Indiana Jones is returning to theaters in a new movie, according to an announcement from The Walt Disney Company Tuesday.
Actor Harrison Ford will return as Indiana Jones and the director of the past four films, Steven Spielberg, will also return.
The studio will most likely use actor Harrison Ford's real age in the movie as they have before, meaning Indiana Jones would be 73 years old.
Twitter users pointed out that Indy would be much older than most movie adventurers.
Jokes aside, Spielberg has insisted that Ford could not be replaced, despite rumors that Ford's age has led to a search for a replacement.
The fifth movie in the Indiana Jones franchise will be in theaters July 19, 2019, six days after Ford turns 77.
