Is Indiana Jones 5 the last movie?
It's worth noting that Lucasfilm has not expressly said that the fifth Indiana jones movie is the last in the franchise, but everything that surrounds the movie has largely hinted at it being the final in the series. While introducing the trailer for hte movie at D23 earlier this year, Ford said "This is it, I'm not falling down for you again!" Furthermore, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said as much to Vanity Fair as well, telling them: "We would never make Indiana Jones without Harrison Ford. Having just finished the fifth movie, I can tell you, there wasn't a day I wasn't on set where I wasn't like, 'Yes – this is Indiana Jones.'"
Despite this, word has come that the Indiana Jones franchise may be expanding to television again in a big way. It was previously reported that a Disney+ TV series was in the works as a spinoff of the feature films, with later news revealing that it would follow Abner Ravenwood, Marion Ravenwood's father and Indiana Jones mentor. If the series sees the light of day it would mark the continuation of the series, just in a way that doesn't require Harrison Ford.
