AKA [[ItsNotPornItsAnIndex Fan-gasm]].

So they're finally making TheMovie of your favorite [[CashCowFranchise franchise]] (probably from TheEighties). And you hate it. They're doing the casting wrong, they have the wrong director, they're [[DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER ruining your childhood]] and so on.

And then they bring out the one thing that makes you go, "''Holy crap, this is going to be awesome.''"

The reasons for this can vary depending on the individual production and the individual fan. It seems that the most common instance of this happening is getting someone involved with the original to come back either in a major role or at least give their approval of the new direction. Other instances can be an actor or director proving themselves as a PromotedFanboy, a demonstration of costumes or set design or a petition for a certain actor/actress and ''actually'' get them.
As a side note, this is a term describing a reaction. In a surprising inversion of SturgeonsLaw, most of the time this is a very good omen as to the quality of the production. But there are always those productions that screw it up even after such a moment. That is not this trope; see TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot, OneSceneWonder and AdaptationDecay for more on that.

A BigYes, a {{Squee}}, and/or something similar will be shouted by fans when these moments occur. Across the internet, [[MemeticMutation memes]] such as the "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/reaction-guys-gaijin-4koma#.TfEWJUdHrTA Reaction Guys / Gaijin 4Koma]]" or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3ALwKeSEYs M. Bisonís]] BigYes from ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'' are sometimes used to convey these reactions.

Contrast with TaintedByThePreview and DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER. Related to PanderingToTheBase, although that doesn't always get this result.

Not to be confused with AndThereWasMuchRejoicing, unless a [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] is [[TakeThatScrappy involved]].
