Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy shared her thoughts on why Indiana Jones 5 could very well be the franchise’s last project after filming wraps up.
Actor Harrison Ford returns to lead the cast as the titular adventurer, alongside Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Thomas Kretschmann, Shonet Renée Wilson, Boyd Holbrook, Toby Jones, Olivier Richters and Antonio Banderas in unnamed roles. Plot details for the film have not been released at this time, although the film is expected to explore the history of an archaeologist during World War II.
Speaking to reporters from Vanity Fair about the ever-expanding universe of the Star Wars franchise, Kathleen Kennedy looked into the future of the Indiana Jones film series. Check out her words:
“There should be moments along the way when you study something in detail. It was definitely a learning moment. Some people have been telling us that, well, maybe Han Solo was supposed to be a TV show and not a feature. But even doing Solo as a TV show without Harrison Ford as Han Solo… that’s the same mindset. Perhaps I should have realized this much earlier. We would never have filmed our Indiana Jones without the help of Harrison Ford. Having just completed the fifth film, I can tell you for sure that there was not a day when I was not on the set.”
