It's not all long time fans. Don't sweat it.

It is only a bit stupid to publicly talk about it in my opinion, don't tell the crowd how the magic works.
I'm reminded of the review Isaac Asimov did of the original televised Battlestar Galactica, back in the 70s. It started something like this:

A little while ago, a movie came out that was called Star Wars. The expectation was the everyone involved in the project was going to lose their reputation, their careers, and worse of all, money.

But because it was a relative departure from what had gone before, it therefore seemed new and fresh to the audiences. And so, surprise! It made money. It made buckets of money.

And so Hollywood producers, realizing that something different would make money, decided to go out and do something different too. The same something different..."

Plus ça change...

I'm reminded of something someone said about the Bond franchise, before Casino Royale came out (the Daniel Craig Casino Royale, not the 60s David Niven Casino Royale).

Anyway, some interviewer asked about the need of each Bond film to top the last one in terms of locations, stunts, explosions, etc. The person being interviewed replied with something like:

Every time we start a Bond film, we always say that we're going to make 'From Russia With Love' again. And it never ends up that way.
