Indiana Jones 5 has been a little like the search for the holy grail, but now, finally, this latest installment in the franchise has actually happened. Harrison Ford cracks his whip once again and adventures are sure to follow. Here’s everything you need to know about Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny release date
The cinema release date for Indiana Jones was been confirmed by Lucasfilm as 30 June 2023. That means you can head out and watch the movie now.
The project has been on the cards a long time, however, with the original plan for this fifth outing to be released in 2019. A lot has happened since then, but at least we now have a date, and it’s right around the corner.
How to watch Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny
Currently, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is a cinematic release. As for the future streaming of the latest movie, there’s a placeholder in Disney+, so it looks as though it will be joining the other movies on Disney’s platform.
Paramount+ holds the rights to the distribution of the first four films, however, so it might be that Paramount+ gets in on that action too. Currently the date of the streaming release is unknown.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny plot: How does this fit in?
The film has a lengthy flashback sequence in which a younger Indiana Jones (using de-ageing CGI on Harrison Ford) chases down the titular Dial and vies for it with Mads Mikkelsen playing Dr Voller. Then, flashing forward into the middle of the 20th Century, Indiana will be pulled back into the same artifact’s orbit when his god-daughter gets him involved in a refreshed plot to use it. It’s clear that this will kick off a typically globe-trotting plot involving plenty of tombs, traps and glimpses of much-loved characters, as well as some new faces, with an older Indiana struggling to fit into a more modren world. But this is Indiana Jones, and it’s amazing what donning a fedora and cracking a whip can do. Dial of Destiny is designed to age the character along with the actor – so this is really about the longevity of Harrison Ford’s commitment to the character as much as anything else.
