The producer of the Indy franchise Frank Marshall confirms that Harrison Ford is never getting replaced in future Indy films by Disney. Frank says they aren’t doing the James Bond thing where they replace Bond for every 3 or 4 films or so. They’re keeping Harrison as Indiana Jones. He is irreplaceable for sure.
Indy will probably be a continuing franchise but if Harrison one day passes away (not saying it’ll happen but we’re all gonna go at some point, right?) or no longer wants to do it, they’ll figure out a way to have a leading star and not name this character Indiana Jones. Like Harrison as Indy can pass the whip and the hat to someone else which is what Indy 5 is probably gonna be about.
This is a smart move ’cause Harrison is Indy and no one else.
When they make the next Indy film, I just hope they don’t make it a CGI fest and popcorn film like “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. They should make the next Indy film kind of like “Raiders” ’cause “Raiders” was obviously the best Indy film, in my opinion. “Raiders” was a masterpiece and classic for sure. I am a huge Indiana Jones fan and I hope they make the next one really good ’cause I’ll admit that “Crystal Skull” was slightly disappointing. Lets hope they don’t bring the sci-fi back.
