Vanity Fair’s Star Wars issue is still hot on the shelves. In one interview with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, she paused a moment to throw in a little teaser about a certain other property settled within our own galaxy: Indiana Jones.
Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and later brokered a financial deal with Paramount for “future films,” fans have been patiently waiting for news about their favorite fedora-wearing, snake-hating, adventure-going archeology professor. Kennedy gives her first confirmations to the rumors about there being another Indy movie on the way.
“[Indiana Jones] will one day be made inside this company,” Kennedy said. “When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”
This is great news! I’ve always been a bigger fan of Indiana Jones than Star Wars (sorry, Jenna), and I can’t wait to see what they’re come up with next. I guess our next question will be, “Will Kingdom of the Crystal Skull still count? Can we please just forget that movie ever existed?”
Also, can please get an Indiana Jones roller coaster ride? Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been dreaming of a ride inspired by the mine cart chase in Temple of Doom.
