In case you missed it, Disney is now in full control of Indiana Jones’ past, present and future

Featured, Movies


According to Variety, Disney has paid Paramount for the rights to market and release future films in the Indiana Jones franchise — which apparently wasn’t part of their acquisition of Lucasfilm as a whole last fall.

Not only will Paramount get a cut of the existing four films’ distribution, but they’ll also profit from any future installments.

Does this make it certain that there will be a fifth Indy movie? Variety seems to think so, and it makes sense. But will Disney pin the franchise on an aging star, or explore other possibilities such as a reboot or even animation?
