Earlier this year, “Indiana Jones 5” was announced by Disney, coming in 2019. Harrison Ford will of course be returning to play Indiana Jones, with Stephen Spielberg directing once again.
Recently Spielberg announced, “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end of it.” This caused a lot of buzz that this was a small hint towards more Indiana Jones movies, past the fifth.
This rumor received some more confirmation by Disney CEO Bob Iger, who in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter said that they are “focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort,” continuing on, “Well, we’ll bring him back, then we have to figure out what comes next.”
When asked in the interview straight out if he thought there would be more Indiana Jones films, Iger confirmed, “Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won’t be just a one-off.”
This is very exciting news! It will be interesting to see if there could possibly be Indiana Jones stories, or anthology movies, as Star Wars is beginning to do with December’s release of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” as well as with the upcoming young Han Solo movie. “Indiana Jones 5” will be released July 19, 2019.
