We, the undersigned, call on NBCUniversal, Universal TV, and Renaissance Pictures:
To resolve the rights and 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. It HAS to include them in a pivotal way.
We want a Xena limited event such as a movie or mini-series with the original cast that leads-up to NBC's reboot. That way it is a win/win for all.
Male actors of all ages are reprising roles. Actresses are just as beloved by fans. Don't recast them, just write the story FOR them (i.e. Star Trek, upcoming Star Wars and Conan The Barbarian with 67yo Arnold Schwarzenegger). Times are changing. If 65yo Sigourney Weaver can reprise Alien, then Lucy, Renee and more of our original cast can reprise Xena! This fanbase deserves at least a straight-to-dvd or tv movie with them!
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 and Gabrielle take on? Audiences are ready for the return of kick-butt female icons. 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%.
