Disney does own Indiana Jones, too. What would they do with it? Well, there are a variety of ways in which they can use the character in films, cartoons, TV shows, comics and at their theme parks. They could go the Young Indy route again and tell untold tales of his early years. Or they might use him in cartoons; Disney XD has already been mentioned as the future home of Star Wars cartoon series. (Joey Q and Loeb are drooling at the prospect of another series to destroy.)

A rebooted film series might be anathema to some fans but I wouldn't rule that out in the long term. Huge media conglomerates are not above trashing classic characters in the search for returns on their investments.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
