‘Indiana Jones 5’ to Shoot Next Spring, Harrison Ford Will Be Back

After all, it seems like Harrison Ford will be playing his other most iconic role once again, Doctor Indiana Jones.


During Lucasfilm’s presentation at Disney’s Investor Day, president of the studio Kathleen Kennedy affirmed that they are looking at a spring 2021 start date for production on Indiana Jones 5. James Mangold is taking over from Steven Spielberg as the director of the project.


He most recently helmed the Oscar-winner Ford V Ferrari, and previously, the acclaimed comic-book movie Logan, which was also nominated for an Academy Award.


Despite Harrison Ford turning 79 next July, Kennedy confirmed he will indeed be playing Indiana Jones once again. I have to wonder how much that will affect the story and how much it will lack action sequences because of Ford’s age, but maybe they will factor all of this into the plot of the movie. I am very curious to see how they handle all of this.


Indiana Jones 5 will hit theaters on July 29, 2022 (hopefully).


Another interesting tidbit from the presentation was confirmation of a 2022 release date for the Willow series for Disney Plus, which will start production soon and have its pilot directed by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians). Warwick Davis is back in the title role, with original director Ron Howard serving as producer. Jon Kasdan (Solo: A Star Wars Story) is writing.
