Greg Milano's script will be taut and intelligent but still funny and family friendly, and won't lean too heavily on regurgitated pop culture references. Director Tim Hill has learned a lot since ''{{Hop}}'' and ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'', and will endeavor to explore the human condition from the view of an outsider in a way that isn't preachy, trite, insultingly simplistic, or overtly sentimental. The CGI will be good but subtle and won't dominate the picture. All the actors will bring their A games, especially the kid playing Johnny 5's emotionally troubled young friend, whose performance will provide a [[MixedMetaphor rock-solid emotional anchor]] for the film. The film won't just surpass the original; it'll actually surpass nostalgia-addled fans' memories of the original.

* A corollary on that guess could be that they decided to remake it instead of making such a sequel because most people have already seen a scenario of robots vs. humans in Film/TheTerminator, CaptainPowerAndTheSoldiersOfTheFuture, Franchise/TheMatrix, Film/IRobot, Franchise/{{Transformers}} and Series/PowerRangersRPM, so at most it could be SoOkayItsAverage.
