Blade Runner 2049 Trailer: The long awaited sequel to the movie that really didn't need a sequel

I can't say I was ever thrilled with the ending of Blade Runner but I also never felt that it was incomplete or that the story needed to be continued. Given that it took 35 years to make a sequel, I don't think that Ridley Scott felt it was unfinished either. 

Still, now that we're in a world where robots are about to take over the workforce. Maybe Scott has found a theme that needs to be explored further or an element of the old story that warrants a new one? The trailer certainly looks spectacular so I'll try to suspend my cynicism about Hollywood and hope this isn't another attempt to diminish Harrison Ford's most iconic characters.
