    Default Sequels and Remakes or new stuff?

    Okay you may have noticed that a lot coming out these days are sequels and remakes of popular cartoons. Scooby has been going for fifty+ years. They keep remaking Disney movies and cartoons. How many versions of Ben 10 are there? Or Power Puff Girls? Spin Offs too... still can't believe Elmya was the one who made it off Tiny Toons.

    So is this a good thing? Or should they focus instead on making original stuff like when Moana came out?

    Honestly I barely even watch the Disney movies any more. Listening to Will Smith sing "Never had a friend like me" I just kept hearing the differences from the Robin Williams version. Melificent was great because they did all new stuff. My Little Pony:FIM was great, but it was it's own thing not too based on the original 80's show. Transformers Animated seemed more like Gargoyles...




    I just really wish they would do more original things. New ideas now based on something they did thirty years ago because the adults feel nostalgic and the kids have no idea who Popey and Woody Woodpecker are.


    Would I enjoy seeing Jessica Rabbit take over Eddie Valient's detective agency? Or a Live action Spider-girl TV series on FOX? YES! But I'd like that sort of thing to be the exception rather than the norm. I'd rather see new stuff. Unexpected. Rather than just continuations and do overs of things someone else came out with.


    How about you?

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I would be ok with sequels if the majority, in my opinion, didn't completely grozit on the originals. These days I prefer original content.

    What do you think of this?



    Straight to DVD.

    Some anime retreads I reviewed:

    Ultraman, actually should be called Son of Ultraman: https://www.animeforum.com/showthrea...Ultraman-(2019)

    Devilman Crybaby is a redo of an earlier anime called Devilman, though I never saw the original: https://www.animeforum.com/showthrea...-Crybaby-(2018)


    The first James Bond.
    Believe it or not.

    I love remakes. I can't wait to make it, so my body of work (yes, even my own anime) can be reinterpreted in some way, it's fun!!

    I prefer new ideas. Remakes are also good, but not when there are a whole bunch of them, and there are practically no new ideas. To be honest, I haven't watched new versions of old cartoons for many years. I prefer to revisit an old cartoon with simple animation that evokes memories of my childhood.

    Agreed. They need to stop with the live action Disney remakes too. Especially the ones where they just have to animate talking animals anyway

    Cool that you remembered. I like films in which a character is drawn. The last such movie I saw was Paddington. The film is old, I watched it partially before, but just recently I watched it completely.
