If they make it a family show it's gonna suck.

On Disney+ instead of Hulu? Eh... I'll wait to hear more, but I'm thinking pass.

Don't we already have a live Cowboy Bebop for the youngsters?

Firefly was undoubtedly a popular series, garnering up to 4.7 million viewers per episode.

Sure, Hollywood, you already raped my childhood, might as well rape my young adulthood as well.

too banal; didn't read:  we don't know shiat yet, here's some vague conjecture.

Oh, and no Joss Whedon.

That's it.

The actual series itself can't live up to its own hype, the new series doesn't stand a chance.

Hulu won't be around much longer. It will all be wrapped into Disney in a year or so. They killed "FX on Hulu" yesterday.

So basically, it's going to be Lego firefly.
 
2021-12-08 11:32:54 PM  
Reboot?

Why a reboot? The Firefly Verse is still a ripe environment for story telling that doesn't involve the characters in the original series. Why not just tell a different story of a different crew of people trying to make their living in that universe?
 
2021-12-08 11:39:41 PM  
Between this and X-Men '97, Disney+ really knows how to pander to me.

I am glad to not be the only one who feels this way.

It doesn't appear from the article that there is any evidence that this is actually happening. Can we not with obvious clickbait?
 
2021-12-08 11:55:51 PM  
Disney+ made Mandalorian work against all odds so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt on this. Hell, I'll give them even more than that if they retcon the travesty that was Serenity and reset the whole 'verse with a real reboot.  I'm glad Whedon isn't involved for the obvious workplace reasons too and don't think we'll miss him.

I've got to think the Chinese market is going to be heavily targeted by this too.  Anything showing westerners speaking Chinese in a future setting and the likelihood they'll cast a Chinese actor/actress is going to sell extremely well there and not run into the Three Body Problem multiple production house fiasco that is about to happen.

Yeah, it's weird. If you look for Firefly reboot news, only this site linked and some other very very unreliable clickbait website even discuss the idea with random articles every six months. So I guess this news is probably more of a leaf on the wind than news that should take you to your bunk.

I don't understand why they don't drop all the 20th Century Fox, Miramax, etc grown-up movies on Hulu.  HBO Max has done great work with WB, and Disney/Hulu should be working with a comparable catalog.  It's a shame, watching it go to waste.
 
2021-12-09 12:14:27 AM  
I fully expect it to be a piece of shiat, developed by a committee of English lit majors who think they know science or give a shiat about a good story.  All CGI and stupid chop-socky scenes with Charley Angels level waifs beating up 300-lb MMA stars. Maybe they'll get the writers from those pieces of shiat "Tomorrow War" or "Red Notice," then I'll know it was written by mentally defective children.

F*ck that.

I'll probably watch the first 15-minutes of the first one one, become sickened and start up my copy of "Plan-9 From Outer Space" for more intelligent video.

They are! See, the all new Firefly+™ on Disney+™ tells the story of the adventures of the crew of the spaceship Calmness, led by Captain "Hal" Menolds and his second in command, Chloe Washtub, former Redshirt fighters in the war. One day while hauling passengers between planets, they discover that one passenger, Doctor Norman Ham, has smuggled his young sister, Brook Ham, inside a crate. He explains that they're on the run from the mysterious "Green Gloves".
Anyway, at some point, Dumbledore shows up and says, "You're a wizard, Hally!"
 
2021-12-09 12:54:06 AM  
They really should do a continuation from where the movie left off and start with Kaylee tracking down and dragging an older, slower Mal out of an opium den he's spent the last decade or so hiding in.

In fairness, I'm pretty sure if your young adulthood were a teenage girl, Whedon would have gone after it too.

2021-12-09 1:33:35 AM  
There's this guy who's written a half-dozen Firefly interquel novels, that aren't bad for the genre.  And he has a good grasp of the series. So either get him, or the guy who wrote the series bible for him.

Wouldn't she be more of a Kaylee?  Gal Gadot's career has been going nowhere, maybe she can play Inara?

Since he is a racist, demigouge and treats a lot of his female cast like crap, no Joss is a good thing. He can go hang out with Harvey.

OMG! This means that Joss Whedon will be able to build a time machine, go back in time and finger bang adolescent Michelle Trachtenberg all over again! But this time he will conceal it better so he'll never be banned from being alone in a room with her!

That really was a hell of a cast.

Overall the most attractive cast on television at the time.
All very talented too.
 
2021-12-09 4:42:09 AM  
Are there any good sources that say, with evidence or official confirmations, the reboot is actually happening?

Or are these just fan websites making shiat up and quoting each other for the clicks?
 
2021-12-09 5:24:53 AM  
"However, it is most likely that Disney will restart the entire series on a more family-friendly note.'

Then the expectation should be it will be Firefly in name only and adjusted accordingly.

This.  Firefly TNG or Firefly DS9.

Plenty of room in the 'Verse for more stories.  And sure, have a cameo or two if you want.  But don't reboot.  Because you won't capture that same magic.
