The first four films have been directed by Steven Spielberg and created by George Lucas. After over a decade, Indiana Jones 5 is in development. It was confirmed back in 2016 though.
So here’s everything we know so far about Indiana Jones 5, including its release date, cast, plot, and what was the previous part all about.

Indiana Jones 5: Cast
Without a doubt, Harrison Ford will be back one more time. He is the one who can only play the role of Indiana Jones.
Jon Rhys-Davies has expressed his desire to reprise the role of Sallah. Jim Broadbent, another Crystal Skull star has also said that he’d be willing to reprise his role of Charles Stanforth. Mario Ravenwood who is Indy’s love interest in Raiders and Crystal Skull will not be back.
Indiana Jones 5: Storyline
Jones 5 will take place after Crystal Skull and will feature an older Dr. Jones. The film will likely take place during the 1960s, one of America’s most turbulent decades. But we are sure that there won’t be any parallel universe or aliens involved. But it has been confirmed that by Kathleen Kennedy that it won’t be a reboot.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) explained:
The fourth film is set in 1957, which is nineteen years after The Last Crusade. Indiana is enjoying a quiet life teaching but is then thrust into a new adventure. He races against the agents of the Soviet Union which is led by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett), for a crystal skull.
This journey takes him across Nevada, Peru, Connecticut, and the Amazon rainforest in Brazil much before Indiana Jones 5. He faces betrayal by one of his best friends Mac (Ray Winstone). Indiana is introduced to a greaser named Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf), who turns out to be his son. He reunites with Marion Ravenwood and eventually gets married.
