Adding meaningful content is logical.  Adding content for the sake of content isn't.  Having questions and curiosity is logical.  Defending and insisting a game none of us has really played isn't.    

First two sentences is true, but how do you know if FF7R content is logical or not? I was willing to let your doom and gloomly concerns go, but you've taken this way to far by contradicting yourself. I don't see any hint of curiosity in your post, except for one question you asked about how Midgar can be +40 hours without "filler crap"

Chrkeller said:
Agreed absolutely 100%. Modern games have far too much filler crap.

You have not played the game yet but you already in a subtle way claim FF7R have too much filler crap based on a few screenshots and because it's a modern game.

Not a fan of the art style. I also worry there is going to be too much tedious walking around. I'm still not sure how Midgar is 40 hours.

Immersiveunreality already answered you. And your reply was still you're worried about fillar material, I guess because it's a modern game?

I understand the story will be expanded, but 5 hours to 40 hours... that is more than an expansion. I just worry that a lot of that 40 hours will be silly filler material. Again, I am in the camp that modern games are too long and tedious. Short(er) and focused is a personal preference.

So far from all this it seems like it does not matter how many explanations we can give you based on what is known. You've already made up your mind. What makes it worse is that even-though I'm trying to show you with reasons from the lore of FF7, you've brushed it off as if we was blindly defending the game. That is not the way a person who is curious and is willing to debate would act.
