Rumors Suggest Chris Pratt to Replace Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones

Lucasfilm confirmed plans to bring back Harrison Ford for Indiana Jones 5 with a new director taking over for Steven Spielberg, but now it sounds like it could be setting up Chris Pratt to take over the hat and whip. Rumors indicated that Pratt would be taking over for Ford so the franchise could continue, but Ford himself has denounced those claims. Producer Frank Marshall even told Den of Geek last month, “There will only be one Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford.” But that might just be a smokescreen for Pratt’s takeover.


According to Daniel Richtman, Lucasfilm is looking at Pratt to play a younger version of the character. He also claims that Indiana Jones 5 is planning to set up multiple spin-off films as well as a Disney+ series and animated show. While Richtman has given good information in the past, we are certainly surprised to see these Pratt rumors resurface after they were previously debunked.

For now, the only known fact about Indiana Jones 5 is that Steven Spielberg will no longer be directing and that James Mangold is set to take over the position. Mangold most recently helmed Ford V Ferrari, which was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. The director has also tackled Logan, 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, and more.

Indiana Jones 5 is currently slated to be in theaters July 29, 2022. What do you think about Chris Pratt joining the cast?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
