This feels to me like a distinction without a difference. An Indy spinoff, if featuring a younger sidekick introduced in Indy V, and thus set in, at earliest, the early 1960s, bears no substantial relationship that I can imagine to the spirit of the Indy films. Different character, different period, different creators: what's the point of tying them together?
And how would they even shoehorn the Indiana Jones name in there? The Jones Legacy
