Release of 5th ‘Indiana Jones’ movie pushed to 2021

Disney announced a slew of new release dates including Indiana Jones 5 and an untitled Marvel film. The latest installment in the long-running franchise was previously set to arrive on July 10, 2020. Much more to come on this one, so just stay tuned.

Script issues are reportedly behind the delay. 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.

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 US director Steven Spielberg at the 61st Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, May 18, 2008. Last month, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" co-screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan was brought on to help write the film. The film was originally scheduled for release in the summer of 2019. Is a man approaching 80 really going to convincingly be able to go on a world-spanning, bare-knuckle-brawling adventure?

While the delayed release of Indiana Jones has been widely reported, it is a bit of a surprise that Mary Poppins Returns is being moved up. Your mileage may vary, but we've yet to be convinced. At one point, rumors even suggested that Chris Pratt was set to step into Indy's fedora, but thankfully that isn't happening, and Harrison Ford will return. "Throw me the idol - I'll throw out my hip", right? The 2015 film went on to take more than $2 billion at the global box office and become the third biggest release of all time.
