On Tuesday, Disney announced that the 72-year-old actor would be reprising his iconic role in the fifth 'Indiana Jones' movie - after 41 years since “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” - the first installment. In short, Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones.

Do you know that Disney+ is increasing its per month price from March 2021!

So, “Jock! Start the engine once again!”

Disney announced on Friday in a tweet that the movies would be directed by James Mangold under the production of LucasFilm. The film is expected to release in July 2022.

In an investor presentation, the entertainment giant also announced that the movie is already in its “pre-production” stage.

The news came with no surprise as people were already looking forward to a new Indiana Jones movies. While talking to Ellen DeGeneres during her show in February, Ford confirmed that new Indiana Jones movie production would start this year.

“It’s going to be fun. I’m excited,” the 72-year old expressed his delight on the show. “They’re great fun to make.”

The last time we went to theatres to see an Indiana Jones movie was in 2008 for “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which came almost two decades after the third installment “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” which was premiered in 1989.

The original movie, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” released in 1981, followed by a sequel “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” in 1984.

The legendary director Steven Spielberg was behind those movies…

In the years since the release of the first film, the franchise rose to popularity and considered to be the greatest movies of all time and one of the greatest action movies ever made! In addition to this, the movies had a significant influence over popular culture, as the films’ successes inspired a variety of filmmakers and continued to influence modern media.

The United States Library of Congress selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry in 1999, deeming it as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant stories.”

Harrison Ford has also been part of an array of beloved characters on the big screen such as Han Solo in “Star Wars.”

No matter how big or small the character is, he always invests equal effort for every other movie. While talking to a media organization, he said that he’s not an “overnight success,” as he struggled for 15 years before getting a major real and prominent success.

“Persistence is certainly something I think I can credit myself for having,” he said.

In one interview, Ford shared that he felt “obliged” to put equal efforts and passion as he had put it in the first role.

So, in honor of the return of classic Indiana Jones movie with his iconic cast, let’s reflect back to the five most memorable quotes from the Indiana Jones movies:

“Snakes. Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?”

Just like any great character has a certain fear, varying from Chiroptophobic Bruce Waye to Captain America’s disdain from being called “a laboratory experiment.”

Indiana Jones also has the greatest fear of snakes. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, he went into the massive underground tomb to resurrect the Ark of the Covenant and discovers that the floor is full of slithering, poisonous snakes. And that’s when he uttered this iconic dialogue, “Snakes. Why did it have to be a snake?”

“Don’t call me, Junior!”

It was a work of genius when Indiana Jones father in the Last Crusade was introduced to the fans! Sean Connery, the original James Bond, played the father of the protagonist who was considered to be an American James Bond… well, extra point to

Spielberg to played it smartly!

Connery and Ford’s incredible chemistry was such a delight to see that they genuinely seemed to be real father and son in the movie.

“A Boat?! We’re Not Sinking, and We’re Crashing!”

Willie Scott may be one of those annoying characters who scream when encountering danger and relies on men for the rescue. But she did give an iconic dialogue to remember!

Willie, Indy and Short stuck in a crashing plane with no pilot and parachutes. So Indy takes out a raft, and that’s when Willie says, “A boat?! We’re not sinking; we’re crashing!” Luckily, they survived the crash on the same boat!

“Jock! Start the Engine!”

Here come my favorite dialogue and a favorite Indiana Jones’ moment!

The opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark might be the best opening scene in the history of cinema! The scene opens with Indy going into an ancient temple located at the middle of the jungle to recover an antique relic. He safely dodges all the booby traps on the way, and grabs a relic before being chased by aggressive warriors of an indigenous tribe. That’s when she shouts to his pilot, “Jock! Start the engine!”

“You call this archaeology?”

Dr. Jones was an archaeologist by profession, but all we see him fighting off Nazis and being chased by the violent lads…

Indy and his father was stuck on a Nazi tank when they were wandering through the desert in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, that’s when Henry, Sr. ironically utters, “You call this archeology?”

Did nostalgia hit you after reading this? Sure, it did!

Here's the most anticipated movies and books of 2021!

Well, we have to wait till July 2022 to learn the inside story of ‘Indiana Jones' and to see adventurer Indiana Jones back in action… Meanwhile, here's your list of 80+ love, Disney and Christmas movies!
