At the beginning of the month fans of Harrison Ford's wisecracking, hunky, cranky archaeologist Indiana Jones got a dose of good news: the increasing mega-blockbuster spawning behemoth that is Disney snatched up the rights to all future films. And you don't make a move like that unless you actually have plans to do just that. So, yes, "Indiana Jones 5" (or whatever it will be called) is indeed on the way, but you'll have to wait.

Raiders Of The Lost Ark

At the beginning of the month fans of Harrison Ford's wisecracking, hunky, cranky archaeologist Indiana Jones got a dose of good news: the increasing mega-blockbuster spawning behemoth that is Disney snatched up the rights to all future films. And you don't make a move like that unless you actually have plans to do just that. So, yes, "Indiana Jones 5" (or whatever it will be called) is indeed on the way, but you'll have to wait.

“We haven’t done anything,” Disney chairman Alan Horn told Variety about what, if any, progress has been made on a sequel. “We don’t have  a story. We need a story.” Basically, any further adventures of Indiana Jones are "at least two to three years" away according to the trade, which makes sense considering the focus right now on "Star Wars." But if you need more Indy in your life, there is something (kinda) new right around the corner.

"Raiders Of The Lost Ark" hits Blu-ray for the first time tomorrow (and the other movies in the series have been re-issued too) and to help celebrate, Paramount has dropped the iconic boulder scene from the film. Feel like a kid again and watch below.
