It doesn't have to be an improvement
No, but if it isn't an improvement then it ought to be different - one or the other. From the trailer I see another version of the 1974 film - desperately shouting children against a background of the usual jolly rollicking music, skull and crossbones flapping in wind machines etc, except that they have tacked on the spy nonsense at the end and the cast is less well chosen. It was fine in 1974, but now I would expect a total new approach. This is a film, not a Sunday evening 'period costume' TV serial.
