Yeah, I agree that any other Serenity movie would have to be a prequel. I suppose it could be possible to continue forward from there, but, for all the reasons given above, I just couldn't see it working nearly as well. And, of course, without Wash, it wouldn't quite feel right.

Oh, but I will say that I think Wash dying was the right way to go, but only if you're deliberately planning on not making a sequel. The death of a beloved character made me honestly doubt that the other characters would make it, and Wash's death is the one that closes and completes stories, for all the reasons you listed above. It doesn't lead to any new questions about character development, but if you want to finish a setting's story, that's not what you want, is it?

Plus, the funny guy always dies, right?

That said, I saw all of those folks in line for their first viewing of Serenity, dressed as their favorite characters, and I couldn't help but feel a pang of sorrow for the ones who were wearing hawaiian shirts. I wore my black hawaiian shirt the next day in mourning.

heh, no one was dressed up by the time I got there, even on opening night. The theater wasn't even packed.

Yeah, i see your points, and I think it was a fine decision to make. I was just saying the choice that i would have made, had I written it.

I have a perfect counterpoint to this: The Death of Spock in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn

Well, I would argue that Star Trek III was an awful idea, and so Spock's death was a fine ending point.
