Fans have been waiting for years for another Indiana Jones movie to materialize. No one has seemed comfortable with leaving things at the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Given its influence on adventure and blockbusters as a whole, we want to see the films go out on a high note, not the lackluster one that film brought to the table. It’s taken a long time, but if Harrison Ford’s recent comments are to be believed, we’ll be getting one sooner rather than later.
But, of course, the big question is whether or not, whenever this movie comes out, if it’ll be the kind of thing that Indiana Jones fans will take to. After all this time, there is undoubtedly a good amount of expectation that a fifth film comes with. That being said, Harrison Ford isn’t interested in giving fans exactly what they want to see.
“I don’t really want to give them what they want to see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate,” said Ford. “They are used to a degree of disappointment when you revisit. Certainly, the Marvel movies have made a spectacular example of a success of worked the other way around, they killed it! Well, we’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we are in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best. We’ve got some scheduling issues and a few script things to do but we are determined to get it right before we get it made.”

So, the good news here — Harrison Ford has no interest in making another Indiana Jones movie unless they absolutely kill it in the same way Marvel Studios has killed it, but should fans be concerned? I mean, we know exactly how fans react when movie studios don’t give them what they want. Lucasfilm already has a franchise fans are panning on all fronts: Star Wars.
Like Indiana Jones, Star Wars has one of those nebulous sort of things surrounding it — it’s a series fans grew up with, so they aren’t looking for any quantifiable things from it. Instead, they’re looking for some intangible feeling in their gut. If Indiana Jones 5 doesn’t deliver on that intangible, unattainable feeling — or at least try to bring it — I imagine there will be a lot of pushback from fandom.
But what do you think of Ford’s comments? Do they have you concerned? Let us know your thoughts down below!
