    Zorro was just an example I pulled out of thin air as it were.

Since you brought it up, Zorro is already in the public Domain. (or so I learned after a quick Google search.) I think a lot of writers will use public domain material as a way to "cut their teeth" on the writing process. Its already being done with fan fiction.

    As to Star Wars, sure an all new saga would be cool, but inevitably it will be rebooted and revised, not all new

    Frankly after the disaster of the sequels, I am surprised they aren't rebooting the whole thing vs the retcons that are planned.

    Gone With the Wind: given the era that it is set in, I don't think the racism could every truly be purged.

Another Google search tells me that that particular IP will enter public domain in 2031 (in the US). It could be interesting to see a retelling of that book from the African Americans perspective.
