I just hope they don't jip us by pulling a star trek original series (only one or two episodes a disc, and each disc at 20$ each), I'd much rather buy these in season sets.
If any show merits a TOS-like release, though, it's Young Indy - Lucas plans (and has always planned) to include a lot of supplemental material, and because of the way Young Indy was shot (on location all around the world, using local crews), it might make more sense to treat episodes as seperate releases.
VB: What is the latest word on Indiana Jones 4, and will you be involved in all the DVD versions of those movies and the TV shows?
McCallum: I think [Indiana Jones 4] will be 2005. We're going ahead with the Young Indiana Jones DVDs; we are so committed to those. Even though the series wasn't a major hit here, it was a huge hit in the rest of the world. It's such a great opportunity, because what we're going to try to do is produce historical documentaries about each of the historical characters. It's a way of giving it to a school and saying, "Look, we know how hard it is to teach children. Try and use this as a tool. Let them see something that is fun for them and easy for them to watch." Hopefully, they can pick something that they can start to learn and watch another documentaries about the person and start to see them in the historical time.
We're having really great, great speakers talk about the time, what it means to fall in love--one episode featured Indiana learning how to make love with Mata Hari, slowly. And, you know, what it's like to be a spy, what it was like to be a woman at that time, what does it mean to make love and how does that affect social and historical issues.
It will probably take three or four years to get it done. We're hiring some really great documentary filmmakers.
