Lucas Talks Indiana Jones 4 and Expectations
25/03/08, 4:44pm EST

Keeping with the sentiment that he has been expressing since his interview with the January issue of Vanity Fair, Star Wars and Indiana Jones co-creator, George Lucas, reiterates that fans might not be to thrilled with Indy's return. Having had so much anticipation for the return of a cinematic franchise is nothing new to Lucas, who vividly recalls much of the backlash from "fans" back in 1999, when Star Wars returned with Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

But before Indy fans the world over reach for their bullwhips and pulls their fedoras down over their ears and think this is blasphemy, hear him out. The man behind some of the most imaginative, story telling in the last thirty years is just telling it like it is. It's entertainment. As the Ham Salad character said in the Star Wars spoof Hardware Wars back in 1978 told Fluke Starbucker; "Relax kid, it's only a movie".

By Scott Bowles for USA TODAY:
"When you do a movie like this, a sequel that's very, very anticipated, people anticipate ultimately that it's going to be the Second Coming," Lucas says. "And it's not. It's just a movie. Just like the other movies. You probably have fond memories of the other movies. But if you went back and looked at them, they might not hold up the same way your memory holds up."
The remarks appear to be part of a larger strategy to build interest yet temper expectations for the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. Only one trailer is playing, and when director Steven Spielberg shows up for talk shows, he doesn't bring footage.
Lucas says he learned his lesson about unrealistic expectations when he revived the Star Wars franchise in 1999. "When people approach the new (Indiana Jones), much like they did with Phantom Menace, they have a tendency to be a little harder on it," he says. "You're not going to get a lot of accolades doing a movie like this. All you can do is lose."
Except when it comes to money. Analysts expect it to rake in well more than double its reported budget of $125 million. But Lucas says that doesn't hold much sway for him, Spielberg and Harrison Ford.
"We came back to do (Indy) because we wanted to have fun," he says. "It's not going to make much money for us in the end. We all have some money. … It would make a lot of money if you weren't rich. But we're not doing it for the money."
It's fan and critic reaction for which the team is bracing, but Lucas says he has quit trying to appeal to everyone. "It was really a blast" to make. "And it turned out fantastic. … I like to watch it."
Lucas concedes that it will be impossible to water down expectations, even among fellow filmmakers.
The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan met Lucas at the ShoWest convention this month and says he's impatient to see the competition. "Come on, he's George Lucas," Nolan says. "I felt like I should have kissed the ring."
