Disney CEO Suggests Indiana Jones Will Be Rebooted After Part 5

If anyone knows what's going on with the universes of Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm, it's the CEO of all of Disney, Bob Iger. In a new interview, Iger said he expects to make more Indiana Jones movies after part five... but that may or may not include Harrison Ford. "Right now, we're focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort," Iger told the Hollywood Reporter in an extended interview. He seemed a bit confused about what the words mean.

"Well, we'll bring [Harrison Ford] back, then we have to figure out what comes next. That's what I mean. It's not really a reboot, it's a boot -- a reboot. I don't know."

Iger then said, while he doesn't expect Indiana Jones to be as large of a franchise as Star Wars, they will make more than just the one film. "I don't think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off."

Cutting through all of that, basically Iger said this: They're making Indiana Jones 5 with Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg. That's the "continuum". From there, they will try a "reboot", or at least "more" Indiana Jones films.

    God damn it, this is what happens when you have a guy named Bob running your studio.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Leave it alone and do something different.

    A reboot may not be terrible if they can put together the right team. First and foremost pick the new Indy (not Shia!) and make sure you get that right. Then build on that with a good writer and a good director so we don't end up with nuking fridges and aliens.

    edit: Look at the Bond franchise, they've managed to become more and more successful in exactly that way.
