Earlier this week you could have heard a pin drop during everyone’s initial reaction to news that Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford were returning for another Indiana Jones movie. At the time there was no word on who would be writing the script, but now we know it won’t be George Lucas.
When cameras start rolling for the fifth Indiana Jones installment, Harrison Ford will be 74 years old, but he won’t be the oldest Indiana Jones.
Disney announced today that Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg are returning for a fifth Indiana Jones movie, that is scheduled to arrive on July 19, 2019.

(Also, I only caught the thing on cable recently…) When I remember the events of the first three films, I recall Mola Ram and his magical potions, an immortal knight, endless vengeful spirits from within the Ark, and…
I’ve spoken at length about my love for all things Indiana Jones. Sitting in that movie theater back in 1981 is what triggered my desire to seek a film degree. Though I would love to see more adventures of my favorite archeologists with a whip, Harrison Ford is just aging way too fast for any more films to surface. Which is why I love what Patrick Schoenmaker is doing with his workup of the character in cartoon form.
