That bumps it nearly exactly a year from its previous July 10, 2020, release date. Not a lot of time in the grand scheme of things.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has locked in the new crusade to see release on July 9, 2021. Much more to come on this one, so just stay tuned.

While director Steven Spielberg remains on board, screenwriter David Koepp departed to direct his own project, so Jonathan Kasdan (son of legendary Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back scribe Lawrence Kasdan) has stepped in to work on a new draft of the screenplay.

Spielberg also has a slate of other projects he is now working on, including a remake of musical "West Side Story" and religion drama "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara". As with all release date stories, the announcements relate to U.S. dates; the Ralph follow-up for example, is out in the States on 21 November this year before heading here on the 30th of the month.

If Indiana Jones 5 were to make its 2021 release date, it would be arriving right before star Harrison Ford turns 79 years old, making him 20 years older than Sean Connery was when he played Henry Ford, Sr.in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

In other release date news, Disney has scheduled Jungle Cruise and Maleficent 2 to hit theaters in 2019 and 2020, respectively. Break out the map and the plane overlay, though perhaps it should be a TARDIS, as the new Indiana Jones movie is on the move to 2021. "Throw me the idol - I'll throw out my hip", right?
