Whilst I don't know a whole lot about Origins (I don't think anyone does - do they?) I do wonder, based on what I have read (in that it's a prequel, and more focusing on the life of Catherine Langford before the elements of space travel, the Goa'uld and the Asgard) I can't help but wonder whether a reboot would have been the way to go?
I know production and such cost quite a bit back then, one of the reasons we commonly saw the various Jaffa without their respective headgear, but when I think of all the other possibilities and the other Goa'uld System Lords, and the other head gear and costumes we could have seen, and then think about how much easier and cost effective it could be, I do wonder what they could do with the Goa'uld from a modern production.
Who wouldn't want to see Bast Guard, or Ram Guard? Who wouldn't want to see a vast selection of Goa'uld type ships? Imagine a fleet where each God has ships of different design? May be a bit much, but would beat always seeing Ha'ak type vessels.
But yeah, I guess my ultimate question is whether people would prefer a reboot, or a prequel? I'm sure the prequel will do well; lets face it, a new Stargate project has been a long time coming, and the Star Trek prequel seems to be doing quite well, so I have no doubt that Origins will shine, I just ponder whether it was the right decision by the studio.
