New Jeepers Creepers 3 Story-line: Why?

As a fan of the original Jeepers Creepers films which were released between 2001 and 2003, the third film finished the filming production in Louisiana two months ago with an unknown release date and with one of the strangest story-lines to be shared via social media.

After reading from a few sources, the plot of this movie will be a “fill in the hole” between the first two films. In other words, what happened after Darry’s death, before and after Billy Taggart’s death (second film). Sure, it’s understandable that some people would like to have some questions answered in regards to what happened before and after but why consider doing this plot now? Why didn’t they consider doing this before filming the second film in 2003?

Has it occurred to the writers and director that going with this story will ruin the suspense the audience first encountered when watching both Jeepers Creepers 1 and Jeepers Creepers 2 for the first time?

While some pictures have been released and used in other sources along with other information, I am going to keep this post real and beg the question to my audience: why go along with this story-line and not the one where people are curious about the Creeper’s origins? What makes this story seem to be better than the original script they intended to use?
