Indiana Jones Continuing Without Harrison Ford Possible Suggests Lucasfilm Boss

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has expressed the possibility of the Indiana Jones franchise carrying on without its iconic lead star, Harrison Ford. While Ford is set to return for a fifth and final adventure in “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” where he will join forces with his goddaughter Helena Shaw, portrayed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Kennedy has indicated that the franchise may have a future beyond this film. Initially, Disney had stated that the fifth instalment would mark the end of the entire franchise.

However, following Disney CEO Bob Iger’s statement retracting the idea of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” as the franchise’s conclusive chapter, Kathleen Kennedy has echoed this sentiment. During her appearance on the “Dagobah Dispatch: An EW Star Wars Podcast,” Kennedy hinted at the possibility of the Indiana Jones franchise continuing without Harrison Ford after “Dial of Destiny.” She suggested that the franchise’s future may lie in the realm of series television. Importantly, Kennedy and her fellow producer Steven Spielberg agree that recasting the character of Indiana Jones would not be the preferred approach. For more detailed insights, you can read Kennedy’s complete comments or listen to the podcast itself.

It’s Harrison’s last entry. That’s how we look at the Indy franchise. I mean, truthfully, right now, if we were to do anything, it might be in series television down the road, but we’re not doing anything to replace Indiana Jones. This is it. There are five movies that Harrison Ford did. And Harrison is so specific and so unique to creating this role. We just, Steven [Spielberg] agrees, we just wouldn’t do that.
