As opposed to producers who think the way to move forward is to make a prequel and completely revise a beloved icon?
Some people are so stuck in the past that they don't want to move forward.
I just think some people are afraid of change and therefore see it as a bad thing. Our beloved icon still exists in its original format and nothing that is done now or in the future will change that.
All the new creative team is trying to do is to draw in a new and bigger audience by using established characters which the general movie going public are already aware of. If they tell a good story then I see nothing wrong with that. So what if some of the details change? If it's a compelling story then I want to see it!
