If anyone knows what’s going on with the universes of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm, it’s the CEO of all of Disney, Bob Iger. In a new interview, Iger said he expects to make more Indiana Jones movies after part 5... but that may or may not include Harrison Ford.

“Right now, we’re focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort,” Iger told the Hollywood Reporter in an extended interview. He seemed a bit confused about what the words mean.

“Well, we’ll bring [Harrison Ford] 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.”

Iger then said, while he doesn’t expect Indiana Jones to be as large of a franchise as Star Wars, they will make more than just the one film. “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.”

Cutting through all of that, basically Iger said this: They’re making Indiana Jones 5 with Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg. That’s the “continuum.” From there, they’ll try a “reboot,” or at least “more” Indiana Jones films.

Don’t reboot it Bob, just do what the original plan was. Make him like the American James Bond. New actors. No explanation, it just is. Let the actors give it a couple of movies, then move on.
