Okay - arguably a remake or reboot is inherently unadventurous or innovative. In that regard I cannot praise Disney for originality there.
I *do* applaud them for being willing to stick their necks out from under the safety blanket of Star Wars projects (!) to try other things... maybe they appreciate some immense talent that is helming each project. Maybe they have faith in some artists.
Gimme a break... there is nothing risky about Lone Ranger, Tron, or Black Hole. They are all a "brand", though a smaller one than Star Wars. Risky would actually be doing something that isn't familiar, a brand, which really is what the best moments of art is all about.
