The next reboots? I've heard rumors about these and they have a lot of backing.
1) Daniel Radcliffe himself is promoting this since the books and
movies came out so long ago. Plus Rowling can now put all the retconning
in that she's discussed or used elsewhere. Also, with the Fantastic
Beasts stalled and Cursed Child having so much hate, going to a new
Harry can make fans happy and bring in Gen Z (like other reboots).
) The Godfather series with Johnny Depp as Michael. Godfather
is a Boomer thing and Boomers are hated. (Sorry Gen X and Y. You're
lumped in there.) Don't forget, Gen Z outnumbers everyone, so you need
to focus on them. And Gen Alpha are the little ones growing up with
these reboots. So a new Godfather means getting that millennial and Gen
Z. Despite Depp being a Boomer, he'll get their money and he desperately
needs a big hit. So win-win.
3) Star Wars The Original Trilogy: another Boomer thing. Plus Lucas'
fans and actors - other than Hamill - have turned on him. Add to it that
Luca's universe and Abrams' don't mesh, and we've seen a ton of
retconning. So, like a Potter remake, the old can be replaced with the
retcon. Fans are demanding at least a movie where the actors are done in
CGI (like Rogue One Leia) and we see the changes in the characters.
With the movies ending soon and prequels like Kenobi and more Solo
movies canceled, going back and turning the original trilogy into the
Abrams universe will a big hit with fans. And Disney has more fodder for
4) The Golden Girls. Betty White said she'd do it and
that's a draw right there. Their merchandise is going through a big
boom, so they could take advantage. The problem would be the movement
against Boomers, but it might be enough to have the three generations
There's supposedly 121 reboots in the list
including Shrek, Akira, and American Werewolf. Obviously, the majority
will do well. For example, Abrams could do Harry Potter and more
reboots, so they'll be successful. It can mean Universal can redo
Wizarding World too with the new rebooted version of that universe. Like
Disney and its properties going into the parks.
Yes, a minority will complain. I did with Trek and Wars, but it's a minority.
Google your favorites and see if they're in the list. It's interesting to see who is redoing what parts.
