Rumor Is Indiana Jones Planning an Adventure to Disney's Animal Kingdom?

If they want to put Indy in AK, I am sure they will find a way to make it fit. Plus- who know what the plot of the latest Indy will be? Indy meets dinosaurs? Disney will think of something....

In principle, I wouldn't have much of a problem with a South America (for example) land at DAK that had appropriate animals and nature themes with proper placemaking and having that land have an Indiana Jones ride as part of it. I'm not so hardcore that I feel that every single thing in DAK has to explicitly revolve around animals.

That said, I think my main issue is sacrificing a dinosaur area to get that -- dinosaurs and paleontology deserve a place in the park and the park needs expansions, not replacement.

Right there with you on this.

I have not been able to confirm this current info, but the unverified rumor mill is saying yes to Indy but not the big S. Am. pitch. Dinos staying. And Dinorama gets replaced with a new version of the Excavator coaster.

That leaves the Shanghai PotC ride system still up in the air.

So an upgraded dino E Ticket slathered in a popular IP and a coaster. Why does this plan sound so familiar?

is there any chance in the world this could be done around(ish) the time star wars land opens? if so I could see the appeal, otherwise they're gonna end up with another park with 5 rides, which is obscene.

Out of curiosity with all of this, Disney is making a new Indy movie, correct? Was it announced when that might be happening?

Wait so is Dino staying in it’s current form or is it having an IP integrated? And where exactly would Indy be going?

Does the whole Dinosaur ride going actually have any credibility? i just don't understand how they could remove something that's really quite popular, not to mention the whole dinosaur theme... I thought Animal Kingdom was all about exploring animals and species from past, present, and fiction/fantasy

Unless they have some kind of indiana jones/lost continent thing going on where he comes across a land filled with dino's?

There's quite a large area in animal kingdom that's crying out for a new land, i was hoping Indy would go there with a south american theme...

I think Mission Breakout clearly sent a message that nothing is safe anymore.

Now this I can get behind. It sounds like an enhancement for Dinosaur (if done right), a removal of C+H, and a new rollercoaster. Dinosaur needs a ton of love anyway. This could be a way to do that and introduce a new story that works with AK. What's not to like? (Again if done right).

Honestly asking here.
