|Done the Impossible: The Fans' Tale of 'Firefly' and 'Serenity'|
|Directed by||Tony Hadlock
|Produced by||Tony Hadlock
|Running time||79 minutes|
Done the Impossible is a 2006 documentary fan film of the TV series Firefly. Its main focus is on the fans themselves, how they came to love the show and ultimately, played a part in getting the film Serenity made.
The title is taken from a line of dialogue, spoken by Malcolm Reynolds in the original pilot episode of Firefly, which referred to the Independents' achievement of (temporarily) holding Serenity Valley against the Alliance: "We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty."
Featuring Adam Baldwin as the host, the documentary includes Jewel Staite doing a voice-over, and has interviews with cast, crew and dozens of fans, including: Alan Tudyk, Christina Hendricks, Christopher Buchanan, Greg Edmonson, Jewel Staite, Joss Whedon, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Loni Peristere, Margaret Weis, Mary Parent, Morena Baccarin, Nathan Fillion, Orson Scott Card, Rafael Feldman, Ron Glass, Tim Minear, Tracy Hickman, and Yan Feldman.
IGN Reviewer Eric Goldman noted "It's fun to see the interviews and the joy the show has brought to many.... The extras are well done and informative, in some ways doing a much better job than the documentary of presenting facts about the series to a novice, who doesn't know a Companion from an Operative."
