You know that moment when life has you so busy thinking about important things, that you realized you’ve forgotten about other equally important things? Well, one of those moments might be now.
If you’re like me, it involves hearing the news that Indiana Jones 5 is still a thing, and it just made your year. Harrison Ford, while at the premiere of The Secret Life of Pets 2, had a short chat with Variety and shared his thoughts on the Millennium Falcon ride at Disneyland’s newest attraction, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
More importantly though, to this article at least, he also discussed the latest installment in the Indiana Jones franchise, saying that it “should be starting to shoot sometime next week.” And according to Indy, things are looking up:
“I’m looking forward to it. Things are coming along well,” said Ford.
That really isn’t a whole lot to go on, but for those of us who’ve been fans of the movies since 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, it’s enough to get our whips tangled up.
Of course, the imminent start to filming of the fifth Indiana Jones is sure to once again poke the rumor bear. Despite starring in films like Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World and their sequels, Chris Pratt was once at the top of the list to replace Ford, but the iconic actor has since come out saying that he’ll be the only Indiana Jones the world will ever know. Unfortunately for Ford though, he won’t live forever and Lucasfilm, I mean Disney, will most likely want to continue making money off the franchise.
Still, no matter what the future holds, it’s been 11 years since Indiana Jones went extraterrestrial in The Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls and we’re more than ready for his next adventure.
