: Hard to believe it's 2005- the year that was the 'worst case scenario' for Indy 4's release!! And I remember when a 1995 release felt like they might be waiting too long to complete it! :)
There was a point not too long ago when we were all sure that Indy IV would either start filming in 2005 or be in theaters by 2005, providing Lucasfilm with the considerable one-two punch of Indy IV and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
The best time for an Indy IV to have hit theaters would've been in the late 1990's, particularly in 1999, as Indymania was at an all-time high among the Indyfans back then (both because of Indy's fictional 100th birthday in 1999, and because of the George Lucas hype preceding the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace). The early-1990's suffered from too much political-correctness in the air for a proper Indiana Jones film (it's no coincidence that there were no James Bond films during that era either), while the last few years have had Harrison Ford getting older than before. :(
Oh well - hopefully we'll only have to wait one more year. :)
