Okay, so we’ve all been pretty excited about the new Indiana Jones movie. Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg, and Kathleen Kennedy – what more could you want?
Disney and LucasFilm initially released the statement for Indiana Jones last year, saying:
Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.
The first Indiana Jones movie graced us with its presence in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark and has since gone from strength to strength. In total, the franchise has earned nearly $2billion in box office revenue across the globe. So when we found out there was a new movie coming our way – and so soon – we were pretty ecstatic.
But in a new statement released by Disney, we’re going to have to wait a little longer to see what Indiana gets up to next. Yesterday, they announced that they have had to push back the release date from 2019 to July 10th, 2020. Now, another three years is a long time to wait for hardcore Indiana fans, so we’re expecting big things. It’s said that this delay is due to the earlier release of Disney’s Lion King remake. So I guess we can let them off, slightly…
