How could they not do a blu-ray release. That's just ridiculous.

I'm sure he meant no blu-ray for now; after all, the DVDs weren't released until 2003. Lucas isn't exactly an early adopter of new formats.

By the time the original Indy movies are released on Blu-ray it will be replaced by a different format.

I grew up with the rough VHS-format and for watching Raiders at home, after it was shown in the movies, I had to wait for 3 years (till 1984).
So come on - be pleased to have furthermore expectations for the Indiana Jones franchise for the next years.

Personally I could care less if the films are released on blu ray because DVD still looks fine to me.

Okay, think I finally found it...

Steve Sansweet knews absolutley nothing about Indiana Jones 5 because he is the "Star Wars"-Franchise man and like he said, Star Wars is in Lucas' hand and so it's toy marketing. In the opposite there is Indiana Jones with much less potential for toy marketing and Indiana Jones is not only in Lucas' hand, but also in Steven Spielberg's, Harrison Ford's and Paramount's hand. That's the toughie!
But that's not really a new surprising information. Nothing more interesting but hot air. Good night from germany.

Sansweet is hardly just a "Star Wars franchise man"; his formal title is Director of Content Management and Head of Fan Relations at Lucasfilm, so I'm sure he's in the loop of all major Lucasfilm projects

I agree. If I had a Blu-Ray player maybe I'd care more, but some of that grittiness in the regular DVD transfers adds to the charm. I wonder sometimes if it's too polished, it will take something away from the film? Then again, I've seen very little of Blu-Ray movies, besides the demos at stores, and even then they were always brand new films like Quantum of Solace, not movies from the 70's and 80's.

What an incredibly insightful thing for a Lucasfilm fan relations person to say.

Agreed. But more than that, do we really want it on Blu-ray? I could see Lucas tinkering with the final product even more, a la the Young Indy series. For my money, the '03 DVD release will be nigh impossible to top.

There are probably lots of little, nifty bonus features that could be added, but I personally don't want to know how every little effect was achieved; i.e., the pane of glass separating Indy from the cobra in Raiders. I never noticed it until that enhanced VHS box set came out in the late nineties. Y'know, the one that gave you the free tape of Young Indy and the Peacock's Eye.

Maybe, but once you see a blu ray you will be amazed! CE3K, Superman the Movie and other older films look amazing so I'm sure the later Indy films will look stunning.

And its like moving from a single to a double bed - there's no going back!

I've seen a few Blu Ray movies. And, yes, they look nice (except for that weird "true motion" enabler). But I'm a college student and a movie buff, so money is virtually nonexistent as of now. So say I shell out an ungodly amount of money on a blu ray player which will lead to me wanting a bigger HDTV. And since, now, I got a bigger HDTV and blu ray player, gee, I wonder what all those hundreds of DVDs will look in blu ray. So I end up re buying a lot of movies.

Spending a ton of money I don't have. On movies I already have. Because it looks pretty.

I don't have this money to burn. I don't need a good movie in 1280p for me to enjoy it.

Because in a few years, blu ray players will be going for $75 Walgreens and I'll be able to do this all over again anyways.

I doubt I'll ever buy a standalone Blu-ray player. Yes, it looks nice -- and there's tons of storage capability -- but, the jump from DVD to Blu-ray isn't nearly as significant as the jump between VHS & DVD.

It's realtive... I have a state of the art 50" plasma and, unfortunately, the quality of normal DVD's just doesn't cut the mustard any more e.g. grainy, blurred etc. I'd say the jump from DVD to HD is comparable to VHS to DVD, but it's not as democratic... i.e. you have to be a relatively wealthy bast**d like me to afford all the gear for it to make a difference.

i think if they put the original trilogy on blu-ray they could add to each movie the "makings of" from the the television broadcasts along with the add aons made for the special edition dvds and the 2003 releases --- that in my opinion would be excellent

Personally, the thing that's keeping me from getting a Blu-Ray player is the fact that I don't own an HDTV yet, and both together can be rather pricey. But knowing myself, I'll give the plunge when SW and/or Indy come out on Blu-Ray.
