Walt Disney Pictures has announced Harrison Ford will return to the big screen as Indiana Jones for a fifth Indiana Jones adventure, set for a July 19, 2019 release. Along with Ford, Steven Spielberg will be directing the as-yet Untitled Indiana Jones film with franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall producing.

"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 Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios in a press release. "It's rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn't be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven."

The Indiana Jones franchise began in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark, which has brought in over $248 million since its June 1981 release, which includes several re-releases as well as an IMAX release in 2012 that brought in over $3 million.

Subsequent releases included 1984's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. All told the franchise has brought in nearly $1 billion domestically and nearly $2 billion worldwide, not adjusted for inflation.

The untitled feature is currently the only film set for July 19, 2019 and will come one week after Marvel's Inhumans.
