The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm have announced release dates for both Star Wars: Episode IX (to be released May 24th, 2019) and the as yet untitled Indiana Jones sequel (will bow July 10th, 2020). Both movies have long been awaited to be sure, though with varying degrees of enthusiasm.
Episode IX, at least, will be the last of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Directed by Colin Trevorrow (known for his work on Jurassic World), the movie will release in May, just like all of the films in the first two trilogies.
The film will certainly go out with a bang, as it will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams and will be based on the format of The Last Jedi. Director Trevorrow has stated to Entertainment Tonight that they want to channel the raw creativity and boldness so signature of George Lucas and not be afraid to do something crazy. Hopefully, that is exactly what this last film needs.
There is even less known about the Indiana Jones sequel, except for that will be the fifth film in the series. I do hope that it is the last one and they start on a different franchise. I hear Tomb Raider and Uncharted are quite similar, maybe they can start on those next. No need to adhere to the video games, it’s fine; there often isn’t much of a story there in the first place.
Nonetheless, we will be seeing Harrison Ford in this one again. Though he has made it clear that this one is going to do it right, we can only assume that he is referring to the less than exciting Crystal Skull. It will be directed by Steven Spielberg again and Ford has said to BBC that they are working on “a really good script” and he thinks they’ll both be very happy with it.
