it's not on TV anymore, it's my favourite show and I would do anything just to see Buffy and Angel together again! I hated seeing Angel leave at the end of series 3. For me, season 5 of Angel just went off the tracks. But, what do I know? Right? I'm a 'BANGEL' fan, what can I say?!

  31. Amends says:

    I don't care anymore now..A movie, a series.. just get BUFFY BACK!

    Bring back Tara!Yes to a Buffy movie!But please bring back Tara…

    I think "Buffy II" should actually be "Fray" or what ever. This would let Wedon continue the slayer chronology without messing with the Buffy stuff. Plus.., the future, space ships, aliens, maybe a background shot of Serenity taking off in the distance…….. Plus, I wanna see that sythe ax again. SWEET!

    I've been a huge Buffy fan since I saw the movie back in 92, the series blew my mind, and now I'm following the comics (which are great but some times a little too much out of character in my opinion) and I'd love to see in making it to the big screen, but on the other hand, it's very risky, it may backfire not fulling everyone's expectations, I know that all fans around the globe will go and watch it, and it will be box office hit; but what if the story isn't as good as we're hoping for, what if it turns out like the x files movie? big hit series, not so good movie plot…One thing's for sure, whatever the result i'll be of the first ones to get my ticket to the cinema :P
