You know, I can sit here and tell you how wrong this is in comparison to the show despite not being a fan of it, but I won't, there really isn't a point because this looks like it would've been trash even if that wasn't the case. I honestly am fine with changing up things in adaptations because it can lead to interesting, sometimes better storytelling, but there's a limit for these things, going too far likely results in poison or something that feels like it'd be best as a one-off thing not the main representative of the series. To illustrate my thoughts on this in simpler terms, I'm fair game for a "redesign" of any property, but it has to still have semblance of said property for me to consider it at the least a decent one, 98 Godzilla bares no semblance to the Godzilla I love, while the story and characters here remind me (and the fans) of so little that went on in the show that it hardly feels like an adaptation. Should this be a hit I will start pitching my live-action Wallace & Gromit film, which centers around a man who builds art out of junk, while trying to find a job that won't fire him for making his service dog do the job for him, which will at least carry the names of the characters so it's totally an adaptation. Jem & The Holograms is out this October, whether you want it or not.
P.S. Did Universal think remaking Josie & The PussyCats was a good idea financially?
