I don't think anyone would want a movie of the "verse" tht DIDN'T include any of the main characters ie: Buffy/Angel.

Secndary characters like Spike, Faith and Willow just won't work. IMO

Because I never thought there was ever any serious talk about a Buffyverse feature film, except maybe by the fans. All the chatter I've heard has been about TV movies and I think that secondary characters could carry one of those - it wouldn't cost as much and the target audience would be right there - and quite frankly, I think it would be more interesting to explore characters we don't know as much about than the two we know everything about.

I think that might be part of the reason why Serenity made it to feature status - it's the beginning of a franchise with new characters who have yet to be explored and there's already a devoted fan base - there's a lot of room for growth, not so much for Buffy and Angel.

And Firefly lasted like what 6, maybe 7 episodes before FoX cancelled it? Not enough time to really get into the characters 100% or their stories. Totally different from Buffy in every aspect.

I do agree with you that Buffy's story is quite done. I think all of their story is quite done which is why a spinoff is really a moot point.

As I said before they'll need to re-start the franchise with a bunch of "NEW" characters. And that will take awhile.

It doesn't matter if Firefly is sci-fi, when you're putting money into genre you want it to be at the beginning of a potential franchise, not at the end. Firefly was on FOX only very briefly, but it sold a gazllion DVDs and since then the fan base has grown. The fan base can grow even more as the story and characters develop -not to mention that there'll be a new market for all the ancillary merchandise.
