Understanding the forces behind Hollywood's influence - Publisher Recommended
On Monday, October 18th the Walt Disney Corporation announced they were pushing back the 2022 MCU slate, due to delays on "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness".
No movie was pushed back more than a couple of months; but there was one major outlier: James Mangold's as of yet untitled Indiana Jones sequel was pushed back a full year.
This delay is indicative of both major production trouble on the movie itself, as well as of a severe corporate schism and reshuffle behind the scenes of Lucasfilm and Disney. The latter matter is complex, but we are about to go through all the context behind it all.
In order to do so, we will begin this video by going through the players and competing interests involved. With that established, we can examine the Star Wars connection and then go through the battle over not just the direction of Indiana Jones, but of Disney as a whole.
