Poster for the film

Serenity is an upcoming film from Joss Whedon set in the universe of the cancelled Fox science fiction television series Firefly, several months after the episode "Objects in Space". The USA theatre release date is planned for September 30, 2005, and the UK release for October 7, 2005.

Jane Espenson, one of the writers of Buffy and Firefly, announced in June 2003 at a Buffy convention in England that Whedon was writing a script for a Firefly movie. Actors Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin confirmed this on the official Firefly forum, as did Whedon in several interviews. Universal Studios acquired the rights to Firefly.

On March 2, 2004, according to an article in Variety, the movie was officially greenlighted to enter production with a $40 million budget. Principal photography started on June 3, 2004. Joss Whedon said that the film would be released as Serenity, in order to differentiate it from the TV series. The 9 principal cast members from the television series (Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Gina Torres, Jewel Staite, Morena Baccarin, Nathan Fillion, Ron Glass, Sean Maher, and Summer Glau) all returned for the movie. On September 17, 2004 Joss Whedon announced on the official site that shooting had been completed.

Although critics of Firefly have been skeptical that a major motion picture based upon a short-lived series has a chance at success, fans of the series are hopeful that the film might lead to, if not a revival of the series, at least a film franchise. If Serenity is a success, it might also promote theatrical versions of other short-lived series.

The much-anticipated trailer for this film was released on April 26, 2005, as well as sneak previews of the unfinished film in 10 cities on May 5, 2005. A second screening, in twenty cities, was announced for May 26, 2005, causing some controversy when individual theatres began selling tickets before the official announcement and list of cities, leading some shows to be sold out before being announced.
