The Walt Disney Company have been looking at their batch of upcoming movie releases and have announced that the planned fifth film in the Indiana Jones franchise will now not be released until 2021. Harrison Ford is very much still to reprise his role as the title character in the Steven Spielberg-directed movie, but it will miss out on its initial debut, which was set for the summer of 2020.
We’re guessing that production will likely kick off in 2020 as the script continues to be tinkered with.
Elsewhere, Disney has moved its upcoming Mary Poppins Returns up a week in the U.S. and Canada. The Emily Blunt movie will now bow on December 19th, a full week before its previous Christmas Day release date. Jungle Cruise, the film based on the popular theme park ride, which will star Dwayne Johnson, has been pushed back a week to October 11th, 2019. It is currently shooting Stateside.
The sequel to Maleficent also has a street date. The film, which will once again see Angelina Jolie reprise her role as the title character, will arrive in cinemas on May 29th, 2020.
The company also has a new Marvel film set for February 12th, 2021 and a new live-action film set for July 30th, 2021.
