'Indiana Jones 5' Release Date Pushed Back By Disney

'Indiana Jones 5' Release Date Pushed Back By Disney

Break out the map and the plane overlay, though perhaps it should be a TARDIS, as the new Indiana Jones movie is on the move to 2021.

Photographers are reflected in the glasses of cast member Harrison Ford during a photocall for the film "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" by USA director Steven Spielberg at the 61st Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, May 18, 2008. 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).

When Indiana Jones 5 was initially announced, Disney and Lucasfilm dated it for July 19, 2019.

Steven Spielberg is set to direct the latest "Indiana Jones" film, with Harrison Ford also reprising his role.

For the past three years, Disney has released a Star Wars movie around Christmas: The Force Awakens in 2016, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 2016, and The Last Jedi in 2017. That latter date of February 12, 2021, now belongs to an untitled Marvel movie, which was originally scheduled for July. That's because Spielberg is in pre-production on a reboot of West Side Story and even looking at directing The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara with Oscar victor Mark Rylance.

Finally, in really, truly, incredibly important news, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2 is now simply called Ralph Breaks the Internet.

The shakeup extends to a number of Disney films scheduled through 2021, including Mary Poppins Returns flying up to December 19 this year from December 25; Jungle Cruise sailing onto an October 11, 2019 release date; and Maleficent 2 being conjured into theaters on May 29, 2020.
