  • Hi Vetinari,


    I read your question at the history page of Indiana Jones Miniland, and I have an answer. Indiana Jones Miniland was to not be Lost Expedition, because Lost Expedition was to be build at California's Disneyland, while Indiana Jones Miniland (which was presumably a working title) was used for the complex which was planned to be build at Disneyland Paris. At first, I also thought that there were the same thing, but I checked the unbuilt Disney attractions at Wikipedia and verified that it wasn't the same thing.

    Additionally, I wanted to recommend you of create templates for events like battles, wars and skirmishs. You probably know, the text charts which says conflicts, dates, places, outcomes, factions, commanders, participants and casualties. Many examples can be seen at Wookieepedia or at the POTC Wiki. I think that POTC Wiki's Templates can serve much as an example for potential Indy Templates as unlike Star Wars, that franchise is based on historical things.


    Thanks,

    • Problem with a template for historical events is that they're difficult to source. Most Indy stories don't go into enough detail.

      But at least, we could make Templates for the events of the films, from which we have details aplenty. P.D.: I found osme Iron Phoenix information, you can check it to see if it's good or not.

  • Hi Vetinari. This question doesn't serve for the Wiki, but I need your advice.

    I'm writing some Indiana Jones comics set between Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and I want to propose it to Disney as a comic book series to publish while waiting Indiana Jones 5. I'm sure that any Indy fan would like them.

    However, I wanted to ask you this: Did you have some Indy comic? The thing that I need to decide is which amount of pages I will need to use for my stories, and as I don't have any Indy comic, I wanted to ask you this. If you hve one, I wanted to ask you if you can say to me your comic's amount of pages.

    Thank you!

    • US comics tend to be 144 pages for a six-issue arc but Disney/Lucasfilm are unlikely to accept unsolicited work (plus you probably have to be a Marvel professional these days).

    • Well, only fate will tell what would happen. Thanks anyway, hopefully, if I became professional, my Indy comics could be published to fill the gap between Crusade and Skull. I guarantee you that them would be of  your pleasantless as with the pleasantless of the other Wiki users.

  • Hi Vetinari,

    I wanted to ask you why the Indiana Jones and Star Wars Theory of Han Solo's dreams was put out from the Star Wars article. Also, I wanted to ask you if you could check my edits in the King Cool refrigerator article to see if it is good.

    Thanks! 

    P.D.: If you want to play the Cody Jones video games of Inkagames in order to verify my claims in the references to Indiana Jones list page you could enter with this link: www.inkagames.com. There is an option to play the games and see the page in English.

  • Hi Vetinari,

    After you and me talked about the possibility of the descanonization of the Expanded Adventures, I wanted to recommend that in case that Disney decides to construct a new canon but doesn't use a name for diferentiate the old EA works, the name that the users of the Wikia coudl use for the EA works could Chronicles, similarly to the term Legends of Star Wars. But hopefully, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles TV show (sans George Hall's Bookends), the Fate of Atlantis video game, and "The Sea Butchers" story of The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones (and with some hope, the entire comic series) would be mantained in continuity as Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar referenced them.

    On the other hand, I wanted to ask you this: The Batman: The Animated Series and the Pirates of the Caribbean references were cut because they weren't relevant? In addition, I was absent from the Wikia because I went to Cuzco, Perú in a study trip with my school promotion and I saw that many things of the culture contradict Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    • We'll likely just stick to calling them the Expanded Adventures in the absence of an official alternative.


      I took them out because they weren't direct references. Similar looking scenes aren't necessarily copying the Indy films.

  • Hi Vetinari,

    A question. Why my edits in the Behind the scenes section of Mola Ram were reverted. I know that maybe the Wilhelm scream paragraph was unnecessary, but the arcade section I didn't understand why it was deleted? I can put it again?

  • Hi Vetinari,

    I don't remember with accuracy, but I remember that there was an article at this Wiki in which it said that Nikita Khruschev was the one who gave Spalko and Dovchenko the mission to Akator. Also, it makes sense, as Crystal Skull is set in 1957, while Joseph Stalin passed away in 1953. Or this is an anachronism or Stalin is still alive at least in 1957 in the Indy universe.

    • It could easily be a mistake in the trading cards (which also say Mac was the Russian Suit that Indy punches during the Marshall campus chase). In-universe, it could be that the Crystal Skull mission, or a least part of it, took a few years to prepare.

      Looks like the user who created the Khrushchev page may have been talking about the junior novel rather than the adult adaptation, but guessing that Khrushchev assigned the mission because he was leader of the USSR at that time.

      I've taken it out until a source can back it up.

    • Well, I agree with you. Easily when Indy 5 is released, we could have an answer. But I had a doubt: I want to created the Bookends page, but my doubt is if the Bookends of Old Indy are still canon. I know thta Leland Chee said that are still canon in some degree, but when I checked his Twitter account and found the Tweet in which he said that the Expanded Adventures' canonicity has yet to be revealed, he also said that he doubts that an issue involving Indy's marriage with another woman than Marion is unlikely. That means that the Bookends and its character are not more canonical? You can ask him with this link: https://twitter.com/HolocronKeeper?

      P.d. Although I wish that the Bookends aren't canonical, if that is the case, I feel that George Hall's work in the Indy franchise was only a waste of time which ended up serving for nothing.

    • When he was asked about Old Indy on the former Star Wars forums, Chee said that the continuity of Old Indy is in "limbo" and he handn't been told to treat them as non-canon (which I think basically means they'll not be referenced anymore).

      What I think is that the bookends will only be definitively non-continuity is if they kill Indy off in Indy 5. Which Spielberg has said he will not do. And no films will be set after whenever Indy 5 take place but have a new actor having adventures between the 1920s and 1940s.

      I imagine the Expanded Adventures will go the same way as the Star Wars EU if they haven't already but, as Indy isn't as popular as Star Wars, they just won't announce it. ;) Most Indy stories tend to be standalone so big contradictions should be few and far between. The wiki will just have to write around them as required.

      If I'm remembering correctly, Lucas always intended to edit the Young Indy episodes into films afterwards so Old Indy was never meant to be anything more than an introduction to the episode. (It could explain why Lucas let George Hall play Indy how the actor wanted.)

  • Hi,

    Do pictures from historical figures, like Jabbo Smith or Johnny Dunn, need to come from the Indiana Jones universe, or could i use pictures from Wikipedia or other sources?

      Loading editor
    • They need to be Indy sources. Everything should be from an Indy source.

      When creating in-universe pages, please put the year the story is set in rather than the title of the book and use past tense. You're often saying Indy, for example, did something but not saying when he did it which is important. Not many people know about the books, especially the ones that weren't released in English, so write as much detail in each article as possible.

      Having a small number of thorough articles (eg.TheAlmanac's edits) is better than trying to make as many pages as possible. ;)

  • Hi Vetinari,

    I am writing you this message because I want to ask you two things.

    1. It could be possible to create a page for the rumors of Indy 5, like rumored cast, plots, etc.

    &

    2. You had The Complete Making of Indiana Jones? This last question would be very strange, but I want to ask you this because I would like to know if you could comment me the Menno Meyjes version of Last Crusade and the names of the early scripts of what became Crystal Skull (including Jeffrey Boam's version if possible)?

    Thank you very much!

    • No pages for unconfirmed, unofficial content.

      Last Crusade doesn't go through as many versions like Crystal Skull. There's the Monkey King stuff then Last Crusade, which goes by Indy III for a while. The 'making of' book doesn't give full scripts but highlights notable changes between versions.

    • Okay. Thank you!

    • You need to start reading edit summaries and category descriptions because you're ignoring what is being said in them.

        Loading editor
    • And stop using the Complete Making of book as a source when you haven't read it, or I'll have to treat it as a deliberate attempt to give out false information and start giving out bans.

  • Hello Vetinari,

    I would like to know why you delete certain information, especially on the pages Lincoln, Kao Kan, Ernst Vogel...


    Tell me if I can help you.


    Tanks.

    • Unless he's specifically called Lincoln that seems like a generic character to me. How can you tell when Lincoln's role is mainly that he's called Lincoln and is in the Hangar 51 scene?
