No I think it's just another case of the people behind the reboot having little affection or respect for the source material and wanting to remake it in their image. There's some things they can't use because Motu and Pop are differently licences. Like He-man, Skeletor and the Sorceress. But other than that there's really no reason why they couldn't make a more recognizable show.
