Few film franchises are as beloved as Indiana Jones. Despite now owning Disney Star Wars, Marvel, and all of 21st Century Fox, a Indiana Jones the franchise still feels somewhat different and special, perhaps due to the limited amount of content Disney has mined from George Lucas and Steven Spielberg’s B-movie inspired series. But that will all change soon.
Since 2008 Indiana Jones the franchise has consisted of four films, they are Raiders of the Lost Ark(1981), directed by Steven Spielberg Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008). But fans of the series have been eagerly awaiting the upcoming fifth and final chapter in the franchise, which is set to debut in 2023.
Of course, Harrison Ford reprises his iconic role as Henry Jones Jr Indiana Jones 5. It has been explicitly stated that this will be Ford’s last film with the franchise.
Not much is known about the plot, although a recent article shared quite a few details. However, one of the most interesting aspects of the new film is that Harrison Ford has reportedly aged for some scenes.

Recently, news broke that Disney was developing Indiana Jones series for its Disney+ streaming service, although Disney has not officially confirmed the project. Rumors have swirled about Indy’s fate in the upcoming film, and Ford even hinted at his time as the beloved character’s true end.
“I wanted a chance to dive into that old picture of George and Steven and give the audience an adrenaline rush,” director James Mangold said of the opening show. Age Indiana Jones the movie has a killer opening, and according to Mangold, it’s a different movie now. However, it uses some advanced computer technology.
The new film begins in 1944 in a castle teeming with Nazis. Thanks to aging technology, the film takes viewers back in time Raiders-era Indy. “And then we fall out and you find yourself in 1969,” Mangold explains. “So that the audience doesn’t experience the change between the ’40s and the ’60s as an intellectual conceit, but literally experiences the vibrant spirit of those early days… and then the beginning of now.”
Similar technology has been used in other Disney films, especially the movies Tron: Legacy (2010) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016).
Not much else is known about the film’s overall plot or subtitles (if it even has one). Regardless, we couldn’t be more excited to see Indy on the big screen for one last send-off. Indiana Jones 5 expected to be released on June 30, 2023.
