I really hope one of these days Blizzard announces that they will bring back all the original characters (amazon, barb, pally, necro, sorc, druid, and assassin) to a new patch. I know that most of the new characters that are introduced in D3 are combinations of D2 characters but the individuality of these characters brings back that nostalgic feeling I believe many veteran Diablo players will appreciate. I want to spawn a load of skeletons to take down my enemies! And imagine seeing the graphics of holy shield and frozen orb and many of the other skills using D3's engine.

They are not going to bring back the original characters. They already brought back the Barbarian, Monk is basically the Assassin, the Witch Doctor is basically the Necromancer. D3 already has frozen orb, it's a Wizard skill.

I'm sorry do you work with/at Blizzard to make such statements? Most likely not so I'm just going to believe that one day they "might". The monk is more of the paladin and assassin mixed while demon hunter is based mostly off assassin with bits of amazon. The original animation for the skills would look cooler than they already do on d2 using d3's game engine. The wizard's frozen orb fails in comparison to the sorceress' skill. The witch doctor and necromancer even though they may appear to be similar (poison and curses) both are different. Necromancers use necromancy while witch doctors use voodoo. I want to summon skeletons not spawn three dogs and a oversized gargantuan to take down my foes.

They only do one character per expansion so far, and they originally planned for two expansions. If they added classes from D2 it would conflict with the classes in D3. Having the necromancer side-by-side with the witch doctor would devalue both classes, as they would be different versions of the same thing. Same deal as with the sorcerer and the wizard, they are very similar so they will never meet, it's part of game design, making sure players can choose from a set of unique heroes, not a roster of versions.
If you want to summons skeletons, there are a number of items that will perform that function.
