The first movie in the Indiana Jones series, Raiders of the Lost Ark, came out more than 40 years ago. Harrison Ford played a daring professor who goes in search of the Ark of the Covenant to keep it from falling into the hands of the Nazis, who thought it had a special power that could help them win the war and take over the world.
Indy won that battle and continued his adventure in The Temple of Doom. After getting away from a few bad guys, he went to a small town in India where he found that the children and a sacred stone had gone missing, and it seemed like a mysterious king was to blame.
Things got hard, but Doctor Jones used all his smarts and finally got back what he had stolen and beat a bloody cult. He then made a third movie in which he and his father went on one last crusade, which was not the end of their adventures.
In 2008, Harrison Ford went back as Indiana Jones to the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. There, he met up with old and new friends for an adventure that made him once again the enemy of a group of dangerous soldiers with very macabre plans. The movie didn’t do very well, but now the actor has a second chance to show that Indy is still good.
Indiana Jones 5 is already being made, and it looks like it will be one of the best action movies of 2023. This one could fix the problems with the last one. Do we need another movie about Indiana Jones? No, but let’s see what happens.
Lucasfilm says that Harrison Ford will be back as the famous archaeologist hero in the much-anticipated fifth movie in the “Indiana Jones” series. James Mangold will direct the movie (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”). Along with Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), John Rhys-Davies (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Shaunette Renee Wilson (“Black Panther”), Thomas Kretschmann (“Das Boot”), Toby Jones (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Oliver Richters (“Black Widow”), Ethann Isi (“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”). The movie is directed by James Mangold and produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are executive producers. John Williams, who has written the music for every Indiana Jones movie since “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, is back to score this one.
The first images were:
The first official photo has already been released, and it shows Harrison Ford in his classic look as an adventurous explorer. In the previous movies, he fought Nazis, a cult, and enemy looters to get back valuable artifacts.

The picture also shows Indy standing in an old, broken building, which confirms that we’ll see him again exploring secret places that time has forgotten.
Harrison Ford was cast early on and was already wearing the classic historian/adventurer look in early set photos. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrote Fleabag and No Time to Die, was cast as the female lead.
Also in the movie are Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, and Antonio Banderas, who we think may be the story’s villain or perhaps an old Indy ally who we do not know.
Steven Spielberg is involved, but the film will be directed by James Mangold, whose work on the Oscar-nominated movies “Logan” and “Ford v. Ferrari” has won him praise from critics.
What is the story of the movie?
Photos from the set show the streets of Glasgow decorated in the style of the late 1960s in the United States. There are banners celebrating the return of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin after their historic landing on the moon, as well as anti-Vietnam War propaganda. This makes us think that at least part of this movie will take place in the summer of 1969.

If that’s true, then Indiana Jones 5 takes place 12 years after the events of the 1957 movie Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The photos also give us our first look at Waller-character, Bridge’s who many people think is going to be a villain. It could be a spy from another country, but she could also be one of the women who always go on adventures with Indy.
When Indiana Jones 5 will be released?
The study showed that the fifth movie in the series will come out in theaters around the world in 2023, but it didn’t give a specific date.
