RE:It's A Wonderful Life sequel a no go

I had actually heard about it I think before November 21st. from another Christmas discussion group that I belong to, and we were all talking about how it has been way too long for a sequel, and obviously by now, the Bailey Brother's Building and Loan would have either failed or just closed up with the advent of all the new banks and credit unions and so on, so that wouldn't even come into play in the sequel.
But we also talked a lot about how it would ruin this great Christmas Classic. Some movies don't need a sequel or even a remake, like they did with Marlo Thomas back I believe in the late 1970's or early 1980's where the role was reversed, and she was the one who thought the world would be better off if she had never been born. I don't really remember anything about it as I only saw it once when it first aired on television and I have never seen it again.
But I had been following this developing story for a while and that Paramount had gotten the Copyright and was going in full force against the company that was going to do the sequel.
Even if they tried to do a remake, it would ruin the original; can you imagine how it would be if they had remade it as many times as they have with Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol"/"Scrooge"? There have been so many remakes under different titles, that there is no surprise element to the storyline. We all know what is going to happen throughout the entire movie, even if they don't stick to the original script.
These movie producers need to leave well enough alone when it comes to the great Christmas Classics, or any Classic Movie for that matter.
I was close to starting an online petition to get this sequel stopped, but Paramount won and I don't need to, but that is how upset and angry I was that they were going to ruin this great Christmas Classic with a sequel.
