Do not fill this in!===Background=== In 1979, [[Steven Spielberg]] and [[George Lucas]] made a deal with [[Paramount Pictures]] for five films related to the adventures of [[archaeologist]] [[Indiana Jones]].<ref>''[[The Complete Making of Indiana Jones]]'', Chapter 1: "The Name is Indiana: 1968 to February 1980", p. 36</ref> Following the release of ''[[Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade]]'' in [], Lucas let the film series rest as a trilogy as he felt he could not think of a good plot device to drive the next installment, and chose instead to produce ''[[The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles]]'' for television, leaving two of his optional sequels unmade. While working with [[Harrison Ford]] as they filmed his guest appearance on the show, however, Lucas saw the potential of films featuring an older Indiana Jones and developed the idea into what eventually took shape as ''[[Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull]]''.<ref>''[[The Complete Making of Indiana Jones]]'', Chapter 11: "Atomic Ants from Space: May 1989 to June 2007", p. 231–247</ref> Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Indiana Jones Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Indiana_Jones_5"
