The situation changed in 2012, when Disney acquired Lucasfilm and its properties. Indiana Jones was one such asset, and the House of Mouse didn’t exactly rush to get the franchise back in theaters. Years went by until 2015, when Disney announced plans for the fifth movie with a release date of July 19th, 2019. Steven Spielberg was set to direct, with George Lucas involved as an executive producer. But despite these exciting announcements, filming didn’t begin, and Indiana Jones 5 was pushed back to July 10th, 2020.
