Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford Confirm ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot for 2019

Since 2016 seems to be the year of nostalgiic media, let’s continue this journey into future years… for the rest of our lives… until no one ever has an original idea ever again. Coming summer 2019, Indiana Jones reboots itself in the presence of familiar faces. Indiana Jones, for better or for worse, has what a lot of nostalgia media has lacked this year–its original production team save for one very important character. As per Hollywood Reporter:

This will be the first Indiana Jones movie that does not include George Lucas’ participation. Lucas and Spielberg famously hatched the idea for the series while vacationing in Hawaii after the release of the first Star Wars movie, and Lucas served as executive producer of films in the series. In 2012, Lucas sold Lucasfilm, which holds the rights to Indiana Jones, to Disney.

In the arms of Disney, anything is possible, but they did just put out a killer Star Wars episode, proving that they are deserving proprietors of the Lucasfilm legacy. Spielberg will continue to direct absent Lucas. Harrison Ford will probably continue to reprise this role until he dies and franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce in tandem as they have on prior franchise installations.

All seems well out of the gate, but what will it be about? Indiana Jones Tackles Global Warming. Indiana Jones Steals Calabasas Back from the KardashiansIndiana Jones Attempts to Stop Shia LaBeouf From Doing More Performance Art. Producer, and now president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy shares:

We’re all trying to figure out when the right time is to step back in. Harrison really wants to do it; Steven really wants to do it. We’ve kicked around a couple of story ideas, but beyond that, I don’t know yet. I think there will be one, we’ll certainly move forward with Indy.

Get excited! In three years you’ll have a fifth Indiana Jones DVD to add to your shelf.
