Release of 5th ‘Indiana Jones’ movie pushed to 2021

Disney Movie Release Dates Poppins Moves Up Jungle Cruise Delayed

Indiana Jones delayed to 2021 as Disney shakes up movie schedule

The delays reportedly came from key members of the production not being satisfied with the script from original screenwriter David Koepp (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull).

Fans can join Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt in the film adaptation of the beloved Disney Parks attraction on October 11, 2019.

The Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday announced that the planned fifth installment in the "Indiana Jones" franchise will be released on July 9, 2021 instead of July 2020. Jungle Cruise will now go head-to-head with MGM's animated Addams Family, Warner Bros.' Goldfinch, Columbia's The Crow Reborn, and Paramount's Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Spielberg also has a slate of other projects he is now working on, including a remake of musical "West Side Story" and religion drama "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara".

Disney has a lot of great movies coming out in the next few years, and seeing the release dates laid out like this has got us all the more excited about the films headed our way!

While Ford remains committed to star as the iconic archaeologist once again with Steven Spielberg returning to direct, one can't help but wonder if time on the project is starting to run out. Is a man approaching 80 really going to convincingly be able to go on a world-spanning, bare-knuckle-brawling adventure? Also, Jonathan Kasdan is in the middle of signing his contract to rewrite Indiana Jones 5. The biggest question mark at this point is Harrison Ford.
