Return of Reboot

I'm pretty sure everyone remembers the cartoon "Reboot" that aired from 1994-2001. Just in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, the show was about a guardian sprite named Bob and his friends that lived inside a computer world called Mainframe. Bob's job was to defend the Mainframe (and the User) from virus attacks. He was helped by Dot and her little brother Enzo. The baddies were, of course, Megabyte and Hexadecimal. It really was an awesome show and the plotlines got really dark toward the end of the series. Rainmaker, the company that currently owns the Reboot property, chose five undiscovered writers to work with the production team to prepare a pitch for a new Reboot storyline. They will be posted on the Zeroes 2 Heroes website on Thursday, July 26, which happens to be the first day of the San Diego Comic-Con International. When you visit the website, you'll be able to work with the production team to refine the ideas. Later, you'll be able to vote for your favorite pitch. From these pitches, we'll get a web-based comic then production will start on a trilogy of feature-length films.

I'm really excited to see where this goes. I loved Reboot back in the day and it would be really awesome if they got a great storyline to run with. I wonder if the "undiscovered writers" Rainmaker found know anything about the Reboot property. Are they going to be able to stay with how the characters were originally written? Are they going to start over at the beginning for the kids of this generation that haven't seen the original series? I hope they don't do anything to ruin the memories of the older Reboot fans.
