    I would like The Rocketeer franchise to come back. ILM could do wonders. Maybe Lucas can consider the early Disney idea of a tv series? Too bad Disney made the terrible decision to go up against WB's Batman :p

    Rocketeer was great kind of like Indiana Jones. I don't remember there being a Rocketeer TV show.

    Jurassic Park was a monumental achievement.

    "I don't remember there being a Rocketeer TV show."

    This was likely before you were born. It was an old TV serial.

    I was too young to see King of the Rocket Men I did buy Innovation Comics' cool limited series and bought the old serial tapes at Suncoast. There was news from Disney that a tv spinoff was to have been greenlighted but since the movie didn't do as well as planned (Batman) they deep-sixed it altogether. And Dave Stevens is still understandably a bit miffed at the suits in Disney. Rocket Ranger was a cool comic but not as great as Dave Stevens' work.
