If DAK was organized by zoological orders I would say Indy would not fit. But since DAK is organized by geographical regions, I fail to see how temple ruins would be breaking theme. A lot of DAK is already temple ruins.
Ding, ding, ding! You hit it right on the head.Jungles, forests, savannahs, ancient ruins are not a theme...they are a place. They exist as a setting to tell a story related to the theme. When you are exploring ideas like the conservation of nature, obviously nature and animals will take a front seat in the story. And that is why Pandora works both thematically and is visually cohesive.
Visually Indy is almost a perfect fit (if you are considering existing Disney IPs). That for me is not enough.
Expand Cretaceous Trail with a reptile house and bird exhibit and give me a digsite rollercoaster with enough thrill to draw crowds and I see it being very successfulI'd rather they keep Dinosaur, plus it, and replace C&H with something better with a Dino theme....
Modern day, nothing.Yes. But I really have a hard time with Indy turning into some type of Jurassic Park employee. He's an archaeologist and professor, and from the (relatively) modern day.
Geography is not a man-made concept. Different animals live in different places.If DAK was organized by zoological orders I would say Indy would not fit. But since DAK is organized by geographical regions, I fail to see how temple ruins would be breaking theme. A lot of DAK is already temple ruins.
Michael Eisner doesn't work there any more.“Welcome to a kingdom of animals... real, ancient and imagined: a kingdom ruled by lions, dinosaurs and dragons; a kingdom of balance, harmony and survival; a kingdom we enter to share in the wonder, gaze at the beauty, thrill at the drama, and learn.” - Michael Eisner
And here we go again with "We Wants The Redhead!"Indy could run across a paleontologist in the jungle who needs help. And saving. Because she's pretty. And she needs to be mansplained how dangerous it is to be in the jungle alone. And to do her job.
On second thought...
