or instead of always creating new shows from scratch, do what they did with TMNT and He-Man, take the original show and just update/reboot it. again it could open the door for Cullen's return.
1) If they do a series based on the movies then they would have to share profits with Paramount, in other words, it's not in their best financial business.
2) It's been done already see http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Generation_2_(cartoon)
I'm guessing you never watched the G2 cartoon. It wasn't an update, it was the same cartoon with stupid cg scene transitions added in. If anything I would consider Animated to be close to the type of update Bouncy X is describing.
