Everyone's favorite cloak and sword archaeologist returns to the big screen in the upcoming fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise, which began pre-production in December. The sequel unofficially known as Indiana Jones 5 will bring back Harrison Ford as Dr. Henry “Indiana Jones”, with franchise creator George Lucas on board as executive producer. Director Steven Spielberg won't be behind the camera, however, as he turns around Logan director James Mangold.
This film has taken years and years to make. The news was confirmed by Indiana Jones 5 director James Mangold and producer Frank Marshall, who shared images on social media to celebrate the moment. The latest entry in the Indiana Jones franchise, tentatively titled Indiana Jones 5, will continue the story of everyone's favorite adventurer. Despite the fact that several other actors played versions of Indiana Jones at various ages in the television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, it is clear that Ford brings a unique presence to his roles and makes it difficult for viewers to accept others in those roles.
However, they will have to be very careful with Indy; it would be wise for Disney and Lucasfilm to end the franchise with Indiana Jones 5 before finding a way to reintroduce it in a way that honors the character of Indiana Jones, Ford and the devoted audience.
