New Xena Movie - Not the Xena Movie You Had In Mind

ImageWe all want a Xena movie so we can see how Xena got herself out of that whole dying thang at the end of A Friend In Need back in 2001.

Alas the time for a Xena Movie has come and gone - well and truly. There are fans who have Xena Movie campaign going and petitions to TPTB and would love to see Lucy and Renee reprise their iconic roles but the truth is, it's not going to happen.

A REAL Xena movie starring Lucy Lawless as Xena and Renee O'Connor as Gabrielle will NEVER happen. Unless something extraordinary happens in Hollywood, we will never see it. We may see a Xena movie with a 20 something unknown actress as Xena and a 20 something unknown as Gabrielle some time in the future. Not Lucy and Renee.

Today comes the news that can only be put under "be careful what you wish for, you might get it" listing.

- A Xena Movie is being planned.
- They want a Lucy Lawless lookalike.
- They would want a Renee O'Connor lookalike

good news (somewhat) so far right? Wrong.

- It's a p0rn movie.

I've linked the press release on the AUSXIP facebook page if you REALLY want to read the press release.

There can only be one Xena and that is Lucy Lawless. There can only be one Gabrielle and that is Renee O'Connor NO ONE is going to ever replace Lucy and Renee. Unfortunately it will happen but AUSXIP won't be covering it. I'll stick with the originals and the best.

If you REALLY want to know how Xena got herself out of that whole FIN problem...head on over to the Subtext Virtual Season and see how it's resolved.

Renee's Two Day Photo Op at 2012 Xena Convention


The following has been posted on the official 2012 Xena Convention page on Creation Entertainment. We all know that Renee likes to add something special to photo ops (dressing up in various Gabrielle costumes). It seems the 2012 Xena Con will feature her in TWO outfits.

Personally I'm hoping my favourite Gabrielle outfit makes it's return: BGSB and the brown skirt with her original staff.

Check out the notice below

RENEE O'CONNOR: $70 (SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, Renee has graciously agreed to wear a different super-cool outfit each day. It is always a surprise to see what she has planned for her many fans!).

Note that you are free to use your Renee photo op tickets either day you choose.
