Indiana Jones 4 Announced!

W00t! Lucas officially announced that production of Indiana Jones 4 will start in 2007. Finally! I won't believe it until I see it in the theaters though :)

My only worry is that they left it too long and some of the magic will be gone. Well, that and the fact that Harrison Ford is getting a bit long in the tooth compared to the young 'un he was in the original trilogy. I'm also worried that the new IJ will fall victim to the same thing that happened with the new Star Wars movies.... they weren't nearly as good as the old timers remembered the originals being (or thought we remembered them being anyway) and the kids didn't seem to have the history with the original trilogy to make the new trilogy (as) relevant. Course, the new Star Wars trilogy kinda sucked as well, which didn't help. Hopefully we wont' have Indy fighting hoards of computer generated characters (though for some reason I have a feeling we will, case in point a few of the scenes in Curse of the Golden Flower looked like the orc battles from LoTR...).
