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

Oh, internet. Is there no idea that you don't already have multiple images of?
Performing a similar search.... there is actually a published book called "Indiana Jones and the Dinosaur Eggs"... so I guess that begs the question... is Indiana Jones + Dinosaurs canon? Is it meant to be? (If so, the name of the attraction better not be Indiana Jones and the Dinosaur Eggs because I really think they could do better with regards to a name...)

Well, after seeing those pictures, its hard to argue Indiana Jones and Dinosaurs! /sarcasm

I think that Indiana Jones and the Lost World is the best name personally, though I am sure many would say its too close to a certain Jurassic Park sequel.

I don't get some of the hate for the Dinosaur ride. It isn't a classic and could use a refresh maybe but it's a fun experience with a solid story that it executes well enough. And this from someone who has never even seen the film. I wouldn't be heartbroken if it was ever replaced but I would not be a fan of forcing an IP that doesn't make sense in that park just to get rid of it.

I don't hate it, I just don't find it a solid Disney attraction. Seeker is annoying and cuts down on the drama. The majority of ride is wandering around looking; not a very compelling story. It just seems like the ride doesn't survive on its own, it constantly needs a narrator telling us what's going on so we care. "Remember, we're here to find that dino! Oh! There's a dino over there. Identify. Hmm, that's not our dino, we need to keep looking. Here's one. Oh, he's scary, drive away! Okay, here's another dino, not ours but at least this one isn't scary. Asteroids, move right, then left, then right..." Shut up and let the actions of the ride speak for themselves. And if they don't, fix it.

When they refurbed the ride last year, it would have been best to get a new film that tweaked the story a bit. They did it with Mission:Space, so I don't see why it can't be done to Dinosaur. It would have no effect on the ride system itself too.

I’ve had no specific news about possibly Indy at DAK using either shanghai tech nor Dinosaur. But that’s just me.
Last I had heard, Dinoland would receive updates but keep its dino theme with Indy possible at DHS. But things can and do shift rapidly. I would hope they place any potential Indy ride where it belongs and is needed. Dinosaur has flaws but the concept is perfectly fine. It wouldn’t be cheap to appropriately retheme.

I’ve heard similar.

Awesome, that’s the info I was hoping for. I think there can absolutely be a win-win situation if they go with this plan.
