Joss Whedon has a huge group of devoted fans thanks, in large part, to two of his creations. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spin-off, "Angel," helped Whedon achieve a cult status that's almost unparalleled.
But even his ardent fans couldn't convince a network to give his "Firefly" series a chance. Cancelled after just a few weeks, the fans weren't about to let the series go quietly into the night. Their efforts paid off as Universal Studios gave the go-ahead to a movie based on the show.
Check out what writer/director Joss Whedon has to say about writing "Serenity" for fans and people who are unfamiliar with the "Firefly" TV series, his cast, and the status of "Wonder Woman" in this interview video from the premiere of "Serenity."
