Sure, We’ll Check Out an Indiana Jones Animated Show on Disney Plus, You?

Raiders Of The Lost Ark ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As a fan of several animated TV series — and we are currently reviewing an animated TV show every Saturday morning — including those based on familiar IP, I’d very much be interested in an Indiana Jones animated series.

Good to see there’s a rumor that one is under development for Disney+.

…in the eyes of most fans, there’s no Indy without Harrison Ford, which presents a pretty sizable roadblock for the Mouse House to try and work around. However, insider Daniel Richtman now claims that an animated series is in development for Disney Plus, which is arguably the smartest way to carry on the franchise.

Just a rumor, mind you, but hey. What do you think? Would you be interested?

Honestly, I’m somewhat less interested in Indy 5 (see: Should Indiana Jones 5 be Harrison Ford’s last action film?)

Rocky Mountain Treasure Hunt SOLVED — Indiana Jones Would Approve

Raiders of the Lost Ark ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We need more stories about people getting out of the house and searching for treasure — safely, of course — trying to find treasure in the mountains. In this case, the Rocky Mountains held a cache worth seven figures, hidden by an elderly man named Forrest Fenn (love that name, btw!) wanting to inspire others.

The treasure, estimated to be worth over $1 million, was a way for Fenn to inspire people to explore nature and give hope to people affected by the Great Recession, he said.

Used to hear a lot about geocaching, which is another type of treasure hunting, using GPS devices. Never tried that out, but it also seemed like something good to get people out, about and active. That remains one of the top reasons I think movie theaters will have people returning as soon as they open. Will there be as many? Probably not at first, but as more and more good new movies come out — and most will only be available at movie theaters — I think just like casinos reopening, people will come.

People want to return to life as it was before this pandemic. I have faith in human spirit being vastly stronger than any virus. Look what this one guy did, inspired many people to enjoy nature and the mere possibility of finding riches. Creative and cool, good idea Mr. Fenn.

Indiana Jones and the Temperamental of Geriatric Doom

Harrison Ford won’t say it, he will never say never, just like Sean Connery’s too old final Bond title role, so somebody else needs to say no — never again — for him. As much as I’d love to see another Indy movie, really it kills me to dump on one of my all time favorite action franchises and favorite actors, I don’t ever want to see a CGI de-aged Indy movie.

I’m painfully reminded of Ford’s last movie where he was upstaged by a CGI dog (see: Behind the Tennis Ball Man playing Buck the CGI Dog on The Call Of The Wild)

Is that what we’ll get in Indy 5? Or perhaps a ton of stunt doubles? I imagine it will be something like Babe Ruth in his final plate appearances seeing Harrison Ford at age 80 up there huffing with the fedora and whip. Please, no.

If Indy 5 does come out and it’s good, I’ll gladly eat these words. I’m old too, not as old as Ford, but getting older by the year, and some places consider me a senior citizen. I’m not about to root against seniors in acting roles, but am worried for Ford doing this kind of physical role at 80. It’s not like he’s acting in a reboot of On Golden Pond. Dude could get seriously hurt in this type of role. I’d like to see him acting in movies for another 20 years, not getting his back broken running, jumping and wrestling.

Of course Ford will be up for playing Indy and will undoubtedly be on the ball, but… but… he’s just too old. Nobody wants to see Jones with a zimmer frame. We don’t want to see him become a side joke. Jones shouldn’t become like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator in the last two films. A walking joke, a constant stream of ironic OAP reference.

Please, can we just scrap Indiana Jones 5?

Pondered this a month ago, so here we are again more passionately, see: Should Indiana Jones 5 be Harrison Ford’s last action film? As more time goes by, and some of the delays — maybe most of them — aren’t Ford’s problem, but the ever-ticking clock of life gets all of us sooner or later. I’m worried that Indy 5 will suck. Will it stain Ford’s legacy? No. Will it mean there can’t be an Indy 6 after Ford is gone with a different Indy? No. The franchise will survive regardless what happens with Indy 5. If they can keep cranking out sequels to low budget horror movies, Indiana Jones the franchise will outlive everybody reading alive at the time this was posted.

Can it be better than Indy 4? I rewatched that recently — but didn’t write a review — it wasn’t as bad as I remembered, actually. Doesn’t mean I liked it as well as the first three, but it had moments that it was decent. I liked seeing Karen Allen return as Marion Ravenwood from the original movie (1981!).

1981. 1981. 1981.

In 2022, when Indy 5 is now teasing to be released, that will be 41 years ago. Raiders of the Lost Ark ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is one of the greatest action movies ever made (1981!), but to think the lead star can return 41 years later to be the lead again is likely asking too much — even for an amazing actor like Harrison Ford.

Do you want to see Indy 5 with Harrison Ford in the lead, regardless how old he is at the time?

Who knows if it will be delayed again. Before the current crap hit the fan, Ford was planning to get started filming, so production was halted. If they have a script and are ready to film, then there is a strong chance we will see this film in the future … but should we be looking forward to it?

Should Indiana Jones 5 be Harrison Ford’s last action film?

Let’s be honest about Harrison Ford. Great actor, been in some amazing movies and has helmed several iconic characters: Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Jack Ryan, to name the big three.

I’m not counting as one of these his recent portrayal as John Thornton in The Call of The Wild ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Yes, I recommended others go see it, because it was entertaining. It wasn’t that good, but it was entertaining. Read my review and decide whether or not the movie might be for you. Personally, I preferred the real dogs and Charlton Heston in the 1972 adaptation, but admit that is much darker and violent version. That wasn’t a Disney effort, so no big surprise.

Ford was upstaged — intentionally — by a CGI dog. Instead of Buck the CGI dog being the Chewbacca of The Call of the Wild, Buck was tasked with the majority of action scenes. Buck was the star in a movie starring Harrison Ford, how can that be?

Can’t believe any actor — young or old — wants to be supporting actor to CGI trickery — and yet he was. This leaves me even more concerned about Indiana Jones 5, a film that has been plagued by release date delays for years. The most current bad news is Steven Spielberg dropping out as director. It’s not that often we get a Steven Spielberg directed movie any more and Indiana Jones without Spielberg directing is a bummer.

I have no idea how many action movies Harrison Ford has left (or how long he’ll be doing his own stunts for), but I hope he’s still playing tennis and fighting bad guys a decade from now.

How Harrison Ford Is Still Able To Make Indiana Jones 5 At 77 – CINEMABLEND

While I wish Harrison Ford well, I must disagree with the author of the Cinemablend post quote above. I don’t want to see 80, almost 90 year old Harrison Ford in an action film. I’d be OK with some minor acting roles (please don’t play second fiddle to any more CGI dogs), but supporting roles in future films seem like an unfair way for Harrison Ford to go out. He might be OK with a supporting role, but as a fan and moviegoer, that does not seem a dignified end to such an awesome acting career.

I’d rather see him go back to being a carpenter. Harrison Ford doesn’t need to make any more action movies. Honestly, I don’t think he needs to make Indy 5, because Indy 4 was underwhelming.

Just so it’s clear: I have nothing against Harrison Ford acting until he dies. I just don’t think he should be in any more action movies. Play senior citizens. George Burns was able to stay active acting until the end, so why not Harrison Ford?

What do you think?
