Petition Background (Preamble):

Xena Warrior Princess was a supernatural adventure fantasy series that ran from 1995-2001. The story followed Xena (played by Lucy Lawless), a princess and mighty warrior in a quest to seek redemption for her past sins as a warlord by using her formidable fighting skills to help people. A naive farm girl, Gabrielle (played by Renee O'Connor) joined Xena on her journeys and became her greatest ally in their quest to fight for the "greater good".

Xena was a breakout syndication hit that aired in more than 108 countries and continues to do so. Consider the following for Xena Warrior Princess:

*The Official Xena Fan Con just had their 19th ANNUAL convention. There's also an annual fan-sposonsored Xena con in Paris, and a new one scheduled for 2015 in New Zealand.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on the parties mentioned above: To make a live-action Xena Warrior Princess Movie with Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor. The magic of this show stemmed from Lucy & Renee's performances and why fans are vested in their return.

Xena was on tv over twice as long as Wonder Woman and beat Hercules in the ratings, yet there are currently multiple movie projects for those and NONE for Xena. There's also a new Tarzan movie coming, a 5th sequel of Pirates of The Carribean, a new Conan The Barbarian movie with 66yo Arnold Schwarzenegger, another Thor movie, a new 300 movie, even an Antman movie - while one of the greatest female characters of all time is being completely overlooked!

Chalked with elements for a great movie, Xena offers adventure, epic fight scenes, flawed relatable characters, witty dialog, formidable villains, great story-telling and the beautiful scenery of New Zealand. All brought to life through the great acting of the original cast.

We welcome a movie or even a mini-series for Xena, as long as it is with Lucy & Renee. We cannot imagine any other producers in the world doing justice to this movie more than the original producers, Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi.

Imagine bringing back a hero that was killed in one the most viscious ways possible - a hero that fans and ALL of pop culture knows about. How are they going to bring her back? What adventures will she take on next? That would make it one of the most talked about movies of the year! Audiences are ready for the return of kick-butt female icons.

Please come to terms to make this movie. Take our money! Where there is a fanbase, there is a creative solution. We are behind it and the cast who made it leap into our hearts, 100%.
