Great news for Joss Whedon fans in Sydney – not only can you see him at the Opera House exactly a month from now on August 29, but you can actually party with him afterwards, and have a chat about – well, whatever pops up, really. Perhaps the plot for Firefly Season Two? The Avengers? Why not! It’s up to you.

In this exclusive Sydney appearance, auteur Joss Whedon will talk about his ongoing love affair with the popular, the ways in which storytelling changes – and the ways it stays the same. Topics for discussion include outsider heroes, strong women and the uses and abuses of power.

Joss will also discuss the creative ways in which he has played these out in a variety of media forms: in films from Toy Story to the forthcoming The Avengers, in TV series from Buffy through Firefly to Glee, and across a vast range of comics.

For those of you who aren’t quite sure who Joss is, his credits include Titan A.E., Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Speed, Alien Resurrection and Disney’s box-office smash Toy Story for which he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay.
