Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate: Everything We Know About Harrison Ford’s Return to the Franchise
It’s hard to believe (and also pretty hard, if we’re being honest), that the fifth Indiana Jones movie, called The Dial of Destiny, is coming out pretty soon. As is often the case in Hollywood, there’s no point in letting sleeping dogs lie down with these big brands.
Indiana Jones has become one of our longest-running film franchises, with the first three spanning the 1980s (’81-89), followed by a fourth the following decade in 2008. But that film, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was not well received and is today considered a Star Wars prequel – not the most flattering comparison.
In Crystal Skull, the ostensibly Indy is passing the torch to the successor to Mutt, his secret son with Mario Ravenwood played by Shia LeBeouf. The torch delivery was said to never materialize after that film, with LeBeouf no longer an up-and-coming actor in the years since. It may seem like it’s simply that for the Indiana Jones franchise, but here we are, 14 years later, with a Destiny Dial and a new heir that looks set to wear a hat and wield a whip.
But we will do that later. There’s a lot to be said about this movie and Indy Jr is just one part of it. So let’s find out. Here’s everything we know so far about what’s about to happen to us with Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate.
