These interviews just remind me why Ford is still one of the coolest actors ever.

The word reboot is tossed around too often. Either a movie is a sequel, or a reboot. Blade Runner 2049 isn't a reboot. It's a sequel. Unless something in the movie totally undoes or undercuts the original film, it's a sequel. LC came out half a decade after TOD - Was it a reboot? No. KOTCS?

Sequel = continuation of the storyline
Soft reboot = sequel that ignores or alters some earlier canon (IE Jurassic World is a direct sequel to Jurassic Park and ignores the original two sequels. Star Trek 2009 alters the ST universe overall. SW prequels can be considered reboots in that they retooled a lot of the existing lore of the franchise. SW sequels are the same in that they undid the beloved EU; Rogue One rewrites some of the events of the original '77 SW in subtle ways).
Hard reboot - ignores all existing previous canon (IE Batman Begins ignores the Burton/Schumacher movies.)

A reboot to me implies a restart of a franchise after a much maligned entry. Ala Batman. It implies the previous film was bad in some way and needs fixing.

While sequelitis is often the reason behind reboots, it's still a little narrow-minded to imply reboots only happen after it has already set in.

It can also be a preventive measure. There's nothing wrong with the existing canon, but every once in a while it may still be a hindrance to the best story that can be told.


I do agree however, that for something to be defined as a reboot, it must disregard or shake up the existing canon in some noticeable way. If it doesn't, it's a sequel (or prequel), no matter how much time has passed since the previous entry.

JW did not make the two sequels uncanon, though. They're still canon and JW does reference them, albeit in subtle ways.
I'm pretty sure JP5 will even reference them further.

The Force Awakens is a reboot as well as a sequel: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...Leibovitz.html

Hi, Andy. I think it's a terrible question. Harrison should've answered:

"Listen kid, a single movie isn't a franchise and a sequel isn't a reboot. Next question."

Who knew that H.Ford starred in a 1978 reboot of the 1961 "Guns of Navarone" franchise? As for "Star Wars", it's been delivering movies & TV shows on a consistent basis since 1997, living & breathing fine for 20 years now.

Yeah my sarcasm fell flat

I see what the question is getting at, basically resurrecting characters from early in his career, but the choice of wording in using reboot is just all wrong.

For some reason he looks old in interviews but in these candid shots and in BR 2049 he looked good.

Harrison Ford's age is the thing that worries me the least about Indy V. I honestly thought he brought his A-game to KotCS - it was the script, the cinematography and even Spielberg's direction that were the problem. So it's these things that worry me about the new film, not Ford.

The script and Spielberg's lack of interest were more products of Lucas shoving his vision down Spielberg's throat. The script was a messy compromise just to get ANYTHING release. With Lucas no longer in exclusive creative control over Indy, that's no longer an issue. Whereas from 1989 to 2007, if Lucas said "This is what an Indy film is going to be", that's what it had to be or it wouldn't be made.

He's out rescuing people.

SANTA PAULA, Calif. (AP)

Harrison Ford came to the real-life rescue of a woman who was involved in a car accident north of Los Angeles.

Santa Paula, California, police tell the Ventura County Star that the actor and a friend were in the area when a car rolled off a highway in the small town Sunday around noon. Senior Officer Matt Alonzo says Ford and the friend came to the driver's aid and acted as good Samaritans. He says Ford and other people on scene were able to help the woman out of the car. She suffered minor injuries.

I wish Pale Horse would just come out and say he hopes Harrison would just kick the bucket. Would make him a much more genuine person rather than being passive-aggressively hateful.

It'd be perfectly fine by me if he looked just like this in Indy 5. If only they would start shooting right now...

Harrison Ford doesn't look 75 to me. He looks like a man of no older than 60 in all honesty. If you did some makeup on him and some hair dye he could genuinely pass for 55 or so. My parents are 63 and they look much worse than him. What ages him is his lack of hair dye, and his instance on that stupid (hair) fringe. If he cut his hair to a buzzcut like he had it in the late 90s/early 00s he'd look much younger.


Someone with Photoshop skills smooth out some of the wrinkles and darken his hair here:
