Please don’t let there be any fridges in this one

Disney has appeared to confirm the release date for Indiana Jones 5.

The studio – who has now also acquired 21st Century Fox – has released an updated release schedule going up to 2027. And it includes an Indiana Jones movie scheduled September 9th, 2021.

This release date had been mentioned before, but seeing on an updated release schedule at least implies it is still happening.

Harrison Ford will be 79 by the time the film comes out. If the time difference in movies remains the same as it has been in real life – like Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull did – Indy 5 would take place in 1970. That’s a long way from the 1930s Nazi-punching era of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Three more Star Wars movies are on their way, the schedule also confirms.

The news is interesting, as it had previously been announced that would be taking a break from Star Wars movies following Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.

That was largely thought to be the result of the lukewarm response to Solo: A Star Wars Story.

However, on Wednesday, Disney revealed an updated release schedule going up to 2027, and three new Star Wars movies are listed.

The three movies will drop on December 16th, 2022, December 20th, 2024, and December 18th, 2026.

They are all just listed as ‘Untitled Star Wars‘ and no other information is given.

Rian Johnson is reportedly working on a new trilogy of films, to be made when he finishes his next film Knives OutGame of Thrones creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are also supposedly working on a trilogy of their own. Both these series will focus on new characters, and not the main Skywalker storyline, when and if they happen.

Anthology films in the style of Rogue One and Solo focusing of Boba Fett and Obi Wan Kenobi have also been planned, but the status of those are in doubt following the muted reception to Solo.
