I like it when a sequel is made 30 years later that is a reboot but we get to see the original actors as olds

The only good bit about the Emily Blunt Mary Poppins retread was that Dick van Dyke appeared at the end to play the ancient bank manager, a role he also played in the original but using heavy prosthetics.
No way does that exist. Clearly just a tax avoidance vehicle.
It actually fits your bill of “previously unmentioned relative shows up” (John Rhys-Davies as Aladdin’s father)
Big fan of the “we thought up a title so good we have to make it” model. Especially if it then never gets made. The Seriously Dude!, Where’s My Car? model.
