Disney swallowed Lucasfilm over a year ago for the Star Wars franchise.
Now, Disney acquired the rights for another Lucasfilm property, the highly valuable Indiana Jones franchise. Disney and Paramount have reached an official agreement that gives Disney control over all future films in the franchise. Paramount retains rights to the first four films, and will receive a “financial participation” on any future films that are produced and released.
This clears the way for a new fifth installment, it may be another sequel or may be a reboot.
Two of the most beloved movie series of all times now belongs to Disney. There are great possibilities there if they respect those classics, I say.
