Disney has just announced that Indiana Jones 5 is now official. Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will return for the fifth Indiana Jones film. Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will return as producers. George Lucas is not involved in this sequel. Back in December 2015 Spielberg confirmed that no other new actor will be playing Indy in the upcoming movies.
“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.”
The movie release date is now scheduled for July 19, 2019.
