Indiana Jones 5 Release Date Moved to 2021

Aside from pushing back Indiana Jones 5 to a date that could see its star, Harrison Ford, dead by then (he'll be 78), Disney also announced that Jungle Cruise will bring Dwayne Johnson back into theaters on October 11, 2019, while Angelina Jolie's Maleficent 2 will sequel into theaters on May 29, 2020. Now, Disney has made it official, giving the film a new date of July 9, 2021. Not a lot of time in the grand scheme of things. The new delay follows reports last week in Hollywood industry publications that the script had not been finished and that a new writer was being brought in to polish it. Disney did not immediately return a request for comment on Tuesday on the delay. Much more to come on this one, so just stay tuned.

Indiana Jones will be swinging back into theaters a little later than expected.

Both Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg are on board for Indiana Jones 5, although Spielberg now has his hands full with a number of other projects, including his West Side Story remake and the religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara.

I am leaving but I will always feel that this jersey, this badge and the Santiago Bernabéu are mine, no matter where I am. Ronaldo led Portugal to its first major title at the European Championship two years ago in France.

The saga of Indiana Jones 5 has been a long one. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a disappointment for many, though, Ford did turn in a believable performance, despite the fact that he was well into his 60s during filming. With Disney's recent success with the Star Wars franchise (and it's expansion into standalone films), the continuation of the Indy franchise seemed inevitable. The biggest question mark at this point is Harrison Ford.

With any luck, Indiana Jones 5 will be a return to form for the franchise, and a fitting sendoff for the character.
