IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Disney Now Owns ‘Indiana Jones’ Franchise


First Kermit the Frog, then Iron Man, then Darth Vader, and now Indy.

Indiana Jones

After first acquiring The Muppets, then Marvel Comics and most recently, Lucasfilm, Disney has been handed the rights of the Indiana Jones franchise from Paramount Pictures, according to Variety.

Which basically means, if you’re keeping score, Disney now owns every part of your childhood.

Paramount will still be in charge of the distribution for the first four “Indiana Jones” films, but now, Disney “gains distribution and marketing rights to future films, in addition to retaining the ownership rights it secured when it acquired Lucasfilm.”

Paramount will also receive financial participation regarding any future “Indiana Jones” films.

  1. My childhood just committed suicide… Guess it was only a matter of time before Paramount folded to the whims of the Mouse.

    • They bought Lucas Arts, which included this franchise! Paramount, had to hand over the franchise. Also, last time I checked, Disney was a major part of our childhood! And when did a new version or re-release change our childhood? Maybe, just maybe, you never grew up, still act like a child, and expect the world to never change. If that’s the case, grow up, move out of your parents basement, and get a job! The world changes, it always has, and people like you always complain about it changing. Besides, after the last movie, there is no way Disney can make it any worse! Unless they cast you in the staring role!
