Why no Goonies Sequel?

Spielberg from Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart episode:
“[We] have had a lot of conversations about it, and every couple of years we come up with an idea, but then it doesn’t hold water. The problem is the bar that [the cast and filmmakers] raised on this genre. I don’t think we’ve really successfully been able to find an idea that is better than the Goonies that we all made in the ’80s. And so until we do people are just going to have to look at this 100 times.”
