There’s a running joke in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that Indy took his nickname from the family dog. That joke has some truth to it though because as George Lucas was developing Raiders of the Lost Ark, he actually named the character after his dog, Jones (the “Indiana” was a riff on Steve McQueen character Nevada Smith). Coincidentally, the same dog was the inspiration for Chewbacca in Star Wars. Need more Raiders of the Lost Ark facts?

Even though Ridley Scott’s been talking up this Blade Runner sequel for some time now, it was still uncertain whether or not Harrison Ford would return to reprise the iconic role of Rick Deckard in the new film. Now it looks like Han Solo isn’t the only iconic role Ford is reprising. In addition to the return of Ford, Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve has been tapped to helm the sequel, based on a script co-written by original Blade Runner scribe Hampton Fancher.

A little over a month ago we saw the first trailer for The Age of Adaline, the new romantic drama that, at first glance, seems like it could be a bit schmaltzy. But with a great cast and the skills of director Lee Toland Krieger (Celeste and Jesse Forever), The Age of Adaline looks like it could be rather surprising.

Disney has been rather busy as the studio prepares to launch the next series of ‘Star Wars’ films. But there’s another beloved franchise starring Harrison Ford that they’re still keeping in mind: ‘Indiana Jones,’ of course. The last new ‘Indiana Jones’ film was released in 2008, and given the underwhelming critical response to ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,’ we figured that might be the end of Jones. We were wrong.
