Was a big fan of the live action movie actually. Yes some of the changes are a bit jarring at first, but to me they made sense. It was hard enough compressing an entire tv series into two hours without having an entire new series of characters (i.e. The Gamalons) to introduce and give any screen time. And I'm not sure that painting a bunch of guys blue would really work live.
Wouldn't surprise me if they toned down Analyzers antics just a bit. I'm sure they don't want to completely turn off female fans.
Same reason they're adding at least one more female to the main cast.
IIRC, when Yamato was first released, it started off its life as a series and then was later cut down to a 130 minute theatrical release after its popularity was determined. They can do it again.
