The JOSS WHEDON panel
by The Arrow


I personally don’t give a rat’s ass about “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” or the “Angel” TV shows. And I really didn’t care for Whedon’s “Alien Resurrection” script either. But I still quite enjoyed this panel. Joss is a funny and witty dude and he kept me amused. Here’s some Joss, Buffy and Angel stuff that you all might dig:

  • No crossover plans for “Buffy” or “Angel” just yet. They are after all on different Networks now.
     
  • The Buffy animated series is a go! They’re starting to draw for it NOW!
     
  • Buffy won’t get darker due to its network move.
     
  • You can find Buffy episodes on DVD but only in England at this point (with boring commentaries or so Joss says). Since they might start syndicating the Buffy TV series in the States next year, they will likely not be selling them in the States anytime soon, because of the conflict of interest.
     
  • Buffy is contracted for 7 seasons but Joss said that they probably have stories for at least 11 at this point. Joss also said that he shoots each season as if it was the last. On a positive note, he said that he doesn’t think that FOX wants to get rid of the show right now and that he doesn’t think that any of the stars wanted to leave the show right now either.
     
  • Joss also has a few non-Buffy related feature films in mind but wasn’t at liberty to discuss them any further. I guess that we’ll just have to wait and see.
     
  • The Buffy people accept spec scripts but only if they’re sent through an agent. Joss Whedon does not read them personally though.
     
  • When asked about his re-writing experiences, Joss said: “Have you ever been in prison? (joke) It could be a fun experience but generally people don’t take you seriously. It’s a great training ground but not a great job.”
     
  • The character of Giles will get his own show in England.
     
  • The Buffy-Robot character will be back eventually. Joss loved it!
     
  • Seth Green is not returning to the show but his character lives on in the comics. Seth is too busy with his film career.
     
  • Any Buffy movies in the works? Joss said: “It’s an open book, we’re taking it one year at a time”.
