    @marni1971 Are these competing proposal options that you are referring to new builds or replacements of current attractions?

    KALI rapids, kali-ma, temple of doom, saving the stones (conservation), saving lives (don't let willie burn!), saving children from the stone mines... just spitballing all the conservation themed Indiana jones tie-ins to fit the purist DAK enthusiast.

    KALI-MA!

    Instead of getting rid of rides and adding things already done, they should be adding all-new rides. I would not want a clone of the Disney Land Indiana Jones, how about leave Dinosaur alone and add a new Indy dark ride/roller coaster (disney version of Gringots only thrilling) of the chase scene in Temple of Doom? Your in a mine car with lava under you, you feel the heat while being chased and you hear that awesome movie score throughout the ride.

    I agree with the addition of new rides being needed, but I've never cared for Dinosaur, or it's associated 'dino-land'. Dino itself is a snoozefest, whilst the rest of the carnival area was done on the cheap and feels very out of place for DAK. The kids play area is great, but the rest of it could be bulldozed for all I care. It's pretty lame.

    He wouldn't be this obvious right?

    In case people didn't know (like me, who just Wiki'd it), Djuan Rivers is the vice president of DAK and not the name of the place in which the picture was took. :)

    I laughed when I saw this on Insta. He's either hinting or trolling, not quite sure which.

    Maybe it's an Australia land with a couple of Indy rides.

    He and Djuan are taking a brocation, which is awesome.

    The head of each part of the company should be someone who naturally fits, not just any person with good managerial skills. When the VP of Animal Kingdom has done "halo jumps over Everest, cage-less shark diving, and marathons in Antarctica" you know the right guy is in the right place. Same for Joe Rohde, of course.

    None of the other parks have such qualified people in charge.

    Least of all Epcot. I don't think their VP is qualified for much of anything.

    Assuming they don't encounter any hungry locals.

    Or maybe he's just a wacky old man with too many holes in his head and he doesn't have a clue about this rumor and just pointed out the obvious fact that it's an old rickety bridge that looks like it's from a famous movie scene...

    Is there anyone in charge of the Indiana Jones portfolio for WDI the way Rohde is in charge of Marvel?

    Indiana Jones isn't important enough to have an individual "portfolio" or significant canon supervision on the scale of Marvel's Multiverse, Star Wars or even Cars.

    Why does cars need canon supervision? Seems like overkill.

    Because Cars is John's pet franchise and despite being the most undercooked Pixar setting, he takes it very seriously.

    Indiana Jones and the Lost Opportunity?

    Perhaps someone will realize the franchise's potential.
