[Creator] Joss Whedon - "I'm glad you asked for my thoughts on the announcement of Buffy the cinema film. This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths just because they can't think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my Avengers idea that I made up myself. I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER. I don't love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I'm also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly. I can't wish people who are passionate about my little myth ill. I can, however, take this time to announce that I'm making a Batman movie. Because there's a franchise that truly needs updating. So look for 'The Dark Knight Rises Way Earlier Than That Other One And Also More Cheaply And In Toronto,' rebooting into a theater near you."
[Buffy Summers] Sarah Michelle Gellar - "It was a movie! It's been made. It stars Kristy Swanson, they made it! They don't need to make another one. I think it's a horrible idea to try to do a Buffy without Joss Whedon, I mean that's like honestly...to be incredibly non-eloquent, that's the dumbest idea I ever heard."
[Xander Harris] Nicholas Brendon - "I hope their vampires don't glitter. You know, listen...I think it's a mistake, I think that it's trying to kind ofthey have to reach a whole completely new fanbase. And we already have that fanbase. So it's going to really be hard to kind of do that. But you know, everyone: They remade The Flintstones. Twice, I think."
[Willow Rosenberg] Alyson Hannigan - "That's a very big mistake in my opinion...I mean if Joss isn't involved, it's only the title." As for whether or not she would ever appear in it, she responded, "Not without Joss. Joss is the only reason that we would go back. I mean, it's ridiculous to think of that TV show without Joss. That's just silly to me. And all the fans know that too, so I don't know what they're thinking."
[Rupert Giles] Anthony Head - "The notion of doing anything to do with Buffy without Joss Whedon's involvement is wrong. It was [Joss Whedon's] baby. He created it at the age of 19. He couldn't get the film made, no one would make it. He couldn't get arrested with it, then the Kuzuis picked it up and said, "All right, we'll make a movie. They said, Stick with us, we'll show you how to do it, but they changed the tone of it. It became more camp, slightly schlocky humor." [Then the television series.] "Around that time, people started to get the idea of introducing wit, real sardonic humor into horror, so that it ceased to be the campy thing that was everyone was used to up to this point. He could make much, much stronger points, he could go into the underbelly of it. Joss could turn the audience on a dime. The classic, brilliant stroke of having a genius episode, a really funny episode, and then at the end of it, Buffy walks in and her mother's dead on the sofa. Stuff like that really, really screws with your mind, that's Joss Whedon." As for whether or not she would ever appear in it, he responded, "Maybe Kaz will approach Joss, and Joss will say, All right, let's work together again, but Buffy without Joss wouldnt make sense to me."
[Dawn Summers] Michelle Trachtenberg - "There was a Buffy movie, that's what started it all. We had an amazing seven-year run, and at the end Buffy, the universe ended. There's not really anywhere to go."
