Disney and Lucasfilm have pushed back the release of Indiana Jones 5 from the previously reported July 2019 date to July 2020. Since the Mouse House acquired the studio, there has obviously been much attention placed on the Star Wars franchise, which continues to thrive with new installments in the Skywalker saga, as well as standalone spinoffs like Rogue One. But as many viewers know, Lucasfilm is also home to world-famous archeologist Indiana Jones, who has starred in four adventure films to date. There were always rumored about a fifth installment, and last year Disney confirmed one is indeed coming through the pipeline.

Steven Spielberg, who helmed all of the previous entries in the series, is set to return to the director's chair once more to guide Harrison Ford on his (probably) final journey as the iconic character. The legendary filmmaker is quite the busy man right now, calling the shots on historical drama The Post for this fallReady Player One for next spring, and The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara at some point. It seems Spielberg's plate is a little too full at the moment, so Disney is giving him extra time to work on Indiana Jones 5.

Borys Kit of THR broke the news on Twitter, revealing the new date of July 10, 2020:
