Would a Veronica Mars reunion disappoint people?

But Bell said she's not sure if Veronica Mars would work today. “I don't want to see old Veronica Mars,” she told a journalist (Bell turned 40 in July). “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 Veronica Mars movie?
In a recent interview, Percy Daggs III (who played Wallace Fennel) said he can't imagine a Veronica Mars reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Charisma Carpenter (who played Kendall Casablancas) 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 Veronica Mars movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Veronica Mars film, Teddy Dunn stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
