With a fourth sequel on the way and the franchise returning to gaming via Lucasfilm Games, to mention nothing of the 40th anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark this May, Paramount Plus will be the new streaming home of the first four entries in the Indiana Jones series (the fifth film is coming from Disney and Lucasfilm rather than Paramount).
Paramount Plus will stream classic content like all four Indiana Jones movies (though the fifth, currently in development, is in Lucasfilm and Disney’s hands), as well as new originals like The Offer, a scripted series about the making of The Godfather – and that trilogy will also be streaming on the new service. Paramount Plus will also be home to the Star Trek franchise, including new series like Lower Decks and Discovery.
The use of the term ‘Plus’ notwithstanding, the 4th March rebrand from CBS All-Access elevates the streamer internationally, with Paramount Plus also including Nickelodeon, MTV, BET and Comedy Central, for a total of some 30,000 titles. CBS All Access has between 8-9 million subscribers, and will launch internationally.
ViacomCBS said Paramount Plus would launch in the Nordics on March 25 and Australia in mid-year. The Canadian version of CBS All Access will rebrand as Paramount Plus on March 4 but the expanded content lineup will become available later in the year.
No news yet on where the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles will be, but given it’s original home was on the Disney owned ABC Network, it would be logical to assume that home to be Disney Plus.
