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. This won’t be a Steven Spielberg movie as the lauded director has chosen to step down from helming the production, and it will be the first Indiana Jones film 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 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 schedule will hold. Rest assured, we’ll keep you informed if it doesn’t.
What will happen in the Indiana Jones 5 plot?
The plot for Indiana Jones 5 is going to centre around the space race and the influence of ex-Nazis on the NASA space programme.
In the new adventure movie, Indy will be looking into the role of the ex-Nazis. Mads Mikkelsen will play Voller the film’s bad guy and we think he has the potential to go down as one of the best movie villains of all time

This makes Indiana Jones himself 70 in the film. However, the trailer suggests that 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!
Is there an Indiana Jones 5 trailer?
On December 1, 2022, the first Indiana Jones 5 trailer was finally released to the public. It was first shown at D23 2022, but up until now, it had been kept under wraps.
As well as confirming rumours that the film would involve flashback scenes with a de-aged Harrison Ford, we also got to see John Rhys-Davies reprise his role as Sallah.
We also get a glimpse of our villain played by Mads Mikkelsen as well as Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is playing Indy’s goddaughter Helena.
Most exciting of all, the trailer also unveiled the final title for the film: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
On Super Bowl Sunday, on February 12, 2023, we also got a Big Game Spot which offered a little bit more Phoebe Waller-Bridge:
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.
