Firefly -Will Firefly Take Flight in a New Special Edition Release? 'Kaylee' Says So!
Cast member says DVDs are on the way

Wow, we got a terrific e-mail from reader John Kelly, who we're grateful to for sending us the tip. He points us to a YouTube video (embedded below) that features Firefly's "Kaylee," Jewel Staite (currently seen on Stargate: Atlantis), answering questions at the "Supanova" Convention held last weekend (March 29-30) in Melbourne, Australia. She's talking about the possibility of whether a new story could ever be done for Firefly, picking up after the events of the feature film Serenity. She says that she thinks the door is still open to it, and establishes that "if they called I would be there in a heartbeat." She points out that there is still a lot of demand for the show, and that the studio recognizes it. In the process she dropped this bombshell:
"I just heard that they're re-releasing Firefly, a special edition of Firefly in a box set. They actually asked me if I was able to come down to L.A. and do a commentary in the Spring at some point. So I think that would be fun."
Nice! The existing Firefly DVD set continues to be a good seller, and has a good number of extras. But that wouldn't stop many fans, myself included, from double-dipping on a special edition release if it had enough new goodies on it, and at the right price.
Here's a look at what Staite says; listen for yourself:
