Indiana Jones 5 release date – when is Harrison Ford’s new movie out?

Indiana Jones 5 release date: Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones

What is the Indiana Jones 5 release date? Harrison Ford is back for another adventure movie featuring the globe-trotting archaeologist. This time, he’s being directed by James Mangold, for another storied chapter for ol’ Indy.

The fifth Indiana Jones movie has been in development since way back in 2008. George Lucas had been working on a concept, with Steven Spielberg set to direct. However, it wasn’t until the mid-2010s that it was made official, and an Indiana Jones 5 release date was added to the calendar.

Unfortunately, there have been some delays since then, and some personnel changes. Spielberg chose to step down from helming the production, and this’ll be the first instalment with no input from Lucas. But Ford has remained, with Mangold now in the director’s chair. What dangers will Indy face in his new thriller movie? When will it be set? Are any familiar faces, past or present, due to appear? Make sure you’ve got your fedora handy, and it probably wouldn’t hurt to bring a pocket knife – time to dig in.

When is the Indiana Jones 5 release date?

The Indiana Jones 5 release date is set for June 30, 2023. This was after a string of delays, first due to Disney’s own crowded calendar, and then because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The current date was announced in November 2022, when the House of Mouse moved around its upcoming slate. Harrison Ford himself made an appearance at Star Wars Celebration in May 2022 to confirm that June 2023 is holding firm. He brought with him a first-look image at his new chapter as Indiana Jones.

It’s looking good that this release scheduled will hold. Rest assured we’ll keep you informed if it doesn’t.

This makes Indiana Jones himself 70 in the film. However, it’s been rumoured we might get some de-ageing of Harrison Ford for flashback scenes. Some Roman soldiers spotted on set in Rome have created the belief that this could be a time travel movie, as well. Watch this space!

Who is the Indiana Jones 5 cast?

First and foremost, Harrison Ford is back for Indiana Jones 5. The star has led every Indiana Jones movie to date, and this is no exception. He last appeared as the Nazi-punching hero in 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull – probably didn’t fancy that being the character’s legacy, to be honest.

A stellar cast surrounds him, Phoebe-Waller Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, and Antonio Banderas among the co-stars. Though so many great names are attached, we’re still none the wiser on any of their roles – stay tuned for more.
