Back in the day, when I was a freshman in college, I remember certain weeknights when the girls at the dorm would congregate around the what was then considered a humongous TV. Some would camp out in the den to ensure that they got dibs on the channel that showed Xena. If they were some minutes late, the guys would certainly find another show to watch.
I have fond memories of Xena and the bonding that show brought to young, idealistic women. Of course, Lucy Lawless had something to do with that as well.
As such, when I got wind of the Xena Movie Campaign, I immediately knew I would join the fray. So here’s what’s going on:
Are you a fan of the series Xena: Warrior Princess? Would you LOVE to see Xena and her Battling Bard Gabrielle grace our screens once again in a long-awaited Xena movie!? Unhappy with the way the series ended? Desperate to resurrect our hero and reunite her with Gabrielle? Or just eager to see some serious girl-power and butt-kicking make a comeback in the 21sr Century?! Then please join us in our quest to convince NBC Universal of a fact Xenites across the world already know: that a Xena movie starring the one and only Xena and Gabrielle, the beautiful and talented Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor, would not only be a hit, but a knockout!
More than a decade may have passed since the airing of Xena, but I am more than 100% sure that Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor can still have a go at it and make our jaws drop.
The Xena Movie Campaign was started last year, but obviously, it still needs the support of Xenites. (To be honest, I am not too keen on the label, although I adore Xena.) So here’s what you can do if you loved the TV series and would love to see the movie turn to reality.
- Check out the Xena Movie Campaign on Facebook.
- Visit the official web site of the group to learn more.
- Add to the noise and spread the word.
Here’s something to refresh your memory in case you need it.
Lucy Lawless is gone from Spartacus, so it’s about time we see her in action again, isn’t it?
