Indiana Jones will return to the big screenÂ 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.
â€œIndiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we canâ€™t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,â€ said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. â€œItâ€™s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldnâ€™t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.â€
Famed archaeologist and explorer Indiana Jones was introduced in 1981â€™sÂ Raiders of the Lost ArkÂ â€“ one of AFIâ€™s 100 Greatest American Films of All Time â€“ and later thrilled audiences in 1984â€™sÂ Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989â€™sÂ Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and 2008â€™sÂ Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The four films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office.
