Disney has announced that a new Indiana Jones movie will be hitting the screens in 2019 starring as usual, Harrison Ford and directed by Steven Spielberg.
Steven Spielberg will direct Harrison Ford in the untitled fifth installment in the action-adventure franchise, which will open July 19, 2019, Disney announced Tuesday.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the last film in the series, opened in 2008 and starred Ford alongside Shia LaBeouf.
Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilms, home of the series — and Frank Marshall, the producer of the movie have stated that while Harrison Ford is still Indiana Jones, the movie plot will expand to include younger actors.
This new announcement comes just after the success of the blockbuster revival Star Wars: The Force Awakens, while Marshall and Universal also enjoyed success with last year’s other franchise reboot Jurassic World.
