The plan had originally been to film Indiana Jones 5 in the United Kingdom starting in April 2019 for a July 10, 2020 release date, but because of the new script and other concerns, it's unlikely the movie will arrive on schedule.

Now there are no other films in Maleficent 2 and Indiana Jones 5's new release dates.

The long-awaited sequel for Angelina Jolie's live-action Maleficent movie has finally been given a release date by Walt Disney Studios.

The new delay follows reports last week in Hollywood industry publications that the script had not been finished and that a new writer was being brought in to polish it. Disney did not immediately return a request for comment on Tuesday on the delay.

According to Deadline, Disney this morning announced some release date changes for upcoming films.

Both Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg are on board for Indiana Jones 5, although Spielberg now has his hands full with a number of other projects, including his West Side Story remake and the religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara. The timing begs some questions, such as... well, hey, do we really still need to do this? Also, Jonathan Kasdan is in the middle of signing his contract to rewrite Indiana Jones 5.
