It might take a while before fans play as the junior Dr. Henry, but the fifth movie in the franchise should debut soon. According to Disney’s plans, Indiana Jones 5 should hit the theaters on July 29, 2022. After a series of changes, including Steven Spielberg vacating the director’s chair at the beginning of 2020, the movie will see James Mangold at the helm and Dan Fogelman on the script.
