It's a remake that's going to follow the manga storyline.

Since the first episode of the remake is out I'd like to ask a few questions that are most likely of interest to anybody who hasn't seen the original (yet).

1a. Is this remake fully independent of the first version?
1b. Or are some introductory arc(s) being skipped or compressed in a way one wouldn't compress them if this was actually new material?

2. If the remake starts at a latter part of the story or strongly compresses a part of the story up to which episode should one watch the first version then?

3. Is it even possible to obtain a consistent story by mixing original and remake?

The new episode is an anime-original designed to attract viewers with action, but:

1a. From little things that were uttered in this episode, I'd say yes for the most part.
1b. Indications of the preview in this episode show that nothing of the sort seems to be the case.

2. It cuts all ties to the original, and is telling the entire story all over again, but this time following the source material.

3. No, for this show's case.

Thanks so far. But, so the real beginning is in episode 2? In that case I'll let my questions rest for one week.

Is this whole new season considered license? I heard Funimation is going to stream it, is it true? Will it be for free on their youtube channel?

Will they follow the manga storyline all the way to the end? I haven't read the manga but I've heard it should end soon...

I'm not entirely sure yet, but if I had to say, I'd say most likely because the manga is really far into the story, and like you said that should be finishing up, so itll probably be mostly story and less filler and finish like the manga.

Guys, why do you think almost the entire voice cast for FullMetal Alchemist (anime) had to be replaced for the new series?

As far as I've watched the first two episodes, Ed, Al, and King Bradley are the only characters who are voiced by their same seiyuu from the first series.

Armstrong and Hughes have the same voice from the 1st series as well

There could have been a lot of reasons why voices were replaced: maybe certain seiyuu were not available or maybe they wanted to separate this new series from the old one by casting a lot of new voices. After all the story is not the same and even many of the characters' personalities are different from the 1st series.

Brotherhood has a different director and team from the first anime, so it's only natural that they'd have different views on what voices fit the characters or not.

How could I forgot those two as well?

I need to pay attention, seriously.

BTW, I've recently checked FMA:Brotherhood entry in Anime News Network and found out the seiyuu who lent their voices for Pinako Rockbell and Trisha Elric in the first series are reprising those same roles for the new series, as well.

I have a question.

I plan to catch up with the manga before i start to watch the original series, though i was wondering about the novels that i've been hearing about. From what i've read they're just side stories, though i wouldn't mind knowing if they play any importance to the overall story. If possible, i'd like my question to be answered in a spoiler free manner please.

The novels have no importance whatsoever to the manga plot. They are not even written by Arakawa. Although she does illustrations for them.
