Spielberg and Ford Reunite as Indiana Jones Returns to Theaters July 19, 2019 – The Walt Disney Company

This shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, given how Harrison Ford has always spoken glowingly of Indiana Jones, in stark contrast to his lasting disdain for Han Solo. Perhaps more to the point, the widely-panned Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls made huge amounts of money for Paramount, so Disney knows it doesn’t take much for this particular franchise to pay dividends. Disney’s stewardship of Star Wars has been exemplary, with new directors and actors bringing fresh impetus to a series that was close to being moribund. With Spielberg and Ford returning, there’s not much chance of Disney doing the same here. Indiana Jones is such an attractive character, though, and regardless of how bad Crystal Skulls was I think there’s still enough pull there for it to be another massive hit. I am certainly going to be buying a ticket, no questions asked.
