Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny is confirmed to arrive on Disney+ in December as well as a feature-length documentary on Harrison Ford and Indiana Jones. 

The fifth (and presumably final) Indiana Jones film was a slight disappointment in terms of its box office gross. Despite a flashy premiere at Cannes Film Festival, Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny was met with lacklustre reviews and it grossed “only” $383 million. That’s still a lot of money and we’re sure Disney will recover, but measured against a budget of $300 million, it wasn’t what Disney had hoped for the closing chapter of such a big franchise. 

After premiering in cinemas in June, Indiana Jones And The Dial of Destiny will hit Disney+ in December. Curiously, American audiences will be able to watch Indy’s final globetrotting adventure from 5th December, while UK audiences will have to wait until the 15th to watch it. 

The film will also be accompanied by a brand new documentary, titled Timeless Heroes: Indiana Jones And Harrison Ford. Directed by Laurent Bouzereau, the documentary will feature new interviews with Harrison Ford reflecting back on his career. 

Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, James Mangold (listen to our podcast with Mangold here!), Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will also weigh in on Ford and Indy’s legacy. The first Indiana Jones film, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, premiered in 1981 and is the most beloved Indy adventure, but the character and franchise have left a huge mark on pop culture and film history. 

There’s a trailer for Timeless Heroes: Indiana Jones And Harrison Ford too, which you can check out below. 

The title of the documentary is an interesting one. Could it suggest that Disney is looking to make more of these, focusing on other timeless heroes? If so, who’s next? Disney has a huge roster of characters and actors at their disposal. The recent news of Marvel’s troubles might make one of their superheroes an ideal next subject.
