Harrison Ford's return to the Star Wars franchise in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, reprising his role as Han Solo, was a huge help with the film's bottom line. It also rendered him the highest grossing actor in U.S. box office history. Disney--owner of the Star Wars franchise, in addition to that of Indiana Jones--hopes Harrison Ford has the same affect on the 2019 film.
It's been 38 years since Harrison Ford starred in the first of the Indiana Jones films--Raiders of the Lost Ark. He will be 77 when the as yet untitled film hits theaters.
It's too soon to tell whether or not Shia LaBeouf will reprise his role as Indiana Jones's son. He debuted the role in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Shia LaBeouf has been rather busy of late, wearing paper bags on his head and riding up and down in a London elevator.
Are you an Indiana Jones fan? If so, you're likely thrilled to learn that a fifth film is in the works, and that it stars Harrison Ford.

Harrison Ford needs to stay as far away from airplanes as possible. He was seriously injured when a plane he was piloting crashed near L.A. in August of 2014. His World War II-era plane stopped working midair, causing him to do his best to bring it safely to the ground.
Fans surely don't want to see their favorite actor flying any antique plans as they await a 2019 movie release.
Maybe wife Calista Flockhart can keep Harrison Ford grounded for a while?
