Yeah, I didn't really see STiD as a remake of WOK but as more of a different story featuring a new version of an old villain.
Is it a remake? No. Does it lift some elements from TWOK? Yes.

But it was thirty-two years between the two movies. The audience this movie was aimed at isn't obsessive-compulsive where Star Trek is concerned. The audience this movie was aimed at likely hadn't seen TWOK fifty or a hundred times over the last thirty years, the audience doesn't know TWOK backwards and forwards the way we do.

I'm betting there was a good portion of ticket buyers who had never seen TWOK at all.
