The lack of George Lucas’ involvement with The Force Awakens has sparked an entire splinter group of Star Wars fans who are waging war against people who don’t hate what Disney is doing with the movies. This likely won’t happen with Indiana Jones fans as it sounds like Lucas will be involved with the fifth movie in the franchise.
This week Disney invited “mommy bloggers” to an event to see Spielberg’s The BFG and even had them do a Q&A with the director. During this event, Spielberg revealed that George Lucas will be involved with the fifth Indy movie. The Bearded Trio has the quote:
“George is gonna to be an executive producer on it with me. … I would never make an Indiana Jones film without George Lucas. That’d be insane.”
Hopefully this will calm the nerves of a group of fans who were getting nervous over Disney controlling another Lucas franchise without his involvement in any way.
