: Hi Friends-
: Do any of u know if Rick McCallum mentioned anything regarding Indy 4 in the latest Star Wars Insider?
McCallum doesn't mention Indy 4 at all, though that's probably because the interviewer didn't ask anything Indy related. The only Indy related item was an angry letter to the editor from a fan criticizing the lack of Indy coverage. According to the Insider, this is because there is no official information at this time. Once Lucas announces Indy 4, and begins preproduction the Insider will cover Indy. I think we have to remember that the Insider is the offcial magazine for Lucasfilm, and therefore they print exactly what Lucas wants. Right now he is trying to promote the prequel and isn't going to dilute any attention away from his baby with Indy 4. Sad but true. Honestly, I wouldn't expect any worthwhile Indy news out of that magazine until after the release of the prequel. Then, when Lucas is riding the financial windfall from the prequel, we will get the "surprising" announcement of Indy 4, which will then take away public attention from pre-production of the second prequel film. Nobody ever said Lucas was dumb.
