Harrison Ford made a huge announcement on Tuesday when he revealed he will be returning to play Indiana Jones for a fifth time in Indiana Jones 5, which is tentatively set to premiere on July 19, 2019.
According to Daily Mail, Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films in the nearly $2 billion franchise, will also be returning for the new movie.
“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,” Disney chairman, Alan Horn, said in a statement. “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.”
The original Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark, was released in 1981. The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, came out in 2008. Fans have been hoping for another Indiana Jones film ever since, and now they’ve finally gotten their wish!
