Finally, Joss Whedon fans have a premiere date for his highly anticipated series of web shorts, “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog.” Whedon unveiled the release plans for the supervillian musical in an open letter to fans:
ONE WEEK ONLY! AN INTERNET MINISERIES EVENT!
“Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” will be streamed, LIVE (that part’s not true), FREE (sadly, that part is) right on Drhorrible.com, in mid-July. Specifically:
ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.
ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.
ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.
All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)
Whedon goes on to say that the series will be made available for download for a small fee once all three parts have been published, and there are also plans in the works to release the series on DVD. More details will be unveiled at Comic-con later this month.
