In 2005, there were a series of advanced screenings exclusively for fans of an unfinished Serenity. Before the film, a short introduction by Joss Whedon was played in which he thanked the fans. “It is, in an unprecedented sense, your movie. So, if it sucks, it's your fault.” This wasn’t the first or last time we heard this. Joss and the cast, throughout the production and to this day, have been very vocal about the role the fans had in getting a movie made out of their short lived tv show.
