And the "fourth" reboot-from-scratch movie just blares in from the beginning with the original 70's movie's twist ending that the kids were [SPOILERS], and makes THAT the main plot concept of the Dwayne Johnson-and-kids vehicle.
(Y'know, I remember seeing the original movie in theaters as a kid, and it was a twist, back then. Up to that point, everything was "cool ESP" in the Ford/Carter era.
And then the second movie came along, and just dropped the level of conversation.)
Dwayne turned out to do so well with kids in a family-chase-action story, Disney wanted to finally get that "Jonny Quest" movie going away from Warner--they had their Race Bannon--but looks like Warner held out.
