It really irritates me the way Freddie and a few others talk about it being a failure as a movie once, so it automatically guarantees any other film of Buffy being a failure too. Buffy the film and tv show are very different animals for exactly one reason. Joss Whedon. The movie failed because it was taken away from Joss and dumped on by everyone else from its cast to its director. The tv show was a success because of the fact Joss had complete control. So for Freddie to be spouting off about never doing a Buffy movie becuase it’d be a failure because the last movie was is nothing short of idiotic.
Then again Freddie Prinze Jnr’s opinions on what is good/bad or succesful/failure are hardly worth listening too judged on his films.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by L2Slayer :....... :( I hope Freddie is delirious because he isnt in no movies lately. Sarah must do it one day for her wonderful fans. If it werent for us viewers she’d still be doing crappy auditions.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Lightess :That’s likely do to that the actress and production sucked!! They didn’t listen to what Joss said... while with the show it was all Joss. It’s stupid to think that Sarah wouldn’t do it coz of that. There’s another reason and it’s not fear that the movie will suck. Freddie has no idea what he’s talking about or he’s lying through his teeth.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by darthxander :????What???The???F*&k???!!
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by freddiephobe :Freddie is a real turkey. What a ditz!
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :He’s not Sarah, so why should he tell everyone what she will or won’t do?
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :AWW,what’s the matter Freddie, upset she won’t do another Scooby Doo movie with you?
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :She may not want to do Buffy right now, but when her career starts to fade away a little... She’ll probably do it to boost her profile. I mean just look at a lot of movies that get sequels just because the main actor hasn’t worked in awhile. I hear Stallone is going to do Rambo 4.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :Who cares? I’ve got my feelings on any future projects and I’ve already voiced those. If they do continue and add anything new to the verse they can do it without SMG. No biggie.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :That just shows how much he knows about his wife’s career. moron
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :’Kay, FPJ should shut his hole. I just don’t like hearing him talk, much less about things he’s speculating toward. But you know what? There’s really nothing here that we haven’t heard before. I don’t think Joss has *ever* said anything about a feature Buffy film. It’s not the right medium for it, IMO. Kristin? I realize you’ve given up any pretense of credibility, but why are you talking to him in the first place, especially about Buffy?
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :I’m sorry, but he’s right. The buffy movie isn’t going to happen (thank God!!!!!!). She has so much going on for her other than that. I’m not necessarily a Buffy fan. I’m a sarah fan. I’d rather see her do non-Buffy films. Also, I think Freddie knows sarah better than everyone posting here. He’s married to her. He’d know.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :Actually, Freddie clearly meant the Bali-story as something positive that showed that the tv show was a hit. And he’s absolutely right - the show was a hit and its purpose was played out, so why make a film?
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :He’s not saying anything different then what she herself has been saying since last summer.Until and unless she sees a great script from Joss Whedon,talk of a Buffy movie is moot and she won’t consider it without that.The Buffyverse itself isn’t tops on Joss’s radar right now anyway.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Anonymous :Dumbest thing I ever have heard.
Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Brianne :You know, article like this really make me angry. I love Buffy and at one point I liked Sarah Michelle Gellar. But she is so ungrateful and so blind. There are hundreds of actress that would kill to have Buffy on their resume and most of the fans that go see her movies are Buffy fans. If she is not careful and doesn’t get that stake out of her butt, she is going to alienate all her fans and she won’t have a movie career. I want to see a Buffy movie, to see all helmouths closed and Buffy/Angel, happily ever after. I was the fan that went to see her movie because of Buffy. But Sarah Michelle Gellar is the biggest B*, and I don’t go to see her movies anymore. I hope her attitude changes and she embrace Buffy. It makes me so upset the things she say about being stuck with Buffy. I don’t know why she hates it so much. Because when she says that stuff, never wanting to do that role again, to "move on," she loses another fan!!!!! Feel free to email me:)
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :Nothing Sarah has said or done has shown she isn’t grateful for Buffy and I’m grateful for all the hard work she put into it for seven seasons.The same goes for David and the eight seasons he played Angel.I love B/A too but I would not want a movie unless Sarah was happy with the script,the same as the rest of the cast.I wouldn’t want a Buffy movie that way.A Buffy film should be special not something thrown togethsr to cash in.I’m sure if Joss wrote a killer script which she loved and did justice to all the characters and the Buffyverse within a 2 hour film,she would definitely consider doing it.If you’ve followed her interviews in the past year,you’ll see that’s what she has said numerously along with the points FPJ brings up here.Nothings changed in both regards I’m positive of.If Joss come to her with a script she likes then she’ll do it,until then she will not sign on site unseen and I wouldn’t have it any other way.I want all the actors excited about a script if one is presented.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Kaity :
For the record, Anyone who thinks that she owes you, is dead wrong,Pleae get a life. I am a b/aer. I don’t think she owes me. She gave her heart and soul as Buffy. She gave me a wonderful love story I will tresure. Yes, I do hope one day it continues. But I only want her to be happy. I want it to be because she can’t say no because the script, ship aside, is that good. Otherwise I will watch her wherever she takes me.
If you are her fan, the fan of the actress, then you will relize this is one character out of many she has played. It might be her most well known, next to knedell, but it is not only who she is. She has shown NO disresepct in saying she wants a good script and will only do it on her timeline. Joss is not out there asking for her right now anyways. So what do you want her to be screaming I want to play Buffy again, and wait as Joss is busy elsewhere. Get a grip.
I can say without a doubt, I am her fan, there is a whole website called SMG.COm that are her fans that are not alienated, or calling her a bitch. You feel this way, I feel sorry for you. You need to let go. You are one of those same people that have been angry at JM for taking what you consider a beneath him role in Smallville. Wake up. Not your life. He is excited, that is all that matters. Smg is excited in her life with her choices that is that matters.
So as b/aer let me say rock on Smg. Good luck in all your career ventures. Take us to the stars. If the timing is right, come back one day. Otherwise good luck and I will be in the seats.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Zoti Bemba :Brianne: Of course you are entitled to any opinion about SMG you choose, but keep in mind that this report is a re-hashed re-write by a second-tier gossip columnist of a second rate actor’s secondhand opinion of what his wife may or may not choose to do should something happen on a project that he really doesn’t know anything about. I would treat it as the piece of dandelion fluff it is — a puff of wind and it’s gone.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Glory :I think Freddie, not being the brightest kid, said that there wasn’t a chance that SMG would do Buffy RIGHT NOW and not nessesarily forever. Hell, Sarah’s motto is "Never say never", she’s never ever said she was definatley not going to do a Buffy movie because there’s a chance she could get a really good script. And what the hell is with Freddie saying Joss is "on the movie train now"? I’ve never heard anyone say something so ridiculous.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :@Brianne So what you’re saying is that because *you* want her to do a movie, she should do it to make you happy? There are two or three other comments here by people who think the series ended wonderfully and I’m in that group, too. And you know what? It seems Sarah and Joss are in it as well. Neither of them owe you or any fan anything and if you hate her now because she’s not marching at your will...well, I think that shows just how much of a *fan* you were in the first place. She’s always said she’d be happy to be remembered as Buffy, but wanted to move on to other things.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :IF I was FPJ, Id never comment on BTVS for any reason he just gets setup. Buffy the show is LEGENDARY, I wouldnot be in such a hurry to mess with that myself. If they do something new and its not as good they will get TRASHED for it. Dont say JOSS is a perfect because a TON of his *fans* killed him over season 6 and 7. Exactly why is SMG a B? She is an actress who played a role well for 7 years. It is off the air and she is still working. END OF STORY. She said it over and over if the script is good never say never but in the mean time she is moving on. JOSS HAS MOVED ON. Fact is everyone but James has moved on for now. SO its okay for everyone but SMG? Remeber Stars Wars fans were DYING for new movies until Lucas made them and he got TRASHED FOR THEM. He made money but he STILL gets trashed. SOme things should be left alone. Continue teh verse with new charaters.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :Shut. Up. Freddie.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by GL :Personally I think it was Freddie who talked Sarah out of playing the role as Buffy again. Once they got married, I have the feeling that he told her that television was too small for her, and that she should do movies and forget about Buffy. I’ve heard Sarah say before, that she hates being called Buffy, but then again thats just because she isnt the character. She wants people to see her as her and not the slayer. But then again if it is her that is so stuck up, would she feel better if people came up to her and said "Hey it’s Kathryn!" (cruel intentions) instead of "Hey it’s Buffy!"? Well wake up and smell the steak Mrs. Prinze, you are more famous for your role as Buffy Summers, than ANY other role you’ve ever had in your entire life, even the bigscreen ones.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :Buffy’s dead. Joss killed her at the end of season five and with the exception of the musical didn’t look back. As Freddie says, Joss has moved on successfully into film. It’s time fans and television critics let both Sarah and Joss go onto whatever success their careers will bring them. Best of luck from me to both of them. They both have wonderful stories to tell and I will watch them both :)
Thursday 28 July 2005, by TwisTz :Freddie is an idiot. Whats new.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :i don’t think Freddie really knows what he is saying. Sarah has said in many many many interviews, a Buffy movie isn’t gonna happen soon, but that if a good script came along she would definitley look. She has said this many times, and she is always saying how proud she is to have had played such an amzing character, so I do think she is grateful for Buffy, and you never know about the future.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by JJ :Sorry but atleast Sarah is famous.What exactly is Freddie doing these days?
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :I just love how ignorant alot of fans are about things. Oh, and I’m talking to you J2U, in case anyone was wondering. She was meant to appear midseason, but backed out because of a familial obligation. Whedon and the gang never bothered to contact her again until after the it was learned the show was cancelled and by that time she was in Japan filming the Grudge. What was she supposed to do, walk off the set? She came back in time for the finale and *Joss* didn’t want her in it, so I’m not seeing how that’s her fault. Where’s the backlash against DB for saying he absolutely wouldn’t do Angel again unless for the big screen, which will never happen? Oh, but that’s different, of course, isn’t it? I love my sexist fandom.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :Unfortunately DB has gotten simillar backlash for not wanting to play Angel again unless it was a theatrical film.Personally I agree with him about it being time to raise the bar if he reprised the role.As for Sarah on Angel,yes she was originally supposed to do the 100th episode and possibly another,probably the episode before it as well I think.She understandably had to back out when her aunt died and so they brought in Charisma instead.When Angel was canceled,Joss wanted to have her in episode 20 or 21 but she was already committed to The Grudge.The Angel cancelation caught everybody by surprise so they were scrambling.Joss already had the end of the season worked out before the were canceled.SMG couldn’t do those two episodes but she did offer to do the finale since she would be back from Japan then and available.Joss turned her down since,"Not Fade Away" was locked in at that point and episode 20 was already set in stone as well.TGIQ was concieved after they knew for sure Sarah wouldn’t be advailable,if she had been we would of gotten a very different episode 20 or 21.So SMG did want to do the last episode of Angel and even contacted Joss and offered to.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :I don’t even want the possibility of a Whedon movie unless Cordelia is brought back and she and Angel finally get together.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Anonymous :
Wow. I’ve never seen so many idiots post at once.
Yeah, what would FPJ know- he’s JUST HER HUSBAND. He’s just saying what SMG won’t. People need to move on.
Thursday 28 July 2005, by jester :
I find it incredibly lame how so many people here are bashing Freddie. You may not like what he had to say, but it’s the truth. This is coming from a fan of "Buffy", SMG, and Freddie. Buffy has had her time, and it’s good that everyone has moved on really. I’d like new ventures for both Joss and Sara, not retreads of the past.
Also, Freddie is currently working on his upcoming ABC sitcom, I believe. It looks like it could be hit or miss, but who knows. He’s still working, and he’s certainly had a nice niche film career in cheesy romantic comedies. Really, give or take he and his wife have fairly comparable careers as movie stars, though SMG certainly broke out with "The Grudge".
Thursday 28 July 2005, by Angel-fan :It’s better to be known as something, than nothing at all.
Friday 29 July 2005, by Zoti Bemba :jester: You like what Freddie said and so it becomes "the truth." Do you see the problem there? I’m neutral on what Freddie said (I’d have to see some indication from Joss that he wants to do a Buffy movie before I’d care one way or another if SMG would do it or not) so I’m looking at the situation itself: Freddie is supposed to be promoting his new sit-com, and instead he’s answering questions about his wife’s career plans. Sorry, but that doesn’t sound like "truth" to me, that sounds like "lame lack of ability to give a tactfully short answer (’you should ask her’) and move on to the next question." From the other report I’ve read (Ausiello’s) Kristin then editted Freddie’s comments to make them sound even dumber then they were, and added a little intro that sugested that somehow SMG is unable or unwilling to speak for herself. Now, maybe you agree with Kristin on that point and think that Freddie was perfectly justified in extending his time in the limelight by gossiping about his wife, but I don’t. I’m a big believer in the emancipation of women and I’m willing to take SMG at her word. If that word’s still "maybe," that’s good enough for me.
Friday 29 July 2005, by Anonymous :Okay, okay. Everything else aside, how can you possibly think marriage means ANYTHING in hollywood. By the time she’s dead, SMG will probably be married 5 times. Read a tabloid, marriages don’t stick. The End.

i am a sarah fan and i am personally ok if she doesn’t do a movie, i would love it but i’m ok w/out it. and i definitley wouldn’t want a movie without her, so i’m not sure if i would watch one with anyone else.
buffy ended when it was suppossed to, and although angel ended prematurely, i think they should both stay where they are when they ended.
don’t get me wrong, i am a B/Aer and would love to see a movie, but im ok if they don’t. i mean it could be a horrible mmovie, considering, what are they gonna do with the plot?
sarah has said that one of the reasons it would be hard to do a movie is because it would be hard to tell a whole story in 2 hours, that buffy worked because you saw them grow, etc. and that would be hard to do in a movie.
but she has NOT said never to a movie, so i think ppl really need to stop bashing her and saying she is ungrateful. she has stated numerous times how much she loved being on buffy, how "amazing" it was, that it was "a decision she would 2nd guess for a long time", and it was "virtually impossible" to end.
so i think we should be grateful for all that she has given and done for us!!
Friday 29 July 2005, by ryan :I hate that freddie is making a decidign for sarah if she would do a Buffy movie. Freddie said Sarah wont do a Buffy movie maybe because he dosent want her to. The first buffy movie that was made did infact fail and he dosent want her to put her career in danger. But he should have more faith in Sarah because she and many other talented people made Buffy into one of the strongest female women on t.v.
Friday 29 July 2005, by fAN9ATIC :WHAT THE F17CK DOES HE KNOW HUH??? he shouldn’t speak for SMG and comment on things he has absolutely no idea about. he should just SHUT IT!
Friday 29 July 2005, by *Ludo* :sarah saied that! she won’t do buffy anymore...and she always say! i’m sorry for my english....i’m italian! ^__*
Friday 29 July 2005, by SUSAN :Sarah Gellar has always stated ,she NO longer wants to be Buffy...she wants to do other things....Freddy is just telling it like it is..This is how Sarah feels...he doesnt tell her what to say or do...shes not a puppet...Its Quite obvious no one is listening too sarah ,so maybe they might to Freddy Jr....Guess his aproach isnt working either.....(Sarah and Freddy forever together never to part))
Friday 29 July 2005, by noo :wow, well firstly im not shocked that this person asking the question wanted nothing to do with what Freddie is up to nowadays and so have to ask questions about Smg, and secondly he’s just jealous because the movies he has been in are crap! come on, shes all that and scooby doo, oh Freddie..where are the oscars?? Sarah Michelle gellar i admit should do a little more interviewing and i know she wants to put buffy behind her, but when ever shes on a show or in a new movie, they’re going to introduce her as Buffy the Vampire slayer. the names always going to stay with her. Plus shes a great actress, but i think she should stop doing ’scary’ movies all the time ( im ignoring the fact that she was in scooby doo) and do some more films like cruel intentions, shes great at playing a bitch.
Friday 29 July 2005, by Kenneth :Sarah won’t do Buffy anymore, BIG DEAL. There are probably alot of other actresses that would love to jump into the shoes that Sarah did with Buffy. Just because she acted the part doesnt make her the character. The actress that did the voice for the video games did a damn good job IMHO. If there is going to be a movie, I would like to see her act the part rather than SMG. As for DB, he said he would do an Angel movie even after he stated he wouldn’t do the t.v. show again.
Saturday 30 July 2005, by Miranda :Why does Freddie feel he has to speak for his wife all the time? He said something not long after Sarah quit the show that pissed a bunch of people off. Something about Sarah not being appreciated on the show, which I could kinda tell just from watching it. I give the girl credit for sticking with the show as long as she did. They DESTROYED her character and I wish the show would have ended before it did simply because of that. Anyway, I never liked Freddie, not even before she married him. It just seems that whenever he opens his mouth, something comes out that shouldn’t.
Saturday 30 July 2005, by Anonymous :You people do remember JOSS saying he wasnot doing anything with Buffy for awhile if ever. Somehow no one jumps on him. They *TALK* about Spike stuff just like they *talked* about Ripper. I dont think we will see eith unless Serenity fails. For the record alot of the characters personality was taken from teh atcors. I dont want to see some actress playing SMG playing Buffy. Just work with the others characters and stop whining before they all give up.
Saturday 30 July 2005, by Anonymous :Sarah will never do a Buffy movie. She is far to intelligent to throw her career down that toilet.
Monday 1 August 2005, by Sarah :First off, the last person who wrote was an idiot!!!! Sarah is intelligant and that’s why she can choose for herself..... I have a mixed opinion I want a Buffy movie And I want to see Sarah in it but if Sarah never does anything Buffy again I won’t hate her. The same with David and James...we’re lucky we got that much.... As for what Freddy said I really don’t thank people should be doging him out casue it’s the reporters fault she’s talking to Freddie not sarah if she want to know something about Buffy she should ask Sarah cause then we would know exactly what’s going on so, the story here is the report is stupid!!!! Furthermore, I’d rather see an Angel film on the big screen (I agree, don’t think any of the shows should go back to tv)Angel had a clifhanger, if they could get Buffy and Angel together in one film that would be great but if they were 2 different movies I would rather see Angel. If you agree or disagree feel free to contact me :)
Monday 1 August 2005, by Anonymous :Why is it that so many people here think they know Sarah better than Freddie? He is the one who is married to her. I’d like to think I can talk about my husband’s career, and he can talk about mine. Why should a celebrity be any different? She has already said this, so it isn’t new information. Freddie isn’t stupid. Saying Sarah won’t do Buffy doesn’t make him a moron. In fact most of you here are morons for saying such a thing.
Tuesday 2 August 2005, by Anonymous :I think SMG, DB and JW owe it to their fans to give us some kind of closure to the Angel, Buffy story once and for all.
Wednesday 3 August 2005, by caramel :okay dont be stupid maybe he is speaking for her because she asked him to ever thought about that everyone knows that she doesnt like all of the press attention and maybe she asked him to tell people that if anyone asked so that she wouldnt have to.
Thursday 4 August 2005, by Malika Leigh :God, get over it, what makes you all soo sure that its going to be a Bangel movie? crazy shippers, there ships sailed, deal with it once bitten forever stupid!, I’m not a shipper, I liked Bangel and all other ships, but its obvious if there will be a couple reuniting it’ll be Buffy/Spike not Buffy/Angel they’ve paired both of them with different people, there trying to show that they’ve moved on, Infact I think Buffy will stay with the immortal, its really stupid when people cant get their heads out of their shipper asses and dont see the shows for what it really is "ohh Bangel are going to end up together, they never talk to eachother, talk once a year, have relationships with other people.. yeeeh forever!" "ohh Buffy and Spike are going to end up together "ohh buffy and riley" shut up! and use logic for once!

Friday 12 August 2005, by Anonymous :Someone posted earlier that Sarah asked to be in the finale. That is incorrect. She said she wouldn’t do the finale long before Joss ever said that. He just said that because of his massive ego. He was mad because Sarah wouldn’t travel thousands of miles from Japan and fall at his feet. He badmouths her( and Charisma) and it gets old. Buffy is dead. Keep it that way. Sarah can become a movie star or do another tv show. She needs to do something different for her career. Who cares what you people want her to do. She has plenty of fans that never ever ever ever want her to do Buffy again. I didn’t even like the show in the last couple years. Alyson can act. They foccused on her ugly mug for too long, because Joss was partial to her. As for Angel, I’ve probably seen 5 episodes, so I don’t care.
Wednesday 28 September 2005, by sara :I think buffy shud cum bk but a different girl i watched every single episode (not a geek way) it was a ace programme or they should repeat them cos loads of people i know looked up 2 sarah
Thursday 31 August 2006, by princesspolly :Ok- you lot are nuts! It is totally sarah’s choice if she is fed up with buffy- shes been doing it forever, and she wants to stop big deal. And I hate that you all bash freddie cos he knows her 100 times more than you- he is her husband whereas half of you are just saddos that look up sarah’s interviews on websites. Sarah and Freddie know where their going and if she wants to quit buffy then so what, why can’t she? and if she doesn’t want to do a buffy movie cos she wants to be with her husband then why should she? I am a sarah, buffy and freddie fan and i wish you guys would stop bashing them!!!
