Back when Disney paid $3 billion to purchase Lucasfilm, most focused on what they could and would do with the 'Star Wars' franchise. But, let's not forget about that other big Lucasfilm franchise: Indiana Jones. If Disney's dropping stacks on stacks for Lucasfilm, you better believe they're going to want their money's worth, and that includes a new series of Indiana Jones movies. Case in point: Disney has reportedly ready to focus on a reboot of the popular character and want 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt to take over the whip from Harrison Ford.
When Disney made that big purchase of Lucasfilm way back when, not only did it encompass the beloved 'Star Wars' franchise, but also 'Indiana Jones,' the latter of which is easily forgettable as the long-gestating 'Indiana Jones 5' has shied away from headlines recently. However, with Disney set to distribute any potential new installments of the Harrison Ford-led films, more are likely on the way
A couple of years ago Disney bought the rights to Star Wars that enables them to plan for future movies and gives them the rights to merchandise and distribution. Now the company has purchased the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount.
