Would a Big Time Rush reunion disappoint people?

But Bravo said she's not sure if Big Time Rush would work today. “I don't want to see old Katie Knight,” she told a journalist (Bravo turned 25 in March). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Big Time Rush movie?

Co-star Elizabeth Gillies (who played Heather Fox) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Big Time Rush movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Big Time Rush film, Russell Brand stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
