So perhaps Disney hasn’t abandoned films all together: Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy said that the next Indiana Jones installment is on course to go into production this coming spring for a July 2022 release. As previously announced, James Mangold is directing. Comscore currently has it dated for July 29, 2022.
No mention of Chris Pratt, who was rumored to be attached; just Harrison Ford returning, per Kennedy (of course).
Lucasfilm is in pre-production on the next installment of Indiana Jones. At the helm is James @Mang0ld, director of Ford v Ferrari, and Indy himself, Harrison Ford, will be back to continue his iconic character’s journey. Adventure arrives July 2022.
