WATCH: The cast of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer reunite for the show’s 20th Anniversary

March 29th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Twenty years! Buffy the Vampire Slayer first appeared twenty years ago! Man, do we feel old!

And to mark the occasion, EW has gathered the whole gang together for this week’s issue (pictured above and video below) to look back at the legacy of the show: “It’s the ultimate metaphor: horrors of adolescence manifesting through these actual monsters,” said Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar

David Boreanaz, Angel, added: “When you’re going through a really horrible part of your life, like your teenage years, you feel alone. And Buffy was a way to tell the audience you’re not alone.”

Emma Caulfield, who played later addition to the cast, Anya, continued: “It just touched on really basic human emotions, like a life blueprint. ‘I don’t have any friends. I feel isolated.’ Those sort of core human emotions.”

Saying the shoot was like a High School Reunion, creator Joss Whedon said of the show: “The most important thing to me is that I have had people come up to me and say the show made me feel different about what they could be, about what they could do, about how they respond to problems, about being a female leader.

“People getting strength from my own little terrors is… There is no better legacy than that.”

The new issue of EW  is out this Friday and we’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for it.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
