New new news on the Poltergeist remake – it’s not a remake! Well, that changes things! The story is clearly similar, but this, in fact, is a new family that has moved into a house where the Freelings once lived. According to new information, at some point in the movie they discover some of the stuff from the kids’ room from the original movie, including the Star Wars bed sheets and a black and white TV.
So this is a sequel, not a remake, and while they are calling it a reboot, it’s supposed to be set in the same universe, and connected to the original.
I’m a lot more ok with this now!
