Who Confirmed That 'Indiana Jones 5' Is Happening? 

Well, Harrison Ford is the one who claimed that the fifth installment is coming soon! Speaking with Variety, the 76-year-old said: “[It] should be starting to shoot sometime next year. I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “Things are coming along well." Disney announced its plans for Indiana Jones 5 back in 2016, however, it has been delayed twice to Summer 2021 release date. 



 

Not just Ford, but it was also reported that 'This Is Us' creator, Dan Fogelman has been hired to work on a different Indiana Script 5 than Kasdan's. Also, the fifth installment has always been talked about by various major players in the movies, including writer George Lucas, director Steven Spielberg and also Ford himself.

Earlier it was revealed that the movie will hit the theater at some point in July 2019, but then it was changed to July 10, 2020. However, in July 2018, Disney again pushed the release date by one year to July 9, 2021, as the production team had some script issues to deal with. This date was then confirmed after Disney released their huge new releases that are scheduled for early May, that also featured all the Fox movies that are yet to release. 

Will There Be New Faces In 'Indiana Jones 5'?

There is no doubt about Harrison Ford making his comeback for his legendary role. Producer Frank Marshall also made it clear that the role would not be recast for the new movie. As mentioned earlier, Ford who will turn 77 years old during the time of the film's production is already looking forward to being there in the movie and to go on an adventure spree with his hat one more time. In an interview, Ford did mention that he doesn't want anyone else to take his place as Indiana Jones. He said, “Nobody is gonna be Indiana Jones. Don't you get it? I'm Indiana Jones. When I'm gone, he's gone. It's easy.” John Rhys-Davis also showed his desire to reprise the character of Sallah, who first appeared in Raiders of the Lost Ark and then again in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.



 

He said, "Every time I see Spielberg, I say to him, 'Steven – the really successful films are the first and the third, but there seems to be something missing from two and four... I wonder what it is?' and he laughs!" He continued, "Of course, I would like to do another one – he's a great character – but I'd have him do something meaningful." However, we won't be seeing Marion Ravenwood who was Indy's love interest in Raiders and Crystal Skull. Karen Allen also was not contacted for the fifth installment in 2017, when it was announced. We also won't be seeing Shia LaBeouf who played Indy and Marion's son Mutt. Fans might get a chance to see Crystal Skull alumnus, Jim Broadbent, as in 2017 he mentioned that he would be 'willing' to reprise his role of Charles Stanforth.

Not to miss, Star Wars actor Mark Hamill might be there in the fifth installment as a possible villain!

What Will Be The Storyline Of 'Indiana Jones 5'?

The fifth installment will definitely not have parallel universe-hopping aliens involved. The former movie, Crystal Skull's end is from where the fifth installment will take place that will feature an older Dr. Jones. Ford who also seemed excited to revisit his character later in life, "It's interesting to see it in a different light. It will be fun and a good thing to do." Looking at the fact that it's been 12 years since the last Indy movie came out, if the film follows Crystal Skull, which took place in 1957, it will take place during the 1960s. The year was a brilliant time and one of America's most turbulent time. 



 

If we dig deeper then we shall know that if the movie goes for 12 years, then it will come under the same year when man first stepped on the moon. Therefore, does that mean that the fifth edition of the movie may have something to deal with astronauts and rockets? Even though nothing as such is confirmed, director Steven Spielberg has assured that Indy won't die.

When Can We See The Trailer?



 

Not soon enough! With the release date being moved so many times, there is no way we can expect a trailer anytime soon. However, we might be able to see a teaser that will be screened at San Diego Comic-Con in 2020, with a proper trailer later in 2020 ahead of its 2021 release date.
