Would an Un Paso Adelante reunion disappoint people?

Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Luengo said she's not sure if Un Paso Adelante would work today. “I don't want to see old Lola Fernández,” she told a journalist (Luengo turned 37 in December). “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 an Un Paso Adelante movie?

Co-star Mónica Cruz (who played Silvia Jauregui) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Un Paso Adelante movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Un Paso Adelante film, Natalia Millán stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
