Disney owns both properties these days, so while Whedon was doing the publicity rounds for Avengers: Age of Ultron, we asked him if he’d be interested in potentially relocating to a galaxy far, far away.

“Right now I’d be interested in a long nap! But are you kidding? It’s Star Wars! It’s always going to be Star Wars!”

The writer-director added that while it’s great to mine all these properties from the past for material, studios should also be striving to come up with original ideas.

“It’s pretty exciting – I have to say. I saw the new trailer for Star Wars as everyone else had. ‘It’s good to be home.’ But at the same time we’re all painfully aware that at some point we’ll be running on fumes. I love working with the characters I grew up reading about but we need to create the characters that other people are going to grow up reading about.”

I'd like if Whedon did one of the solo, stand-alone film rather than part of the new trilogy.

I'd rather see him do some original stuff he gots some clout now to gets some of his ideals made.

Yup.

I'd much rather see another Firefly series than another Star Wars movie.

He's chasing that chedda baby!  He'd basically remake Serenity with a million times the budget and make a trillion times more money.  I mean Mal is a better character than Han Solo any damn way.

Everything about Firefly is better than Star Wars.

Literally everything.

It would be hilarious if he did a stand alone movie about a group of rogue space pirates and then just hired everyone from Firefly.

Much better light saber fights in Firefly. Also a better Death Star.

Because those things were dumb, and so their absence is superior to their presence.

Haha I'm really leaning into it now. I'm not sure even I believe most of what I say.








No, but really though Star Wars is terrible. I fucking do not get it, and don't think I ever will.
