Indiana Jones is coming to Disney+ with his own TV series.
According to Variety, Disney and Lucasfilm are “actively” looking to develop a new TV series starring the legendary archaeologist… but it’s unclear if Harrison Ford is involved.
Reportedly, the series is in a very early stage of development and it has no writer, so plot details are non-existent. It is also not known if the series will be a prequel or a spin-off of the popular film franchise, which will continue with Indiana Jones 5 in 2023.
Apparently, both Disney and Lucasfilm have raised the possibility of a series set in the Indiana Jones universe. What this means remains to be seen… but Ford is unlikely to be involved. After all, he has already hinted that he will hang up his hat after Indiana Jones 5.
Whether Ford returns or not, Disney will not give up on Indiana Jones in the future.
Reportedly, the studio is exploring other options to continue the franchise, which could mean a new series, new movies, other media, or all at once. We’ll have to wait and see.
Of course this It wouldn’t be the first time Indiana Jones has headed to the small screen.. The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones was released in 1992, focusing on a young Indy played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier. George Hall played an elderly Indiana Jones who appeared at the beginning and end of each episode.
It’s no wonder Disney wants to keep the franchise going, and with the success of Marvel and Star Wars TV series of late, it could be another plus point for the company.
