Harrison Ford Says ‘Indiana Jones 5’ is an Official Ending

“It’s full of adventure, full of laughs, full of real emotion. And it’s complex and it’s sneaky,” Harrison Ford tells Empire. Stepping back into the world of Indy was no mean feat. “The shooting of it was tough and long and arduous,” he says. “But I’m very happy with the film that we have.”

Ford also mentioned that this fifth movie would be the last time, and the main reason he decided to come back after the last movie, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) is because he wants to give Indy a proper ending.

“I just thought it would be nice to see one where Indiana Jones was at the end of his journey,” Ford explains. “If a script came along that I felt gave me a way to extend the character.”

Indiana Jones made his debut on the silver screen in 1980 in his Egyptian adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark. This was followed by a controversial adventure in India with Temple of Doom (1984) and a second bout with the Nazis with The Last Crusade (1989). Indy would not return to Theaters until 2008, when he faced the Soviets in South America in Crystal Skull.

The details of this fifth movie are still unclear. However, new pictures from Empire’s exclusive seem to show that one of the stops he will make is 1960s New York City.

Indiana Jones 5 is set to hit theaters in 2023.
