let Spielberg put out each film on separate DVDs, then after Indy 4 is released in say 2006 put out a bonus DVD with addiction extras (ie what Universal did with Jurassic Park, they released each JP film alone then put out a box set after JPIII plus a bonus disc) Just a suggestion

I agree. The fact that Paramount doesn't have this out, and Fox doesn't have the Star Wars trilogy, all I can say is, they're certifiable. These would be the biggest selling DVD's ever.

Ok. you guys are faily new to the forum here is the reality about Star Wars and Indiana Jones... Paramount and Fox have no control of when these will be released, they only distribute the films. Lucasfilm own all copyrights to these films. They control when, and if, these will be released on DVD. Daniel L

Since the only one I care to own is Raiders of the Lost Ark, separate releases would also be my preference.

Obviously, Lucas would rather keep these films off DVD until everyone who saw them is in the nursing home and no longer able to remember them. Posted Image

You'd think he and Spielberg would learn from the latter's experience with E.T. Yep, it was real smart of him to "build demand" with a multi-year moratorium on THAT one.

Daniel, James' starting post was in response to an article in the WSJ (discussed in this thread). It was an interview with Spielberg in which he stated that he and Lucas want to release the movies separately, then later follow up with a re-packaging of all as a set. Paramount apparently wants to do a single boxed set with all three only.

I too would prefer individuals. As long as they are done as special editions, and the eventual boxed set is, in fact, just a re-packaging.

They could do them like GREASE, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and URBAN COWBOY were done. Buy em individually, or buy em all at a slight savings over the 3 individual prices.

I agree with Indiana jones, it should come out soon. As far as Star wars goes, I don't think we'll get episode 4,5 and 6 until Episode 3 is release. Maybe a 6 dsc set, possibly?

Please remember to be polite in this area, people. This is not a good place to insinuate bootleg product. On topic, I personally don't care if the Indy Trilogy is released seperately or as a box since I want all 3, but from other peoples point of view, I can see why it would be a good idea to release them seperately. I just wish that Paramount and Spielberg/Lucas could get along, so at least we see these on DVD in one form or another within the next couple of years.
