Harrison Ford And Steven Spielberg Return For Indiana Jones 5 In Winter 2019 

Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg Return for Indiana Jones 5 in Summer 2019

Indy is coming back. Disney just announced that Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will return to one of their most famous franchises as Indiana Jones 5 opens on 19 July 2019. Spielberg will direct, Ford will star, Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy will produce. The official press release from Disney has no mention of co-creator George Lucas, who sold Disney rights to the character in 2012 along with Star Wars.

"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 of The Walt Disney Studios, in a news release. "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."

For the past several years, Spielberg and Ford have reiterated they wanted to come back to the series. There had also been lots of talk about a possible recasting. Whether or not this fifth film will set the table for that, we don't know, but the Indy of old will be back at least one more. And we're excited to have him.

Just cross your fingers for no flying monkeys.

    In this instalment, Indy IS one of the mummified relics buried deep within a tomb stuck in a washing machine after hiding from a cave collapse, only to be discovered by bright young students with alien powers on their field trip of the old earth.

      That would still have been a better movie than Crystal Skull.
      Actually to be honest that sounds like something I would watch. :)

    "and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019"
    Will he live that long?

    There had also been lots of talk about a possible recasting. Shia LaBeouf? Or are we just pretending that one didn't happen?

      Who's Shia LeBeouf?
      Yeah I thought it was strange that they're jumping from Indiana Jones and the last Crusade to "Indy 5".... the 5 might have something to do with the new movie.... maybe "V" marks the spot.

    Please, no aliens - no movie should ever end like that (looking at you, Knowing).

    How is it 5... There has only been 3 movies :)

    It might turn out to be watchable if George Lucas is kept well away from this one.

    Indiana Jones and The Quest for Hip Replacement

    while i'm uncerain of how an aging Harrison ford can still look believable in an action adventure film, i have faith in Spielberg so if they think it can be done then i'm onboard with it.

      Please. They could make Betty White kick Norris' ass these days.

    Please leave Shia le Boof and the ET shit out of it.

      But you'd be happy to have oogie boogie crap from the other 3? Please!

    Break a leg harrison!

      He's been there and done that.... literally! The studio is being taken to court for it in the UK if memory serves.
