When Disney purchased Lucasfilm a few years ago, both companies made it very clear that “Star Wars” would be their big focus and the “Indiana Jones” franchise would be put on ice for now.
In the new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”-themed issue of Vanity Fair this month, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has finally confirmed that an “Indiana Jones” movie is happening at Disney, albeit only in very early development:
“[A New Indiana Jones] will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”
Kennedy did not hint that someone else is replacing Harrison Ford at this time, despite rumors that Chris Pratt could take over the role for a reboot of the franchise.
