While watching the Nostalgia Critic's review of the Nicolas Cage Sorcerer's Apprentice remake, I decided to look up and find out how this mess came to be. Then I found this quote from the director back from when the film came out.
Honestly, this is insulting.
If you take something as classic and loved as a Disney cartoon or movie, and attempt to update or modernize it, you make it more dated and forgettable. Giving it edge, you lose the point of the original.
The originals can always be enjoyed by the "current audience". Whereas, a crappy reboot will be forgotten 5 minutes after it hits theaters.
If you're gonna update something classic and loved by millions, it has to be for a good reason. The reasons stated here are not good reasons.
