There's a New Indiana Jones Movie Coming, Whether We Want It or Not

Harrison Ford will be back, so at least we won't have to suffer through Chris Pratt playing Indy or something.

Walt Disney Pictures has officially set a date for another Indiana Jones movie, which means a fifth film in the series is on its way, regardless of how much we all collectively hated The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

In a press release Tuesday morning, Disney said that Harrison Ford will once again reprise his role as Indy, with Steven Spielberg directing. Does that beat the inevitable Chris Pratt–starring reboot? Disney thinks so.

"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 Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn in the release. "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."

The movie's slated for July 19, 2019, but as of now, the studio hasn't hinted at a title or potential plot.
