Although, if we skip the whole re-boot idea and focus on the "formula" and moving forward, the newly introduced female lead could have adventures in the late 60's and early 70's; kinda like a "proto-Lara Croft". Old Indy can be kept around to make "Brody-esque" appearances in later movies. And the soundtracks would sell like hotcakes! Disney can roll all of its successful ideas into one new franchise.

I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but I doubt it's what Disney had in mind when they bought the property. Of course, my position is that they should eschew the reboot altogether and make an animated series.

I'd much prefer a live-action reboot set in the late 1920s. Cartoons just don't do it for me anymore (though, considering that I'm in my early 40s now, I guess that's to be expected, and I realize I'm probably not the target demographic. Nevertheless, I AM selfish, and I want something I'LL enjoy, so I say they should do the live-action reboot )

In today's world, anything under around 600 mil, unless it's an independent film or has a very very low budget, is generally considered to be a flop. And even if you get 800, 850 mil...that's not really all that respectable.

Let's say the budget is 250 million. They need 500 million just to break even. And if it only makes 850, that's only 350 million in Disney's pocket - pocket change for them.

But the budget won't be 250 million. Clearly the budget for KOTCS was mismanaged, but you can still make a great adventure/action film with a 150 million budget.

Usually a film is considered a box office success if it makes twice its budget. Even if it's going to cost 250 million (which is not) it only has to make 500 million to be considered a success.

SPECTRE was made with a 250 million budget and with a 880 million box office is considered a huge success. Indy 5 probably won't make that much but it's also not going to cost that much.

The only thing I can think of is there could be a flashback set in the 30s, and the new franchise lead is introduced that way. But I am against the idea of setting up the reboot in Indy 5. Let the reboot stand or fall on its own once it actually happens. Indy 5 should be about Ford's last adventure, full stop.


Lucasfilm cares about canon. The Force Awakens was a “reboot” of the star wars franchise, but it didn’t hit the reset button on continuity. Indy 6 will
Likely Star a new actor but still be canon with Fords films.

Well it would not be a “cartoon”, it would be a 3D animated series like The Clone Wars or Rebels most likely.

Making Indiana Jones a woman is just stupid, it's like putting it out there to satisfy a point of view or an argument. Let's make Tomb Raider with a male instead of a female, there you go ... stupid. Just create a strong female action/archaeologist character... why would you try to change an existing substantiated character into another gender ?? I think the Spielberg interview was things said and then taken out of context by the interviewer, IMHO.

With Star Wars, maybe. With Indy, there's not really a tradition of that.

I always consider those two shows to be cartoons. Maybe my terminology is wrong, but whether we call it a "3D animated series" or a "cartoon," it wouldn't really be something I'd care to see (though, of course, I'd sample a few episodes out of curiosity.)

One of My Favorite shows that didn't last that long was Agent Carter! If they make a female Indiana Jones in the vain of Agent Carter I would be fine with it and it could work. But then would a Woman Indiana Jones be considered a Disney Princess? Ultimately Its up to Disney not Spielberg.

No worries. Just for future reference a “cartoon” is “A form of 2D hand drawn animation”. Neither of those series are 2D nor hand drawn. Just like you wouldn’t refer to a Pixar film as a cartoon.

But I see what you mean for sure. I hope they stick to live action.

I wouldn't mind seeing a cartoon that showed off Indy's WW2 years. It's a great way to have a lot of adventures, given the serial esque nature of a cartoon, and, if fans wanted and he was willing, Harrison could voice a WW2 era Indy. I think it would be better direction than a reboot or a spinoff.

Ford has stated in the past that he's not interested in seeing the series enter into the world of animation. I can see where he's coming from but it would also open up a whole new world of possibilities.
