Indiana Jones and the Reboot: Without Indy

https://www.thebinarytrend.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/indiana_jones.jpg

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is one of the first movies I can really remember watching with my mom (besides Alien, and my dad wasn’t too thrilled with that one). The Indian Jones franchise was made and released before I even turned four, yet these were staples for me growing up. Then in 2008, Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came out, which…let’s put it frankly, went way, way, way, left field with some things, but it was still enjoyable to a point. Since the release of the last movie, there has been a is there, or isn’t there debate regarding a new sequel, and with the success of Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, the world is pretty begging Chris Pratt to be the new Indy.

New reports, however, are stating that when and if the next installment(s) is made, they won’t be going the James Bond route and recasting Indy, but going with a new title character to continue the franchise in the reboot.

Now, I for one don’t want to see an origin series, as it’s kind of already been done in the 1990s with The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

I would love to see the franchise come into the 21st century, and I have my own thoughts as to how they should do it. For the sake of this article, the new guy will be named Jared.

Jared could be a grad student, an aid, or even a professor. We find him in an old storage area, going through boxes to clean up and comes across a diary written by none other than Indy himself, detailing his adventures. And inside, Jared finds a sort of to do list, places and things Indy never got to do in his older days. After reading through the diary, Jared gets that excitement to get up and go on one of these adventures (and the rest in future movies), and hijinks and amazing thrills ensue.

Bumping it up to the 21st century, however, would mean no chance of seeing the real Indy again, because he’s be like 115 years old (having been born in 1899). The same story could also be said and done in the 60s even, with awesome long hair, wide legged pants and all that grooviness.

Whatever they decide to do, I’m sure it will be fantastic and fun. I just hope the conspiracy theory/aliens stay away.

What do you think? With confirmation of them not recasting Mr. Jones,  how would you like the series played out? Let us know in the comments!
