Indiana Jones trilogy to be released over span of 3 years (Spy Report)

The following was posted at TheForce.net as a "spy report," so take it as you will:

SPY REPORT: Indy DVD Update
Tue, Apr 22, 03 10:06:06 PM EDT

Our insider Teabags spreads some Indiana Jones DVD goodness to the fans in tonight's SPY REPORT. Production on the DVD is pressing ahead as we speak, here's an update to what we know:

From what I’ve gathered from other internet news sources, Lucasfilm is doing a major overhaul to the original films in terms of image quality. But what I know hasn’t been seen on the net yet. Basically what you need to know is that the movies will be interactive – it wont be mandatory during film viewing, but you will have the option of learning more about the people and places depicted in various scenes. For instance, when Indy is in Cairo, you can stop to learn more about Northern Africa during the 1930s.
And I’ve also read rumors on other news sites that the DVDs wont be released as a trilogy, but one at a time over the next three years, with Raiders set to be released by Christmas 2003. I know the only "information stops" that have been worked on so far are related solely to places Indy went in Raiders of the Lost Ark, so I would presume that this release schedule is correct.

I'll get more, so stay tuned.
Great stuff - sounds like a fantastic DVD!

So this is a rumor about a rumor? It may be true, but I don't put a lot of stock in it.

Yeah. I've been expecting for too long I've almost lost my hope. I won't buy any rumor until there's an official announcement.

I tend to still stick with the rumor that all three will be released at once based on the ad someone found that they posted on TheDigitalBits. Well, anyway, I'm just glad these will be coming finally.

I think Im just going to wait until they make a mega-ultimate boxset for all 4 movies later. I will just have my VHS until then.

Seriously though, just get them out so we can see Indy in all his OAR goodness with a remixed DD5.1-DTS-ES platform!

If this rumor is true, it sounds like a stupid release plan. Another format could be available before all 3 films get released on DVD. And I can't stand Infinifilm type stuff on my DVDs. When I watch a movie, I don't want to jump away to interviews or making-of segments. I prefer to watch them separately, after the movie.

This was the original rumor, then was supplanted by the box-set rumor, now to be replaced by the original. All we need are a couple thousand more rumors and release announcements cancelled and we can have another BTTF.

Selling them seperately is great (I hate the Godfather Trilogy because I don't want them all). But releasing them 1 year at a time would suck. I doubt they'll do this. Just a rumor.

Not when there's a number 4 in the works.

they are making slight adjustments, like removing the snake's reflection when indy falls into the well of souls.

I didn't know they were doing Indy 4??..Isn't Harrison Ford a little to old to be running around saving the world with a whip??

I barely got through believing Sean Connery as his father in Indy 3

Yep.

I will believe it when I see it. I am still not convinced it is even coming this year at all.
