It’s only been four years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended but it seems like fans have been clamoring for a reunion movie for much longer. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen any time soon. Though Buffy faced all sorts of evil demons, trying to “go home again” is what that terrifies Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Of a Buffy movie, Gellar tells Moviehole, “I have to be honest. That thought really scares me. Buffy was a movie and it didn’t work because her story was longer than that. This was about a girl that you had to get to know and it took so long to figure out how to crack the ending so that people weren’t upset. Of course I never say never, so I’m not saying no, but my fear would be to open something like that up again, to only end it again.” Gellar also believes that Sex and the City had a great finale and is curious to see how the follow-up movie will be handled.
Unless the Buff-ster changes her mind, it looks like we’ll just have to settle for creator Joss Whedon’s current Buffy projects; the “season eight” comic books (published monthly) and Anthony Stewart Head’s return as Rupert Giles in the forthcoming Ripper project (still in development). Stay tuned!
