* Robin Hardy, director of the original 1973 version of ''Film/TheWickerMan'', did not like the 2006 remake. On a more subtle note, Creator/ChristopherLee was also quite surprised about it and thought of it as a different film altogether rather than a remake.

''This is usually limited to works that were adapted while the creator(s) of the original was still alive. While we would like to think that some posthumous adaptations have the creator(s) rolling in their graves, we'll never know for sure. However, there have been some cases where family members/estates of the deceased creator(s) have taken this stance against an adaptation if they own the rights of the work. It's also worth noting that several examples here, while disliked by the creator(s), were very well received by critics and fans so this does not automatically mean [[TropesAreNotBad the result of the adaptation was terrible]].''

* ''Series/FreshOffTheBoat'' faced this from Eddie Huang, the writer of the memoir that it is based on. Shortly after the series premiere, Huang criticized the show for sanitizing his life and veering from the actual events. He even left his part as the narrator of the show. His feelings have since mellowed about the show, although he still rules out any chance of returning, he praises the show for being a positive portrayal of Asian-Americans.

* David Yost and Walter Emmanuel Jones, who played the original Blue and Black Rangers respectively, were overall [[http://heroichollywood.com/former-power-rangers-disappointed-reboot/ not too thrilled about]] ''Film/PowerRangers2017''. Jones cited the lack of the famous "[[DanceBattler hip-hop-kido]]" martial arts style his Zack employed on the original series, while Yost was unimpressed with the morphing sequence (particularly the "It's Morphin' Time!" call, which he called "lackadaisacal") and had various issues with the Megazord. Yost did, however, have [[ApprovalOfGod nothing but praise]] for R.J. Cyler's performance as his old character Billy, as well as the way the character was reimagined.

* Masami Tsuda despised what [[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]] did to the animated version of ''Manga/KareKano'' so much that she had it cancelled after one season. She wanted a more character and plot-driven story (and in fact, the manga becomes ''very'' dark as it goes on), but director Creator/HideakiAnno had inserted lots of screwball comedy to try for some balance, as he had just finished working on the rather dark and self-psychoanalytical ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (for reference, Anno suffers from chronic depression). Tsuda then got so upset that she demanded for Anno to be fired from the adaptation, at which point Anno straight-up quit, forcing [[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]] to abruptly end the anime [[GeckoEnding gecko-style]].

* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' co-creator Peter Laird has declared that ''Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNexMutation'' does not exist as far as he's concerned, and that goes double for [[TheScrappy Venus de Milo]]. Kevin Eastman on the other hand likes Venus and hopes that she makes a comeback one day.

* Rev. Wilbert and Christopher Awdry were at first supportive of ''Literature/TheRailwaySeries'' adaptation ''ThomasTheTankEngine'', Wilbert even stating he thought the first two seasons were mostly decent renditions of his stories. However they came to dislike the increased creative liberties taken Season Three onwards, inventing new stories or retooling their own tremendously, as well as violating accuracies to railway code. Christopher Awdry also became annoyed with how the show effected his own writing of the novels, being mandated to rush in more Thomas focused stories.

** ''[[Film/VForVendetta V for Vendetta]]'': Moore specifically requested that his name be removed from the production after Joel Silver (the film's producer) lied about Moore's enthusiasm for the shooting script. This, and the rather poor quality of previous adaptations of ''Film/FromHell'' and ''[[Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen]]'', prompted his (in retrospect, possibly hasty) decision to have his name removed from any and all adaptations of works he has no ownership of, and his pseudo-royalties distributed amongst the relevant artists. Hence, he has received no money from the filmmakers behind ''V for Vendetta'', ''Film/{{Constantine}}'', or the ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' movie.

Also, since the ''Watchmen'' film, adaptations of Moore's works were credited to the co-creators (e.g., the adaptations of ''Watchmen'' and ''Batman: The Killing Joke'' were credited to Dave Gibbons and Brian Bolland, respectively).
