Trailer for animated 'Firefly' fan project

Artist Stephen Byrne has put together a teaser trailer for a Firefly animated series we really, really wish existed. The art looks great, and he does an awesome job of getting the look of the world and the characters just right. All your favorites are here, and there’s even a heartbreaking little cameo from Wash (R.I.P.). Byrne has been teasing looks at his little art project the past few years, but this is by far the most complete look he’s offered up yet.
It’s the longest of long shots, but who knows? It seems like nothing is truly dead these days, and Netflix has found some surprise success with its new animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender. Could an animated continuation be our best remaining shot for more Firefly adventures? Heck, maybe somebody can even dig that old Buffy the Vampire Slayer animated series off the shelf?
