Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately Speilburg refuses to do commentary, and frankly, I think Ford would decline as well
Indy will not be out until Lucasfilm decides it will, but strong rumors indicate Christmas 2002

Well, since George Lucas is doing a commentary track for The Phantom Menace DVD, perhaps there is some hope.(Probably no Spielburg though.)

I want these films. I hope every HTF member signs this thread. There is no excuse not to have the films on DVD!

I've been itching for these titles for YEARS in Widescreen - but skipped over the VHS releases as I had my first DVD player when they finally arrived. Now I want them in anamorphic widescreen, with special features. Hopefully they'll arrive before I start itching for them on HD-DVD.

Here is one of the earlier threads on Indy and what fans want on the releases. I can't find the others.

Paramount are definately aware of all these threads and our wants. I'm sure that when it arrives it will KICK ASS big time. Personally, I'd love a retrospective documentary with George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Kate Capshaw, Sean Connery, John Rhys Davies etc etc and the old 'Making of..' docs as well.

I am venturing to guess that these are on a 'planned release schedule' and will only come out when the right day comes up on the calendar.
Yes, you can add me on too, but I do want the YIJC too. If you can permit me to ask a stupid question, though.
If a date has been selected already, what harm would it be to release this date to the public? This would go for all other titles too. If a movie had a scheduled release date, we could let the manufacturer's know what we wanted/expected on the DVD's, and they would have time to plan things out, or let us know why certain items will not be included, due to song rights or whatever.

That's simple: Things change. Anything can happen, and if anyone announces a title too far out, if the status changes, people will be up in arms about delays or features that dissapear. A studio wants to be locked in before they make announcements.
Also, marketting knows what kind of window should exist between public awareness, an announcement, advertising, and delivered product. Any change the that formula can inhibit sales.

Despite the apparent redundancy of this thread (as Paramount is most definately aware of the intense desire for the Indiana Jones films on DVD), I will still register the fact that I want these on DVD, too. However, those "menus" and "covers" are decidedly fake for so many reasons (no Paramount Widescreen Collection banner, no chapter numberings in the the scene selection area, it's not "Scenes" Selection, storyboards aren't used as artwork on back covers, Ark-work??? groan). But still, it's nice to dream.
(My apologies if these were never purported to be real, and were always labeled as fan artwork, and I somehow missed it.)

I agree that this thread is pretty redundant (ever heard of a little thing called patience?), but I'd like to mention that both the RAIDERS and TEMPLE OF DOOM discs should include the hour-long "Making of" documentaries that were aired on PBS not long after the films' release(s). THE MAKING OF RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK was released on VHS and LD around the time LAST CRUSADE came out on VHS (early 1990) but are now long out of print, but the MAKING OF INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM has gone unseen since its last PBS airings in 1985. They would make for perfect additions since they include much material of the actual shooting of the films themselves.

Not entirely true. I saw "Temple of Doom" special on my local PBS station about the time "Last Crusade" was making it out onto VHS. Still a helluva long time though and it would be nice to see both documentaries whenever these films make it to DVD.

John, I see your point. However (you knew this was coming, didn't you?), if Raiders was scheduled for 2002, couldn't they say tenatively scheduled for next year? Or say 2003 and maybe we'd all be surprised when it came out early. I can easily name a hundred other movies I like to have, and it's driving me nuts!
MGM did a fine job of announcing last year what their new titles were for early this year, and it was great. If something should happen to hold a movie up, they could let us know and select a new year.

Just voicing support to the cause that I want my INDY!!!!
Seriously, I'm sure that Lucasfilm/Paramount will do a bang-up job with the Jones Trilogy.
