Speaking to Assignment X about his career in general, Avengers director and Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon revealed that he still finds the rejection of the 2002 animated series “incomprehensible”
“We got to do almost everything we wanted to do,” said Whedon. “The only thing we didn’t get to do is an animated version, which was a delight for us because the writers themselves were working on it. We wrote seven scripts … it was ‘what could we not do [on the regular series].’ They were really fun to write. We could not sell the show. We could not sell an animated Buffy, which I still find incomprehensible.
You and me both, buddy.
