The fifth currently untitled Indiana Jones film, which is currently filming in Europe, has been postponed for a year. On Monday, Disney announced a series of movie release date updates, including Indiana Jones 5. The project directed by James Mangold was originally scheduled to debut on July 29, 2022, but will now be released on June 30, 2023.
Indiana Jones 5 has been shrouded in mystery as production continues. From a series of leaked images on set, we can infer that the film is set in the late 1960s in New York City, and the plot somehow involves the space race. More recently, some behind-the-scenes photos featuring an army of Roman soldiers tease possible time travel – or perhaps a flashback to the origin of a wanted artifact.
We also know that Phoebe Waller-Bridge will play a key role in the new film as Indy’s assistant, with Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Antonio Banderas, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renée Wilson in undisclosed roles. It will be the first Indiana Jones film to be directed by someone other than Steven Spielberg – he stepped down from his directorial role in 2020, choosing instead to serve as producer.
The one-year setback for the fifth Indiana Jones Part of the installment could be caused by Harrison Ford’s injury on set, forcing the team to film around the actor’s recovery. The film shot across London, Scotland and Italy, where film production has tentatively returned in accordance with Covid-19 security protocols.
Other Disney titles that have been delayed include Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March 2022 to May 2022), Thor: Love and Thunder (May 2022 to July 2022) and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (July 2022 to November 2022).
