That doesn't make my comparison any less valid.
So, through your reasoning, by virtue of it being 'Star Wars' it's going to be good, no matter what happens? Force Commander? Holiday Special? anybody?
The only thing that would need to be done with the old trilogy would be maybe to redo some of the special effects shots (blaster, lightsabers ONLY, no CGI space battles, thank you), and it would fit pretty seamlessly with the new trilogy.
A remake isn't required, and it would be pretty sucky.
