A new Indiana Jones film is on its way for release in 2019 an announcement from Disney confirms.
Naturally it will be directed by Steven Spielberg and star Harrison Ford, it would not be an Indy movie if not.
Other cast members have yet to be announced, Shia LaBeouf starred in the last film, Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as Indy's kid, but the actor has gone off the rails of late.
Karen Allen was also in the last movie which saw her character and Indy get married so there is room for her to appear as well.
The last film, despite being not that bad, was received with unfavourable reviews and split opinion between fans, but Disney reunited Star Wars fans with The Force Awakens so they could do the same here.
2019 is a ways away yet so expect more details to dribble out between now and closer to the time.

No surprises to see that the Batman film The Dark Knight is the top grossing film in 2008 taking a staggering $994,896,852, thats £689,395,105 at todays rate of exchange.
The hype surrounding the film was immense as we went into the year and with the sad and untimely death of one of it's stars, Heath Ledger, this gave the film and even greater must see edge, and the film didn't disappoint, Ledger especially.
With The Dark Knight the runaway success it was the second biggest film of the year across the globe was a return of an old friend in the shape of Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took an incredible $783,011,114 (£542,544,744), not bad for an old man who's not been seen since 1989.
Third most popular film of the year is also the biggest animated feature of the year and Pixar/Disney had nothing to do with it. Jack Black lends his voice to the Kung Fu Panda which took $633,395,021 (£438,636,528) this year worldwide.
Also making strong numbers throughout the world this year were UK favorites Mamma Mia! with $568,704,210 (£393,821,544) and Quantum of Solace with $540,902,659 (£374,504,077) although both films are still plying in UK cinemas.

Not sure if sleeper hits exist these days, but if they are then this sure as hell is one, Mamma Mia! is a film adaptation of a stage show and it has becomes the biggest film of the year in the UK.
With a gross of £69,130,014 it out grossed the number 2 film by nearly £20 million. Even more remarkable is that Mamma Mia! has now become the biggest film in the UK, topping Titanic's 10 year reign.
Sliding nicely into the runner up spot for the year is the Bond film Quantum of Solace with a UK gross of £50,405,045. Although a good gross the studio may see this as a little disappointing as the last Bond film, Casino Royale, tool £5 million more.
Third on the list is The Dark Knight with £48,685,166, many thought this might have come out on top, but clearly few realised the power of the chick flick during the year.
All three of the top films of the year are in fact still showing in cinemas across the country, despite 2 of them being available on DVD/Blu-ray already.
The rest of the top films of the year are filled by the like of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull at 4, Sex and the City: The Movie at 5, High School Musical 3 at 7 and Wall-E at 8.
