“Indiana Jones 5” Delayed by A Year, New Release June 2023 When Harrison Ford Will Be Almost 81


Harrison Ford will be weeks away from turning 81 years old when “Indiana Jones 5” is finally released.

The fifth episode of the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” series won’t see audiences until June 30, 2023, a year after it was supposed to hit screens. The original release date was July 2022.

What’s taking so long? Probably Ford’s accident on set in June 2021. He injured his shoulder rather seriously and dropped out of the production for some time while the production shot around him. But how much can you do without Indiana Jones on set? Not that much. So we wait.

Thomas Kretschmann ,Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, and Mads Mikkelsen will co-star in the latest installment. James Mangold is directing.
