Disney finally made it official today that “Indiana Jones 5” is absolutely happening! Best of all, Harrison Ford is reprising his role as Indy and Steven Spielberg will be returning to the director’s chair for Indiana Jones. The film is slated for a release date of July 19th, 2019.
This is great news ’cause I’m a really big Indiana Jones fan. It’s good timing to start making Indy 5 now ’cause Harrison Ford is not get any younger. The man is 73 right now and I think he definitely has one more Indy film left in him. Star Wars Episode 7 “The Force Awakens” will probably be the final time that Harrison will play Han Solo. This will probably be the final time that Harrison will play Indy.
Will Indy 5 end up being an action movie? Probably. Harrison seems to do action movies quite well so why not?
Now that George Lucas is no longer involved, that means more creative freedom for Ford and Spielberg so it’ll be interesting to see what they’ll come up with now that George is no longer in charge of the creative writing process.
One thing for sure, though, I hope they don’t bring Shia Labeouf back ’cause I thought Indy and Marion having a kid together was a pretty dumb idea. They probably will end up bringing Shia back but hopefully just for a small role.
If they want fans to take the next movie seriously then I’d suggest make the next movie more like “Raiders”. Something similar, ya know? We don’t need another “Crystal Skull”. I do like “Crystal Skull” but I’ll have to agree that the film had some problems. Hope they don’t let us down next time.
