    No, I think a movie would be better instead.

    An animated series in definitly the way to go. I don't really care about the actors ages, but wouldn't it be better to get them together for some studio sessions- get some voice acting done. That way you don't have to worry about competing schedules.

    Hell, they could probably do Seasons 8, 9 and 10 (when it comes out) in no time. Just let Joss polish up some of the scripts and maybe add a scene or two, and you've got a pretty good continuation.

    Also I always thought that Angel: After The Fall would make a brilliant animated movie, because it's action-packed but also so self-contained. Plenty of stuff for the actors to work with. Maybe the could do a dry run with it- see how well it goes.

    Funnily enough a voice acting production is usually better when the VA's/Seiyuu's are present at the same time to play off eachother.

    Just watch some of the behind the scenes Voice Acting for the Legacy of Kain Vampire Game Franchise!

    Some of the BEST Voice Acting I have ever heard in my Life!

    Check them out!

    Simon Templeman as Kain

    Michael Bell as Raziel

    Renee Auberjonois as Janos Audron

    The Late Tony Jay as the Elder God

    I vote "delete a scene or two". For example, wrapping the second half of S8 in a 20-second flashback or something.

    Also, animated series may be more and more inexpensive those days. But Buffy heavily relies on facial expressions if they want to inherit the spirit of the show. This places a hard bar on the team. No way many parts of the job can be outsourced to North Korea/China like most Japanese animes to cut cost.

    Who would be a part of the main cast? Many characters popped in and out. I think the lineup would be:

    Sarah Michelle Gellar
    Nicholas Brendon
    Michelle Trachtenberg
    Tom Lenk
    Iyari Limon
    Eliza Dushku
    with Alyson Hannigan
    and Anthony Stewart Head

    - Joss himself mentioned that if an eighth season had been done Tom Lenk would've been a main cast member.
    - James Marsters and David Boreanaz would be special guest stars, as they only appear in the final stretch, similar to ASH and ED in Season Seven.

    Don't forget Satsu/the whole Japanese cast, and Melaka/the whole Frayverse cast.

    The budget will put Avatar to shame...

    Well, considering how they were never on the show before, they'd probably start off as recurring guest stars.

    This is the closest I could find to how (I think) the opening credits of S8 would look. All that's missing is Tony Head:

     
    VisionBoy: Wow, those are really good. Far more realistic than many of the ones I've seen.

    A television version of S8 would take place all over the world, incurring huge expenses for the few people who would watch. I concur with the @thetopher, an animated series might be a more viable program.
