Bob Iger Has Trouble Describing Where Disney Is Taking Indiana Jones
We know that 73-year old Harrison Ford is coming back for Indiana Jones 5 and that Disney doesn't want the franchise to stop there. But just where do they go after that? THR asked Bob Iger, Disney's CEO, and he seemed less than clear on what exactly the plans are:
Not like Star Wars, no. But we hope … right now, we're focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort… Well, we'll bring him 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…
We [got] Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the film. But then what's the direction? I've had discussions about what the direction is, [but] I don't want to get into it…
And if they see making more films:
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.
So, will this be like Ford coming back to play Han Solo? One last time and then find a younger actor to take over? Maybe connect the dots between the five films and the Young Indiana Jones adventures?
