After an endless amount of hemming and hawing, Indiana Jones 5 is officially confirmed by Disney.

Aside from pushing back Indiana Jones 5 to a date that could see its star, Harrison Ford, dead by then (he'll be 78), Disney also announced that Jungle Cruise will bring Dwayne Johnson back into theaters on October 11, 2019, while Angelina Jolie's Maleficent 2 will sequel into theaters on May 29, 2020.

Today, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we have a new release date - July 9th, 2021. The latest installment in the long-running franchise was previously set to arrive on July 10, 2020.

Photographers are reflected in the glasses of cast member Harrison Ford during a photocall for the film "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" by USA director Steven Spielberg at the 61st Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, May 18, 2008. Collider reports that Solo: A Star Wars Story writer Jonathan Kasdan will handle the script, replacing David Koepp.

Croatia's Sime Vrsaljko out of semi-final against England through injury
Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic said on Sunday that he respects England's team but his players are not afraid of anyone. A narrow 1-0 win for England , probably from another set-piece, puts Gareth Southgate's men in the final.


Spielberg also has a slate of other projects he is now working on, including a remake of musical "West Side Story" and religion drama "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara". "It's rare to have such a ideal combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn't be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven". Ford turns 79 years old in July 2021.

Before that, Mary Poppins Returns is shifting a week earlier in December this year, and the Wreck-It Ralph sequel is staying in place, but undergoing a minor name tweak to simply Ralph Breaks The Internet.

Finally, Disney shuffled around a number of untitled live-action projects, striking a November 2019 release and a February 2021 release from the schedule.
