    too much "canon" to follow

    Enough canon that ignoring it will confuse and anger fans

    No.

    Canon should be ignored in new series or reboots.

    And fans that get angry can grow up = P

    Quite disagree, in this case at least.

    A series with a devoted following as the primary audience needs to at least respect the basics of a very long, very profitable successful run.

    The evil dead remake tipped its hat to the original, as did nightmare on elm street, as did the ash vs evil dead. So did the Star Trek reboot, and the majority of remakes and reboots do. It doesn’t need to take the canon as law, but it needs to respect it

    As I often see people online doing.

    Like the new star trek people were enraged because Klingons were updated to look better with modern technology etc.

    Oh god no, I mean just respecting - gotta leave room for things that improve or make the story better, just respect for the source material and where it’s gone

    The Abrams Star Trek moved to an alternative reality based on future events that altered the past, but it respected the original series and gave it a new avenue for growth - Discovery covers a different time frame that hasn’t had much attention paid, between Enterprise and TOS - I kinda like the updated Klingons
