The question of what’s next for Indy after the franchise’s fifth installment came up when Iger was asked if Disney planned to make spin-off films like it has done with Star Wars. Although he denied any such plans for Indiana Jones, Iger explained that the studio was looking into the possibility of a sequel as well as a reboot:
“Not like Star Wars, but we hope… right now, we’re focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort,” Iger cryptically stated. “Well, we’ll bring him back, then we have to figure out what comes next. That’s what I mean. It’s not really a reboot, it’s a boot — a reboot. I don’t know. We [got] Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the film. But then what’s the direction? I’ve had discussions about what the direction is, [but] I don’t want to get into it. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won’t be just a one-off.”
This jibes with comments that series director Spielberg made about Ford’s status by the end of the next film.
“I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans,” said Spielberg recently. “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.”
