So, with all the Disney remakes doing well.

More or less... Would you accept a "Land Before Time" remake if they could do it well? I know I made a topic about this a long time ago where I was much, much more cynical about it, but its 2019 now, and... LBT is basically history, and I am not okay with that.

"Doing well", as in financially? If so, well, I still would be very hesitant about the prospect of a remake/reboot happening. These movies may have made a profit, but I hear so many divided reactions from the fandom. Plus, I've seen some footage if these remakes and they don't look very good compared to the originals. I don't just want an LBT remake to make a profit; I want it to please a healthy portion of the fanbase. If a majority of the fanbase is pleased, then I'm bound to be pleased as well.

My only wish is to have the best and brightest in Hollywood behind the LBT remake if it ever happens. What "best and brightest" means, I don't have the most concrete clue.

A remake would require dinomania, and despite Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the upcoming Dominion, interest has ebbed. Kids will always love dinisaurs, but you need dino fever to motivate Universal to dare and remake this classic. I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

Well, you can mark me down as someone who would definitely NOT want a remake. :anger That would be the final nail in the coffin of the classic LBT movies we all know and love, and it probably would let us down. I mean, name one remake of anything that has done fans of the original whatever-it-was justice. Those Disney remakes are getting really old in my opinion...Beauty and the Beast is the only one I've been fond of much (and the only one that's gotten a very good fan reception in general, if I recall correctly).
Going through my fanfics to make sure I don't want to change anything before I post. (This might take a while.)

I wouldn't mind a remake as long Anndi McAfee and Aria Curzon reprise their roles because I've gotten used to their voices.

I posted this a while ago in a different thread, but I'll say it again here.

A remake actually makes more sense to me at this point. I sort of feel they've taken it as far as they can with simply making more sequels. A remake could be a good chance to put a fresh new spin on things. The rebooted Planet of the Apes series is proof that, sometimes, starting over is the best way to breathe new life into a franchise. I don't normally feel that way with franchises; usually I prefer a traditional sequel that keeps the same storyline going, rather than hitting the reset button. But with Land Before Time, a 15th film would probably just be another lighthearted musical (which I'd still watch anyway). Whereas the idea of a remake is more interesting to me because then I wonder, how would they take the original film and approach it from a different angle?

I'm not worried about them "ruining" the original Land Before Time, in the sense that it simply couldn't happen for me. I love the original film, and regardless of anything else that happens, I can always go back and watch the original again.

I would welcome a second season of the TV series, however.

It's funny to think how Disney's remake of The Lion King actually drew so much attention to the probably forgotten and overall secluded 1965 anime series of Kimba The White Lion. It was so inexcusable for Disney to file a cease and desist against Tezuka Productions when they aired the Jungle Emperor Leo movie in 1997, three years after the release of The Lion King. So I guess it's kinda payback after so many years of stealing their attention and claiming to be "original", but technically no justice was ever served.

I guess I'd just be afraid they'd try too hard to modernize things and mess it up...

I DO agree that a second TV series season would be cool, though!
