Indiana Jones 5 is officially coming and here's what we know about it so far.
Our favorite archaeologist is set to hit the big screens next year with the last and the final installment in the Indiana Jones series. It’s been 12 years since the previous chapter in the Indiana Jones series came out, and it’s safe to say that it was a disappointment for the fans.
The fans are expecting a lot from the last part. The movie will likely give a proper farewell to the character in this final installment. There hasn’t been an official name revealed for the fifth installment, and therefore, the fans are calling it Indiana Jones 5 for now.
The plot details are limited when it comes to Indiana Jones 5. It has been confirmed by the President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, that the latest installment will not be a reboot but the next chapter in the Indiana Jones’ saga. Many sources have confirmed that the final part in the trilogy would be the continuation of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was the last installment in the series. There are no leaks as of yet, which suggests that Disney is keeping everything behind the walls and want the fans to experience the movie first-hand.
As of yet, only one cast member is confirmed, and that is, yes, you guessed it right, Harrison Ford. He is confirmed to return as Indiana Jones for the final time. Previously, there have been talks of replacing Ford with one of the avengers, Chris Patt, but the producer and writer of the movie both confirmed that Ford is not going to be replaced. It is no surprise that he is going to play in the last part, as Ford is the one who made what the character is today. There have been a lot of Batmans and James Bond, but there has been only one Indiana Jones, and that is our favorite Harrison Ford.
There is no confirmation regarding the other cast members.
At first, it was announced that Steven Spielberg would be directing the movie, but suddenly he backed out. The reason for his leaving is unknown. The fans are a bit upset about the fact that Spielberg wouldn’t direct the last installment of the movie. It is no denying that Indiana Jones wouldn’t be the same without Spielberg. He was there with the previous four installments, guiding Ford with his academy winning direction. Now, James Mangold is rumored to take over the direction for the upcoming installment.

Due to scripting issues, the initial June 2019 release was pushed back to July 2020, but even that didn’t stick. Disney changed the date again to July 2021. Well, now the 2021 release is pushed to July 29th, 2022, due to the Covid-19 situation going on in the world. For now, Disney is claiming that the movie will be released on the given date, but well, who knows.
As expected, there is no official trailer up till yet for the final installment. Due to the continuous delays, it can be assumed that there will be no trailer any time soon.
