The greatest movie announcement since “Star Wars Episode VII” was made March 15 by Disney to bring back the adventurous “Indiana Jones.”
The date set for the return is July 19, 2019, which is roughly three years from now. The dates are never permanent though as Disney has a history of pushing back movies such as “Star Wars Episode VIII” that was pushed back almost seven months.
The return will bring back Harrison Ford to play the role of Jones as well as Steven Spielberg, who directed all four movies. Shia Labeaouf has not been confirmed.
“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Chairman of Walt Disney Studios, Alan Horn, in a statement on The Walt Disney Co. website.
I am curious to see how they will approach the special effects in this movie because the previous installment,“Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” got a lot of criticism for its heavy use of CGI.
The last movie was also criticized for the final scene which included aliens. It was a little farfetched, and the aliens looked like the most cliche aliens that you could think of.
Hopefully the new movie is a chance for Spielberg to redeem himself from the average “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Now that the movies are Disney owned, maybe they have the potential to produce something magical.
