Production for the fifth 'Indiana Jones' has been back and forth so often it seemed it would never materialise.

However an update from Kathleen Kennedy confirms 'Indiana Jones 5' will see the light of day.

Not only that but we now officially know the new film won't be a reboot. Rather it's a continuation of the story which began in 1981 with 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.

Since then there has been a prequel, which hit cinemas in 1984, and two sequels in 1989 and 2008.

Of course the beloved character has been played by Harrison Ford across all the movies so far.

Disney now owns the franchise, having acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. With Kathleen Kennedy as the company's president, we can definitely take her word for any development news.

The last we heard of the new 'Indiana Jones' movie was when Disney released a slew of release dates up to 2023. The sequel was in there with a pencilled-in date of 9 July 2021.

Harrison Ford will be back, we also knew from previously.

Now Kennedy has told BBC: "We’re working away, getting the script where we want it to be and then we’ll be ready to go.

"Harrison Ford will be involved… It’s not a reboot. It’s a continuation."

Kennedy added that Ford "can’t wait" to get started on the movie. Previously he told Jimmy Kimmel he likes the contract he's gotten out of it.
