Old Indy bookends removed to make way for Old Indy in the movies?(Indy 5 speculation)
Here's a thought that just occured to me. Not sure if it's horrifying or amazing; time will tell.
Whether you hate it or love it, with Indy 4 out and thoughts turning to a possible new installment, it has occured to me that Lucas may be gearing up to play out the story of Indy's (as Harrison Ford) life on screen. His statements about Indy 5 placing Ford in the role of a Sean Connery Henry Sr type position suggest that Ford's advancing age may not necessarily prevent them from creating a few more sequels. With the thoughts that new Indy movies would see Ford going into his 70s (and possibly beyond?!), it stands to reason that we may see a new version of Indy's later years that doesn't fit with the one the Chronicles previously laid out for us. Indy's commentary about riding with Pancho Villa in the new film seems to solidify the Young Indy stories as canon (not to reopen an old can of worms), and the talk of Indy 5 seems to give some credence to the idea that George Hall's Old Indy may have been purposefully removed from the canon to make way for a new version as acted by Ford. Any thoughts on this? Do we want to see a new Old Indy as teacher/mentor/ex-adventurer played out on the big screen?
Remember though that the bookends were removed over a decade ago, when even KOTCS was a twinkle in Lucas' eye. And since the bookends are still considered canon by Lucasfilm, they must have been removed for a different reason, perhaps simply for storytelling purposes. :confused:
