FIREFLY 15th Anniversary Video Includes Brand New Footage Of Serenity From The Show's Original VFX Team

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the science-fiction show Firefly original VFX house Zoic Studios released a tribute video containing the first brand new footage of Serenity in flight in over a decade.

It's hard to believe that it's been 15 years since we were introduced the verse that was Joss Whedon's Firefly and though the show only ran for a total of 14 episodes, it managed to connect so strongly with audiences that it became a cult phenomenon - even leading to a 2005 feature film follow up, Serenity .

Desires for a revival of the show have persisted every day since, with both Whedon and FOX going back and forth on whether they would consider a new version of the sci-fi western. If any fan is still looking to scratch-the-itch for new Firefly no matter how small though, then look no further. 

Zoic Studios, the VFX company responsible for the show's Emmy winning effects, have put together a tribute video celebrating the long-canceled show which contains the first new footage of Serenity and the world Whedon created since 2005, and what will more than likely prove to be the only new material we see. 

So put your dinosaur toys away, get out of your bunk and soar like a leaf on the wind as you reminisce about some big damn heroes.
 

 

In honor of the 15th anniversary of Joss Whedon’s cult sci-fi favorite “Firefly,” we've launched a reel that celebrates the epic journey of Serenity and its valiant crew. The compilation highlights some of the best VFX work on the beloved show, which launched Zoic in 2002 and earned an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Visual Effects for a Series.” We dug into the archives to create this commemorative reel, rebuilding Serenity with the original team and put together a shiny new sequence followed by an assembly of some of the most beloved and quotable moments of the franchise.


What do you think? Are you a Browncoat? Have you missed seeing Serenity? Would you like to see the show return? Leave your thoughts below.
