With Indiana Jones 5 , Oscar-winning composer John Williams will bid farewell to the world of cinema.

It was he himself who confirmed it during a recent interview, adding however that he has no intention of saying goodbye to music, he simply finds himself in a moment of his life in which dedicating himself to the soundtrack of a film involves too long a commitment.

I am currently working on Indiana Jones 5 and I think Harrison Ford, who is much younger than me, has already said that it is his latest film. I figured if Harrison can do it, then I can too.

The fifth Indiana Jones

Harrison Ford will reprise the role of the mythical adventurer archaeologist. The cast of the film will also find Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen , Thomas Kretschmann , Boyd Holbrook , Toby Jones and Shaunette Renée Wilson . James Mangold has replaced Steven Spielberg as director, but the historic director of the saga remains as producer along with Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel . John Williams will return to music.

It’s been thirteen years now since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull , which we thought would be the last film in the saga. But evidently the lukewarm reception (despite the excellent success at the box office) left a bad taste in the mouth of Spielberg, Marshall and Lucasfilm. For this reason, for many years now there has been talk of a fifth film to really close the series with a bang. Harrison Ford has never hidden that he is impatient to return to wearing the hat for the last time. The film will hit theaters around the world in 2023.
