Redirect The Same But Cooler.

Don't worry You Are Not Alone!

So there happens to be an idea or a concept that isn't very popular or is considered of bad quality. In fact it may have been bad received or it may have had a very specific and/or small fan-base.Most people outside this limited fanbase either don't care for this concept or simply would have avoided it because they consider it of bad quality.

Then that very same idea is reinterpreted with more succes. Maybe the author accepted the initial criticism or a new author wants improve and rework this concept to make it cooler and more appealing. Thanks to this the quality of this idea is improved so much that this concept gains a lot of new appeal and critical approval it never had before.Even gaining more fans than it's unital Target Audience.New fans that wouldn't have cared of the initial concept otherwise.

Difffers from Retool in the objetive. While a Re Tool seeks to change anything including the essence of the work and even differing from the initial concep in order to be more appealingt. This Sub Trtrope is only about different interpretations of the initial idea, that seek to expand without channging the essence of the work.Therefore In-Name-Only examples wouldn't apply here.

Examples

Anime

  • (YMMV) while a cult classic, many think Neon Genesis Evangelion could be slow at times, the comes Rebuild of evangelion, shortening the series, upgraded graphics, extra character, an Reimainatig the angels design and Habilities (I'M LOOKING AT YOU RAMIEL!!!)

Films

  • Before The Iron Man films and dwoney jr. Besides comic book fans few people actually cared for him as a character. Now thanks to the films he has gained popularity comparable to spiderman even becoming a predominant part of marvel's mainstream appeal

Western Animation

    The Trooper Namer, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, the original series (and the G 3.5) were considered as "lame girl's cartoons", then enters Lauren Faust for the G4. The results: a fountain of memes, way Better than it sounds with a Huge Periphery Demographic an tons of fanart

    ^^^For the record, didn't actually add that Damr1990 did, just fixed it. Not that I think it matters much.

    ^nope retool is changing anything of the original premise including In Name Only examples. This is the same premise with a diferent interpretation. Star trek 2 wouldn't fit here because it is the same premise (and it was done well) but the reboot would.

    it could be a sub trope tough (in this one the essence isn't changed) while in retool the essence my be different.

    How do you define "premise" and "interpretation"?
  • May 27, 2011
    Unknown Troper
    Sure
    • Premise is the essence of the work. The basic elements that can't be changed without betraying itself.For example batman as long as a dude called Bruce Wayne who is a powerless man that fights crime that guy is batman. No matter how campya tv( Adan westhm) or realistic he may bev(Th Dark Knight).While a rich girl that bakes pies ven if she were called "batamn" she would betray the premise.

    • Interpretation is alll the variation you cam give to a work without changing the premise. Superman Returns and dcau supermam for example, despiete being different they have the same premise

    Another vote that this is Re Boot Done Well. Even if there's some minscule difference, it's just going to be a Ridiculously Similar Trope.

    Ok took your vote in account. For the record it isn't reboot either. Becuase different interpretation doesn't exclude other versions like a reboot. For example comic book silver age-superboy and smallville. The latter didn't reboot the former. They are simply different interpretations.

    Okay then, third try. This is just... Done Well. Simply, (name of work) Done Well.

    It's not done well either actually the part I care is the reception. Done well is the most probable cause

    I tend to agree with the others. You might need to completely rework the description, because it looks almost exactly like Done Well and you're going to keep getting that reaction unless the initial description is much, much clearer.
