When something is that much of a classic (i.e. it's near-perfect already), I just wish they wouldn't mess with it.

In reading posts from Straczynski, I believe I've heard the word "prequel" associated with this project. I could be mistaken, though.

The linked article says the first of the three movies will be a prequel, I believe.
