Having just finished the DVD's I was ready for this next spring.  Looks like we'll have to wait.

From Joss Whedon on Fireflyfans.net:
Quote
Are you guys starting to hear that fanfare? Those distant drums? Are you slapping on your side-arms, pulling on your long brownish-colored coats and thumbing your crisp new bills in anticipation of the cinematic event of the year? Well, it's official: on April 22nd you, the true the blue the loyal, can step right up with the rest of America and WAIT FIVE MORE MONTHS.

Heh. See, sometimes studios shuffle around release dates...

Okay. Don't panic. right now you're panicking. you're thinking, "how could they do this to me?" But what you SHOULD be thinking is: "How could they do this to JOSS?". Seriously. That pity is mine and I want it back.

So what happened? Well, nothing terribly original. April got crowded with a lot of titles aimed at a similar demographic, and the studio decided September was a clearer corridor for the film to make the kind of impact it should. This isn't about a lack of confidence in the film -- in fact, they told me this before they even saw it. And now they have seen it, and unless they're way better liars than I'm used to, they dug it. Actually, they dug it pretty large, which is a good sign since there's not a single finished effect in the film. There's no reworking the end, no reshoots, no "does it have to be in space?". It's just a marketing issue. Now you'll get to watch lots of trailers in the summer. And hopefully, by the time it comes out, other people, people who ain't us, will get a whiff of what we're up to, and come along too.

I love this movie. I HATE waiting to show it too you. I felt pretty much the way I imagine you're feeling right now when they told me. But these guys know what they're doing, and they're trying to protect their investment, not bury it. So I gotta be a grown-up. The release date is September 30th. Hopefully it won't change again.

Spread the word. Keep the faith. And gleam the damn cube already.

-j.

Crap.

Gah.  Almost a whole 'nother year away seems like a long long time.  That really sucks, but at least the movie is coming out.  I look forward to it.

If anyone needs something Whedonesque to tide them over until then and your into anything comic related, go pick up Astonishing X-Men.   I can't recommend it highly enough.  As if Joss Whedon could do no wrong, he's doing a grade A job writing the X-Men.   Best X-Men stuff I've read in years.

I agree with you, although he did write Alien Resurrection.  Probably the only stain on his career.

Actually he wrote the original script but the end result was pretty heavily modified by others.

Great DVDs.  I picked them up when they came out and love them.  Damn shame the episode with the assasin didn't get aired (I think), that was a great episode.

I've had the box set for months but haven't gotten around to watching it yet...mostly beause the wife and I both wanted to watch it and we haven't had the time lately.

That was the last episode that aired, actually (that wasn't the pilot).  There's a scene between Mal and Inara that was reshot to better fit the DVD's line of continuity, however.
