Really Unimportant Rant...
The same is what they did with the original Star Trek series: a new James T. Kirk, a new Bones, Spock, Scotty and all that... And now suddenly Spock's home world - Vulcan - is destroyed by some Romulan, which we *know* never happened in the original series.
All that crap started a few years ago, and I'm *still* not over it. So I can understand your pain, Jones. Really, I know what you feel, and I'm sorry that you have to go through this too.
*hugz* - BO -
And i'm with you 100%, BO!! What they've done to Star Trek infuriates me! "hey, Trek fans? Remember those years and years you spent investing in the Star Trek Universe? Well... None of it happened. We're rewriting it for a cooler generation."
Thanks for the great big GFYS, Hollywood /Disney.
So then I looked up the original trailer.
Well. It's a completely different movie. The original seems comedic, the remake seems serious. The original Pete doesn't even seem to be feral. Different plot. Different movie.
They should've just named it something else and said it was inspired by "Pete's Dragon".
But oh well at least you can still watch and enjoy the original movie. Pretend the remake never happened. Y'know block it from your memory like I tend to do with series finale episodes of my fave TV shows.
