Disney Announces INDIANA JONES 5 For 2019, Ford And Spielberg To Reunite!

I never saw Indiana Jones And The Crystal Skull. I'm curious about it though and still hope to when I get around it, although criticism of the film from friends suggest I do the exact opposite as the earlier films were awesome all around.

From Raiders Of The Lost Ark to Temple Of Doom and The Last Crusade, the Lucasfilm property has been a staple of action adventure filmlore and study for the last thirty years with actor Harrison Ford front and center. The set pieces are epic, the scripts are some of the most wonderfully written and Ford lends pure gravitas to a role that has become iconic at its core, and so the development of a fifth has been long in waiting with a revolving door of actors making headlines and nothing really being set in stone.

That process is finally over. And with that reminder comes the news of a 2019 date now set for the fifth installment featuring Ford back in character - hat, whip, fear of snakes and all. Read onward from The Walt Disney Company's latest announcement!
SPIELBERG AND FORD REUNITE AS INDIANA JONES RETURNS TO THEATERS JULY 19, 2019 
Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce. 
“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.” 
Famed archaeologist and explorer Indiana Jones was introduced in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – one of AFI’s 100 Greatest American Films of All Time – and later thrilled audiences in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The four films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office.
