Indiana Jones

ILM President Lynwen Brennan, speaking during the “Lucasfilm: The Art of Storytelling” presentation at Star Wars Celebration Europe this weekend, teased that the Lucasfilm story group’s work not just on Star Wars’ vast universe, but seemingly also Indiana Jones’ as well:

Kiri [Hart] and her group have mapped out a story and timeline across multiple platforms many years in advance, many EXHAUSTING years in advance. … We have a great honor to have responsibility for, so we want to be really careful with that. Not only for Star Wars but with Indiana Jones, which we’re all really excited about as well.

Now, there’s a chance that Brennan is specifically talking about Star Wars when talking about Kiri Hart’s work with the story group, but the mention of Indiana Jones as well seems to indicate that Lucasfilm and Disney have big plans for the action-adventure series well beyond Indiana Jones 5.
