BS! That's what creators always say when they are milking the cash cow of their past creations. Look at the Star wars special edition... or worse the Phantom menace. Even if it is true, it isn't nessisarily a good thing.

If I remember correctly, ADV helped finance the bloody thing, just like (the truly awful) Burn up W.
