The original was indeed good Mon-K. I'd dare say it was the Avatar: The Last Air bender of its day and it was a pretty good adventure show. The animation looks really good, but I wonder how much of the stuff they did in the original is going to be there.
That's just it, it isn't a re-make, it's a SEQUEL. This is what comes AFTER the original. They're listing this as a second "season" of the show (presumably they mean series, since the original had more than one season I think) There's a into promo somewhere up on youtube (alas only in French) that sets up the new events and while my French is terrible, I distinctly heard Esteban say something about doing something in his father's memory and his father didn't die until the last episode of the orginal series (come to think of it, Esteban never found out El Dorado was his father. Maybe he was referring to one of the fathers at the monastery where they were. There is of course also the obvious point that at least some of this new version appears to take place in what looks like China, which wasn't in the original. Maybe they're trying to work out where the rest of Tau's people got to (while the English dub says Tau's people are from Hiva in the original he was from Mu, which would be somewhere in the Indian Ocean. So Tau's some of Tao's people might have wound up in China, or visited there).
As for what will come back, hard to say. The Golden Condor is of course still there, as are Mendoza, Sancho and Pablo And I think that there were two people in that opening I mentioned who are probably Gaspar and Gomez. One thing that probably ISN'T still there are the Olmecs. Having them as little bald underground goblin people was OK in the 1980's but I imagine that in these days of increased sensitivity, implying that the ancestors of some Latin Americans have devolved into "monsters" is probably too un-PC to let pass.
