Disney wrote in a statement, “A new #IndianaJones adventure begins on July 29, 2022. Phoebe Waller-Bridge joins the cast alongside Harrison Ford in the fifth installment of the iconic franchise.

The tweet continued, “The inimitable John Williams will also return to mark the film. “

Director James Mangold will succeed Steven Spielberg – who has directed all four Indiana Jones films so far – however, Spielberg has made a commitment as a producer and will always be closely involved in production.

“I can deny that this is NOT happening,” he smirked, allowing several seconds to pass before the audience finally understood and burst into applause.

Indiana Jones won audiences over with 1981’s Raiders Of The Lost Ark – widely regarded as one of the best films in the action-adventure genre.

It was followed by the equally beloved prequel Indiana Jones And The Temple of Doom in 1984, and later the sequel Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade in 1989.

Indie received the reboot treatment again in 2008 with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was criticized by fans and critics alike.
