After three marvelous and valiant international adventures – Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (and another one with a nuclear-proof refrigerator for some reason) – Disney announced early last year that there will be a fifth installment to the Indy franchise, set to be released in July 2019.
