favourite tropes + SETTING UPDATE

Adaptations of old stories will frequently move them closer to the production in time and/or space, even if the original is only a couple of decades old.

Distinct from Recycled IN SPACE in that the purpose is to make the story more familiar and accessible, whereas that trope is often based around transplanting a story into a less familiar setting. Also, by its nature, a Setting Update is typically made long after the original, whereas a Recycled Premise is usually a Me Too made to cash in on hot demand. Sometimes, especially with the more radical changes, it can be a genuinely clever analogy.

I want Regina to push Robin away but he’ll still come back to her anyway for several reasons. But mainly so haters can’t say Regina was the one to break up Robin’s family. They can hate Robin, say Regina deserves someone like him. Because all they’ll see is a man that turned his back on the idea…
