Because...DISNEY...



https://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/ent/firefly-reboot-disney.html


My source tells me that Disney is in early development on a Firefly reboot. The new show would start the story of Captain Mal Reynolds and his crew aboard the Serenity over from scratch, with an aim to make this a long-running series on Disney+. There is a twist here and the twist is that they see the show as ideal family-friendly programming for Disney+. My source tells me they’re planning to target it more at a PG-adventure, family audience and less at the sort of PG-13 dynamic the original Joss Whedon show went for.

This shift in tone suggests the new version of Firefly might drop characters like Inara, who is basically a prostitute. Instead it’ll probably lean more into the fun and adventure aspect of the universe’s stories. Fans may initially be unhappy, but it’s easy to see a way it could work.

My source was unable to confirm to me whether series creator Joss Whedon is actually involved in the new Firefly reboot. Whedon has recently been embroiled in a strange controversy with some of his former actors and it’s made him difficult to employ.

My second thought...where is the "adventure" part coming in at??

There's no aliens. The worlds have been terraformed. Anomalies have been mapped.

Besides the triple moon/sun/ purple plants gags...what's there to "explore"??

AND don't even begin to tell me they are going to do away with the petty thieving of it all???


Beginning to sound like Elsa And The Other Princesses Go To Space??


Ugh.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of that description. If Fox wasn't bad enough at dumbing it down, Disney is going to go above and beyond and turn them all into a family comedy. That is not a recipe for success IMO.

They mention they don't know if Joss is involved. I can't imagine he would be if they're trying to remove all the grit and drama from it.

So, basically this is Firefly in name only. I'm not interested.

Disney owns Star Wars and that is action packed. Those already made play on tv all the time so who knows. Personally, I was a fan of the original and don't much care to see a new cast.

I don't mind a new cast so much, although they just white wash everyone these days and Ken and Barbie them...perfect fake hair, teeth, and boobs at alll times...

I mean that's what I liked to begin with... is that they were actual people. Pretty, but had character...

I have a HUGE issue with them taking out companions and giving over to religious extremism.

Even in the future, we're not allowed to discuss sex or have any damn body autonomy?

When are we going to catch up to other countries and stop outlawing physical freedoms over sex and death??

I swear...we win the lottery...we're outta here!!

That sounds like you AGREE with them sterilizing out companions, but I think you mean it the other way

It appears they are also re-booting the comics with Zoe's kid... in her 20's... Captain of the ship. When you can pick a whole new crew they can be squeaky clean, sadly.

The more I see of Disney the more I realize that they ARE turning into Blue Sun, trying to "socially engineer" stupid people. That's what FF was about. It never works.

Some people always WANT to be ignorant shit no matter what. Only by fixing the biology that causes that are we going to get anywhere. Hopefully before we blow ourselves to bits...

Color me silly but I think the firefly fan base has probably grown a bit sine it first aired. Maybe Disney should tread lightly to avoid pissing them/us off.

Name a single reboot that was good in the last few decades. I'm sure there is one out there, but I can't think of one.

That being said, I've been trying to tell you about this for years now Wish.

I'm going to assume that since we're on a Firefly fan site that this show meant more to you than your average property and that is why this particular one is bothering you.


By the time Disney gets its hands on Firefly, The Goonies is going to look gritter.




If Inara is removed, or her profession is changed from that of a prostitute, that won't be because of the religious right though. That's the ever-growing powers that be consolidating and sterilizing everything.

In their eyes, Captain Marvel is Girl Power and Inara from OG Firefly is an objectified woman who is a terrible role model for girls.



Maybe this is what we need. A few more things that you like being censored and cancelled.



Sorry it had to be Firefly.


If Inara isn't in it, or she's not a companion, I won't be watching. Doesn't matter what else they promise. Not interested.

She has three kids now. I highly doubt she was gonna come back anyway.

In the series she'd be a house mother or something else by now. Maybe a General.

Yeah, General Inara

A rumor before the pandemic is still just a rumor.

Peeps - whaaa... hate to break it to you, but the Firefly people fell in love is long dead and buried - even the worms have moved on.

Disney+ sucks for adult/mature entertainment - that's a given. It's in the business of making money, and it wouldn't be G-14ing Firefly if they didn't think it would MAKE MONEY. So spread some blame to the consumer. Besides, how did Firefly do in it's first run?

And this is just one article - rumors mostly. Probably some Trek fan just having a laugh.

If that's what Disney actually does do, I'll definitely watch it just out of curiosity.

Be glad they aren't going to Mark Hamill Mal and the rest of the gang.

I didn't mean the actress playing her. I meant the character and her profession, unchanged.

This IS supposed to be a reboot with the same characters, is it not?


They obviously can't do anything with the same cast. I said years back that it was too late to put OG Firefly back on the air. Everyone is too old now. Nobody wants to see grandpa Mal and grandma Inara.

Firefly got well over 2 Million viewers per episode.

They renewed Batwoman for season 2 on the CW even after the main actress quit. The first episode had 1.8 Million viewers. The last episode had less than 800,000 viewers. The lowest watched episode just cleared 600,000 episodes.


But this IS FOX we're talking about...

It says they would be starting over from scratch. Most likely "we can do whatever
spin we like to any character" would apply.

You'd be ok with someone else playing Inara as long as it was still "Inara"??

The Disney reboot could be based on Firefly: A Brand New Verse.

Set twenty years after the original series and movie, with the daughter of Zoe and Wash as the new captain of the Serenity, a new crew to captain.



Set 20 years after the events of Firefly, Serenity soars the 'Verse once again with a new captain – Emma, the daughter of Wash and Zo !

The old crew of Serenity has gone their own way and now Emma is working to prove herself to Zoe, alongside a new crew of castaways and misfits just trying to stay afloat.

Same with Mal and Wash and Book too. One out of those three is a given and if the acting hits the high bar of the original, it can still work.

Like I said, nobody wants to see Grandpa Mal and Grandma Inara. If they're going to use the same characters than everyone needs to be replaced.

You all know how much I liked Inara, so that would really be a shame. In a lot ways she, Simon, Kaylee, and Book were the heart of the crew - pushing people (Mal) to not fall to their darker and more base nature.

That said, she didn't look like a companion anymore in the last comic I read. Though whether those comics were "good" exactly is another story. Still, space pirates isn't a bad look - which is the only way I can think of that they could actually pull this off.

I actually hadn't heard about the brand new verse comic but I think it is an excellent idea. There's a lot of room there to bring in a fresh new cast but allow original series cast members to make stops in. But I agree, Disney would most likely ruin it. I wish Whedon or Espenson would run with the idea to one of the 800 streaming services and make something worth while out of it.

I wish Whedon or Espenson would run with the idea to one of the 800 streaming services and make something worth while out of it.




I'd like to hope that there is someone at Disney that actually liked the series and wants to do right by it, but I have a feeling it's just content that comes with a pre-cut fan base to them.

Then the jokes on them because there is no such thing as a pre-cut browncoat.

I'm sure everybody that loved the new Star Wars will love the new Firefly.

Exactly. JJ Abrams said he'd never been a fan of Star Trek or even really seen it before he went about tearing its soul out to make a pointless action movie. And he did the same thing to Star Wars for Disney.

They think we'll be grateful for any new content and hope that some Browncoats don't have Disney+ yet and will fork over their money.
