Disney CEO Confirms Indiana Jones 5!


In some interesting news today Disney CEO Bob Iger has stated that Indiana Jones 5 is definitely happening. And despite a lot of internet rumors having the role of Indy recast with a younger actor, it looks like following the smash success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney is open to Harrison Ford Reprising the role of Indy. For the latest details on this check out the news below courtesy of screenrant! Join in the Conversation AFTER THE JUMP.

Adding his name to the above list of Indians Jones 5-backers is Disney CEO Bob Iger, who, while talking with Bloomberg, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to another Indy film. During the interview discussing Disney’s recent business and future plans, Iger noted: “Indiana Jones, by the way, which will be coming.” Making the question of Indiana Jones 5 less of an “if?” and more of a “when?”

For his part, the 73-year-old Ford shows no signs of stopping or shying away from reprising past roles. Currently, Ford is back as Han Solo in The Force Awakens and the years have done little to dampen the smuggler’s charm or swagger. He’s also set to return as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner 2 from Sicario director Denis Villeneuve, rounding out something of a trifecta for the actor when it comes to reprising his most famous 1980s roles.

Yet, while Ford’s return as Han Solo is celebrated, his return as Indiana Jones in Crystal Skull is not. But the only way to change that perception is by allowing Ford another crack at giving Indy as fine a return to form as The Force Awakens gave Solo. We can only hope an Indiana Jones 5 (whatever and whenever that will be) will do the character justice. And hopefully, lay the groundwork for how Indiana Jones can continue once Ford hangs up his hat for good.
