    SPY REPORT: Indy DVD Documentaries
    Tue, Apr 29, 03 12:24:24 AM EDT

    We love Star Wars more than anything else, but other Lucas franchises like Indy always get us excited. Up tonight are some rumors about the Young Indy franchise arriving on DVD. Weed supplies our info tonight from the inside:
    LucasFilms plans to release the films in one big shot in 2005 so there are 4 teams of producer/researchers working with editors who are going to create ONE HUNDRED-TWENTY (120) separate mini-docs on the varied historical figures that were portrayed in the series. First up: Teddy Roosevelt. Being created and cut on the Ranch.
    No word yet on the length of each of these but historians and experts are being interviewed all over the country to be cut into the historical footage and stills of each figure. FASCINATING that LucasFilm wants to educate as well as entertain!

    This is fab news and with the news of at least 120 mini docs, would be an awesome set

    That is a long wait, but it's exciting. I've never seen a single Young Indy, and I'm itching to try.

    Were these made in 16x9? Or was it way to early for that? I'll be happy if they are 1.33, but Indy seems to call out for a wider ratio.

    I really loved watching young indy when it aired. This will be a real treat when it finally is released. I wonder what format they will use for the dvd's will it be broadcast episode form OR will they use the re-edits they did for the vhs combining episodes to form like 20 something full length movies.

    It was 1.33:1.

    And it'll be the re-edited versions.

    Theforce.net is known for really $hitty rumors...most recently the IJ rumors.

    Some of those re-edits are horrible. Sean Patrick Flannery sometimes wearss the most ridiculous make-up so that he can bridge 2 episodes together.

    And keep in mind, it was always Lucas' dream to have these movies work as an educational tool. This news/rumor is not surprising at all. He's been taling about this sort of thing for years.
