Add/Remove/Change a letter to a work's title:

I did a topic like this a while ago for video games, and it was mildly popular for at least a little while. Now, I'd like to see how a reboot of the game will do if works from all media are allowed. Movies, shows, games, books, webcomics, it doesn't matter!

The rules are simple: take a work's title, and either add, remove, or change a single letter to make it into something else, and write a brief synopsis about the new title. For example, let's take Star Wars, since it's appeared on just about every medium ever conceived at some point:

Add a letter: Star Warts — Luke travels to Dagobah and licks some toads on a dare.

Remove a letter: Tar Wars — A reinvisioning of the entire saga where the plot development trudges on as slowly as the middle of Episode II, as though it were stuck in tar.

Change a letter: Star Bars — So these two droids, a moisture farmer, and a jedi master walk into a cantina...

Now make your own. And if you have to add/change/drop more than one letter it had better be funny!

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
