Browncoats will never give up hope that Firefly will make a triumphant return, but there’s nothing at all on the horizon officially. Instead, we have this fantastic fan film, The Verse, created by the folks at Loot Crate. It’s technically not Firefly, but it’s about as close as we’re gonna get.
You may be familiar with Loot Crate as the monthly subscription service that delivers a box of geeky goodness to doorsteps every month. This month it’s a Galactic box full of Firefly-themed products, making this the shiniest month ever. That’s why they’ve given us this 16-minute film that was written by fans, for fans, and even has props produced by Quantum Mechanix. Clearly, this was a labor of love that took the combined effort of Browncoats from all corners.
The stars of the short talk and look like the cast of the show. Makes you wonder if they’re a bunch of Browncoats, too. That cast includes Ryan Caldwell, Jennifer Wenger, Zack Finfrock, Peter Weidman, Tybee Diskin, Alex Marshall-Brown, Ewan Chung, and Vic Mignogna. They’ll make you want to kick back and watch the show all over again.
See the film after the break.
