Does Indiana Jones die in Dial of Destiny? Here’s everything we know about the ultimate fate of our favorite archaeologist as we get closer to the release of Indiana Jones 5. Minor spoilers ahead.

Speaking with THR back in 2016, Spielberg said, “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.” That seems like the right decision, and with the adventure movie releasing on June 28 audiences will get to see if Spielberg stuck to his word or not.

We’re hoping that Indy will finally get to retire and continue doing what he loves – hunting down treasured artefacts – without hassle. But only time will tell!
