Disney Dates Star Wars IX and Indiana Jones

Disney have announced release dates for Star Wars: Episode IX and the fifth Indiana Jones movie.

With Episode 8 – or The Last Jedi, as we now know it – due to drop this coming December, Disney have decided to break from the Christmas Star Wars release tradition usually employed and instead have scheduled Episode IX for 24 May 2019 in the US. Presumably the UK will share the same date, though Disney have not yet confirmed that.

Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow will write and direct.

Elsewhere, Indy 5 is now going to be in cinemas one year later than originally scheduled, with an original 19 July 2019 date pushed back nearly a year to its new release date of 10 July 2020.

Harrison Ford returns in the titular role, with Steven Spielberg directing.
