My sentiments exactly, thank you. When I read a classic novel, do I want the 
settings, slang and milieu updated? Leave great art alone.

Color me naïve, but when I go to see Puccini's La Boheme I want to see
Puccini's La Boheme the way Puccini imagined it would be performed.
(Okay maybe he didn't imagine 250 people on stage for the Café Momus
scene, but it clearly fulfills his intent.)

A Star Wars version of La Boheme should be called something else the
same way West Side Story is not called Romeo and Juliet.
