    I would venture to say that these dvd's are coming this year..... Probably around the same time SW Attack of the Clones makes it's debut.... Just a hunch...

    Martin,
    That may well be the best answer you've ever given on the HTF [​IMG]. I'm guessing Paramount only has so much control over Indiana Jones. Lucas and Speilberg will decide when these titles are to be released.
    I will say this much: These films weren't released to Widescreen VHS until after I was well into DVD, so I have not purchased them in Widescreen at all. Please make my DVD wishes come true!

    Theo:

    the US versions at least were not available until I was buying DVD only. I know for sure because right up until I bought my DVD player I was buying a widescreen video each week just to show my interest in the format. Indiana Jones would have been a no-brainer purchase for me. The only reason I would not have purchased it (as I remember) is that I only buy DVD now.

    I agree. Bad news is better than unfounded rumor. Thanks for the info.

    What is so bad about waiting another year?

    I'd rather see Paramount, Amblin, and Lucasfilm do it right rather than put out a boring set. Plus, Lucas has been busy with Episode II, Speilberg has 2 movies coming out this year...you get the idea.

    Plus, Amblin will be busy with the BTTF movies, E.T., and others. Lucasfilm will be busy with the Episode II DVD...

    Good things are worth waiting for, IMO.

    John, that's bad. [​IMG] I actually thought about it and realised that Indiana Jones set must have been available over here since about 1993 or 1994. It's very nice - a yellow box done out like an old map with locations from all three movies on it (some spelt incorrectly!!) and containing the three movies plus the Making Of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    I have a feeling though, that the making of disappointed me due to not having the bit where someone (Spielberg/Lucas?) screams at the snake that it's supposed to be afraid of fire!! I know I saw that in a 'making of' on TV once...
    Martin: If you're still reading, what is the position on the Young Indy series? I really want this on DVD too...
    Cheers.

    I totally agree with David. As he said, we were just talking about this at work yesterday!
    Martin, please know that we all appreciate your truthfulness on this. It's sometimes difficult to wait because we LOVE these films... but ultimately, most of the members here would rather wait than plunk down for a poor product. Witness Paramount's release of NextGen -- sure, there are a couple more extras that would've been nice, but what we got has been WELL worth the time it took to get! (HINT: PLEASE do as much justice with Deep Space Nine![​IMG] )
    As long as the Indy releases are "done right", you'll get our bucks!

    We movie freaks have a lot to look forward this year, both theatrically and on DVD. Part of me (a small part) is kind of happy to wait. Easier on my wallet that way... [​IMG]
    Thanks for letting us know something either way, Martin!
