The much-awaited Indiana Jones 5 is officially happening and is coming to theatres in 2021.
Indiana Jones, which is an American franchise based on the adventures of a fictional character, professor of archaeology, Dr Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, was first begun in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark. Owned by Lucasfilm (The Walt Disney Company) and distributed by Paramount Pictures, the movie will begin filming its 5th instalment in two months.
The film was previously announced in 2016 with speculation of the release date to be 19th July 2019, but since has been pushed back twice due to delays surrounding the script and story.
Introduced in the 1980s, the film series of Indiana Jones has thrilled the audience 4 times already bringing nearly $2 Billion at the global box office with its prior instalments of the very same series: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981); Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984); Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989); Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) and is all set to bring home more with its approaching action, adventure, fantasy Indiana Jones 5.
For now, Harrison Ford is the only confirmed cast for the imminent supernova, while the various cast members from the previous four films have also expressed their attentiveness for the 5th instalments of the franchise, but no such confirmations have been made by the production house yet.
Produced by Frank Marshall, Kathleen Kennedy, George Lucas & Robert Allen Iger and directed by the Oscar-winning movie-maker Steven Spielberg, the movie is set to release on July 9, 2021. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Steven promised the fans and said, “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end of it.” Disney earlier in 2016 confirmed that while Indiana Jones 5 is not calculated as the final big-screen and so will be followed by “a reboot of some sort.”
