I'm really confused by Fairy Tail getting a reboot.

FMA got a reboot because the first anime differed from the manga, so in the reboot they stayed more true.

But from what I read and watched of Fairy Tail, they stayed pretty true to the manga aside from some filler arc (which doesn't really mean it should reboot)

The first anime was done well too.

Also a reboot now seems really soon.

It just doesn't make sense to me really, can anyone explain?

I love fairy tail, so I will watch and am kind of excited. But Im wondering how it will really be different from the first anime, why do I need to see things a third time that manga and anime did already?

It's not. It's continuing where it left off.

They're just updating the character designs a bit, and the overall art style might improve.

In terms of story they're just picking up where they left off though.

Is the staff going to remain the same if they're going for a different art style etc?

Yup as others said, not a reboot, just updated visuals and then continuing where it left off.

The same people are in charge of directing and series composition.

The only staff change I'm aware of is the character designer (was Aoi Yamamoto, will be Shinji Takeuchi). Also before Fairy Tail was co-produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, who's being replaced by A-1 Pictures and Bridge.
