Alerting Star Wars fans! On Tuesday June 27th, 2017, New York Times #1 best-selling Star Wars author Dr. David West Reynolds launched a 30-day KickStarter project to complete a video documentary called Journey to Tatooine: the Archaeology of Star Wars

This is the tale of Reynolds' real-life 1995 adventure to rediscover the lost Sahara desert filming locations of the original Star Wars movie (Episode IV: A New Hope). Succeeding beyond his wildest expectations, Reynolds found not only the shooting sites but abandoned set decor and props still sitting exactly where George Lucas and the Star Wars crew had left them some 20 years earlier untouched, and never visited by any fan before him.

Reynolds went on to become a popular Lucasfilm writer and speaker, and audiences all over the country have heard the story of "The Archaeology of Star Wars" in talks at museums, Comic Cons, and Celebrations. But the video footage of the expedition has been kept under wraps. Now an hour-long documentary is almost complete, awaiting only final post-production work to make the show ready for public release.

Reynolds is seeking help from friends and fellow Star Wars fans via a KickStarter project to fund the video completion work. The range of rewards for those who support the project include a map set and mini-posters, and even a bit of sand from Tatooine's Dune Sea. A preview video and plenty more information is available at the KickStarter project page.  The rewards feature some limited-edition trading cards available only to the first 100 project supporters.

Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will be reteaming for another Indiana Jones movie, set for release in July 2019. Here’s the announcement:

Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

Famed archaeologist and explorer Indiana Jones was introduced in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – one of AFI’s 100 Greatest American Films of All Time – and later thrilled audiences in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The four films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office.

The announcement didn’t indicate who might be writing the screenplay for the film, although they surely have top men (or women) working on it right now.
