I remember this movie a little. It might be good with all the new technology and all that they use to make movies now that they didn't have in 1986.

So long as Guttenberg has nothing to do with it, I'm willing to give it a watch.

Surely they wouldn't use the same actors. I think for this they would bring in some new young actors and just begin all over again with it or at least that's what I hope they would do.

I mean for like a guest appearance, like if he played the military general as a nod to him being in the original.

Like Mark Goddard, June Lockhart, Marta Kristen, and Angela Cartwright, were in the Lost in Space movie as bit characters.
