Reboots, Reimaginings, and Relaunches

Thursday Aug 16   03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (1 hour)
Many franchises have been rebooted or reimagined. When does this change to “bait and switch” marketing or go so far from the concept of the original that it offends those who loved the original? Examples of controversial reboots include Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek Discovery, and Ghost Busters. When does the new version become the definitive version? STTNG, the Jackson LOTR movies and Westworld come to mind. Does the success or criticism of these relaunches reflect attitudes and issues in the broader society?
