It’s been over 40 years since audiences were first introduced to the legendary adventurer and archaeologist Indiana Jones. The first film in the iconic franchise, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” was released in 1981 and has since generated four more films, inspired several video games, and garnered a fiercely loyal fan base.
The upcoming film, which is currently recognized as “Indiana Jones 5,” wrapped production in February and will feature a star-studded cast that, of course, includes Harrison Ford, but it may be his last (more on that later).
Although it’s unfathomable to imagine the franchise without Ford, rumors did circulate in 2019 that “Jurassic World” actor Chris Pratt would replace Ford in a reboot of the Indiana Jones film. In a July episode of the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, Pratt jokingly said he didn’t want to replace the veteran actor, and for an amusing reason. “All I know is I once saw a quote from Harrison Ford, and I don’t even know if it was really him but it was enough to scare me, that was like, ‘When I die, Indiana Jones dies.’ And I’m like, am I going to get haunted by the ghost of Harrison Ford one day when he dies if I play . . . ?” Pratt said.
Though details of the movie have been kept under wraps, here’s all we know about the upcoming “Indiana Jones 5,” from the cast members to a release date!
