Disney Pushes 'Indiana Jones 5' a Year to 2021, Dates 'Maleficent 2,' 'Jungle Cr

• by Pamela McClintock

The move was widely expected. The film was set to open July 10, 2020, but production has been delayed because of script issues. Steven Spielberg is set to direct the fifth outing in the classic adventure series.

Disney also made a slew of other changes to its calendar, including announcing that Dwayne Johnson starrer Jungle Cruise will bow Oct. 11, 2019, while Angelina Jolie's Maleficent 2 will hit theaters May 29, 2020.

More immediately, Disney Animation Studios is tweaking the title of its next film from Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 to Ralph Breaks the Internet. The animated film's release date of Nov. 21, 2018, remains the same.

And the 2018 Christmas event film Mary Poppins Returns is moving up a week, from Dec. 25 to Dec. 19 — which is going to pose even more competition for several movies opening on Dec. 21, including Bumblebee and Aquaman.

Indiana Jones 5, from Lucasfilm and Disney, will see the return of star Harrison Ford. The actor, now 75 years old, will be just days away from turning 79 when the pic hits theaters.
