But how can the discovery of his skeleton lead to a 'totally different thinking on his personality'?

It is bit like some of the wild assumptions that you hear on Time Team sometimes
I suspect because of the association of his "hunched back" with evil doing which has generally been made over the years by various propaganda merchants.
As he didn't have a hump, wasn't a hunchback, didn't have a withered arm and all the other images people have come to associate with Richard III perhaps there will also be another re-examination of the historical accuracy of the rest of the things he's been accused of or associated with?
