Indiana Jones 5 is a go; Gets an official release date

Disney have announced that a fifth Indiana Jones film is definitely happening and will be coming to cinemas on 19 July, 2019.

Harrison Ford will return as Indy, Steven Spielberg will be behind the camera, and Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce. Ford will reprise the role with Steven Spielberg as the director.

The statement adds that "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". Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

The Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn has widely acknowledged Indiana Jones and appreciated the diversity involved within the crew.

That' all we know presently.

At last we have the answer to that age old "How on earth did Disney get Harrison Ford to agree to do another Star Wars?" question!

To quote Short Round, "no time for love Doctor Jones".

After a ten-year hiatus, the "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" will finally have a sequel as the quest for archeology and ancient artifacts continue. It's the kind of thing people talk about in hushed whispers and with sad eyes - what the hell happened?

Conceptually, it would be easy. Let the torch be passed. That's the Lucasfilm/Disney way and so far, it's been pretty good to Star Wars.

He also reassured fans that Ford's hero will not meet his maker in Indiana Jones 5, saying: "I think this one is straight down the pike for fans". But also once again: whether this speculation sends chills down your spin or waves of dread through your heart probably depends on whether you're a pessimist or an optimist.
