Maybe if they’re gonna reshoot this how about make it a completely new original story and remove the PPG names and all references to the show/franchise and rename it. Some story about some adults that were young superheroes against their will and regret living it. That could work if it wasn’t PPG. Just do it like Watchmen which was meant to use existing IPs like Capt Atom, Blue Beetle, The Question etc but got rewritten into a new story.
I think that sounds way to similar to the Umbrella academy.

I think they’re saying that whatever good was left in the cartoon McCraken originally made has now been utterly wiped out by the live action show, since the live action version claims that the cartoon was a “safe sanitized and whitewashed version of their actual lives made to sell the brand” or whatever, essentially shitting all over the original in order to be “deep” and “realistic”.
A really stupid part of the script(and isn’t that saying something) is that apparently the little girl with the mind control worms named then all after member of Trump’s Cabinet.

There is literally an “Orange Man Bad” joke written in.
This is the funny, though dangerous, part about “woke ideology” permeating onto today’s entertainment. Using cartoon girls as a live action idea to now chastise, lecture and demean the original audience of people who watched the cartoon (who used to be kids themselves, by the way) is a slap to the face to all people who used to love watching cartoons like PPG to both entertain and relax from all of the real life current events that are taking place in today’s society,

The fact that they even use little (fictional) kids as shields to continue getting away with this behavior is about as disgusting as social media users forcing themselves to virtue signal about real life politics needing to be injected into the show in the first place.

Oh no, a show based on a goofy cartoon being campy? How horrible.

Guess they need to shove more graphic gore and sex scenes into it.
What's the point of even doing this show if you can't pay homage to the cartoon and just shit and rape its characters

Also told my sister by the why. She said she will be sticking with the animated show. Honeslty she was quite horrified and dumb founded when I told her about this dumpsterfire.

Literally all they seem to care about is that this carries the name of a popular 90's cartoon show.

This is approaching Disney levels of 'slap a brand name on something that doesn't at all feel like the creators respect the original franchise and know why people liked it in the first place' and it's only going farther and farther downhill.

So all this means is they’re going to cut out the “jokes” but still keep all the overly dark “Professor is a horrible shit dad”, “cartoon whitewashed” bullshit.

Sigh….

"Slightly different approach but everything is going to be the same"

That literally means nothing in this context and at the same time...the script we saw IS SOMEHOW NOT THE BOTTOM OF THE FUCKING BARREL.

If you don't like the show, it is because you're a homophobic anti-semite.
