Disney talks possibility of Indiana Jones movie universe

07.18.2016

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm for all the gold in the Seven Kingdoms, not only was there much speculation about the future of the STAR WARS universe, but INDIANA JONES as well. But luckily we have gotten word that Indiana Jones will return, and that the dynamic duo of Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will be cracking the whip together again. However, it is important to note that Ford will be 77 years old by the time this new JONES movie is slated to come out. Though we are all looking for a Fountain of Youth-type elixir so that he may go on playing Jones for centuries to come, I don't think we will find it in time.

So, naturally, those at Disney are looking to the future, and Collider reports the studio has a very specific goal in mind when it comes to the historic series. ILM President Lynwen Brennan gave a detailed explanation of what they’re doing during a panel called "The Art of Storytelling" at Star Wars Celebration Europe:

Kiri [Hart] and her group have mapped out a story and timeline across multiple platforms many years in advance, many exhausting years in advance. … We have a great honor to have responsibility for, so we want to be really careful with that. Not only for Star Wars but with Indiana Jones, which we’re all really excited about as well.

This comes on the heels of something Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke about last month, where he talked about the idea of more JONES movies:

Right now, we’re focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort…We’ll bring [Ford] back, then we have to figure out what comes next. That’s what I mean. It’s not really a reboot, it’s a boot — a reboot. I don’t know.

There was also word that there is a Story Group behind JONES that will help navigate where the stories go, much like with STAR WARS, where this kind of group navigates how main “episodes” of WARS tie in with standalone movies. If this is the case for JONES I would go as far as to consider that a bit of overkill. JONES doesn’t exist in a massive universe like STAR WARS or Marvel movies. He is his own being and each movie can be its own, unique adventure. There’s no knowing how a JONES movie universe would actually work, but with this series, maybe it’s best to just stick with individual adventures.

INDIANA JONES 5 is set for release on July 19, 2019 with Steven Spielberg set to direct, David Koepp on script, John Williams doing the music, George Lucas confirmed to executive produce and Harrison Ford will return as the greatest archaeologist of them all. And I'm sure there are a lot.

Leave Indy alone

Have they forgotten about those National Treasure movies? Expand that universe instead by looking at the long history of the Gates family and their heroes until the present day.

I mean, with LucasFilm and Marvel under their belt, don't tell me they can't afford Nicolas Cage anymore.

For me its Easy

The next Indiana Jones must to be a Storyline whit flashbacks where we have a New and Young Henry Jones doing some enemy thats return in his future as Dr Jones, put adventure and danger in Both timelines that leaves Us in some point that maybe this a Sequel BUT also a Prequel .... and at the end leaves us ready for a Sequel for more Indiana Jones movies or a Reboot then ....

One Indy "universe" idea that could be cool...

I really don't want to see the roll recast for a reboot, but what about cannon comic book stories like Marvel is currently doing with Star Wars? A lot of these comics are excellent, in continuity stories and it would be really cool to see that done with Indiana Jones. Get some of the best comic book writers and artists to tell cannon Indy stories we've never "seen". Like what's was Indy up to between films? I'm sure there are a lot of stories to tell there.

Just make Indiana Jones a black chick and get it over with. Scratch that. Probably not liberal enough for Hollywood. Make her a lesbian black chick with some sort of physical disability. yep. That checks all the right boxes. The adventures of qu'nisha jones. She will explore anywhere......as long as it's wheel chair accessible.

And that's where her Asian Trans (vestite, sexual, gender) sidekick comes in and deals with that problem.

"It's not really a reboot it's a boot a reboot. I don't know?" Wtf. Sounds like an SNL skit making fun of Hollywood producers today. That word "reboot" is ruining Hollywood.

Brendan Frasier was so close with the Mummy movies to Indy, I had a better feeling with him being his son but that's already done and over. Chris Pratt would have been the next choice but he's already got too many things going on.

Are we heading towards films where we start on an elderly man sitting in a chair saying "I remember when" and the screen wavers and we see the adventures of [link] Indiana Jones?

NO

Just fuck off Disney. Now it's clearly the greed that's speaking. Just let this franchise be. Grow a pair and rather create an original IP instead.

Blech

I know some liked Crystal Skull. But me... when the soldier was being carried away by giant CGI ants, my sister scoffed again. I asked, "Do you want to just leave?" She said "No. Let's finish this." It was terrible. I think it's time to just leave that franchise alone. CGI, age, the timeline Indy is set in now, and the mere THREAT of passing it off to a new generation are reasons to just abandon it altogether. The magic is gone. Can we just let sleeping dogs lie?
Finally... replace Indiana

Finally... replace Indiana Jones with someone else, such as Nathan Drake.... just, don't have Indy occupy the same universe, but keep the fun and adventure of the series alive. I'd be fine with that.
