Viewers will have to call the movie Indiana Jones 5 for a while. The presentation of the first footage from the film with Harrison Ford was shown during the Disney D23 event, but the title card only indicated the working title “Indiana Jones”. Exactly what the brave explorer is looking for remains a mystery, reports Vanity Fair.
The film was announced in 2016 and was scheduled to be released in 2019. However, this did not happen, and the date was initially moved to 2021, and then they stopped talking about a possible release date altogether. Eventually, Steven Spielberg stepped down as director, and his place was taken by James Mangold, who had established himself well with the films Logan and Ford v. Ferrari.
Now the new Indiana Jones movie is almost ready and wide release should take place next summer on June 30. Mangold revealed at the D23 presentation that he is currently working with composer John Williams on the soundtrack for the film.
An emotional Harrison Ford, sometimes breathless, promised during the speech that this was his last time in the role of Indiana Jones. “I’m delighted to be here again and maybe for,” he began, prompting cries of “no!” from the crowd. “No, not maybe,” he emphasized. “This is it. I’m not falling down for you again.”
