We’ve been looking forward to Firefly Online, the MMO set in Joss Whedon’s beloved Chinese cowboy universe, since it was announced in 2013. We haven’t seen much in the way of updates, but now we’re getting to hear them.
Firefly Online has released a series of videos called “The Cast Returns,” little snippets of dialogue delivered by the former crew of the Serenity. In addition, we also get a brief interview with the actors, who describe what it’s like working in and returning to the ‘Verse (Alan Tudyk’s response is particularly ... direct.)
The whole cast is present, save Gina Torres, aka Zoe Washburn, who mysteriously has not appeared. However, to compensate, we do get to re-meet Michael Fairman, who played the world’s meanest uncle, Niska.
We also meet Kelly Hu, the actress who voices a new character, Whisper Lo Pan. Hu calls her a “dragon lady.” We expect a character who might not be evil, but she probably ain’t no good, neither.
Check them out (and note that an extended interview can be found at the Firefly Online companion app, here). And let us know in the comments how much you want to find a crew, find a job and keep flying.
