To all post-grads in their 20’s and full-blown real world adults 30 and above: are you ready to have your nostalgic worlds rocked?
According to a new post on the Walt Disney website, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have officially joined the (still untitled) Indiana Jones 5. The film has even received a brand spanking new release date: June 19th, 2019.
Here’s the official statement:
“Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.
“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”
As of now, there are no plot details, but it’s a safe bet that aliens will NOT be involved this time around. If the franchise’s timeline is still intact, this fifth installment should take place in the late 1960’s (roughly). Hopefully, Disney and Lucasfilm release some more concrete information in the near future.
We can all agree that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull was garbage, but doesn’t Indy deserve a shot at redemption? You’re damn right he does.
We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
