Harrison has led the way in four Indy films, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, Last Crusade and, most recently, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Before the announcement, there was intense speculation that the Hollywood legend was being replaced by Chris Pratt in the franchise.
The Expendables star quickly poured ice cold water over that, stating that there was no way anyone else would ever get the role.
Speaking in 2015, he insisted: ‘Nobody else is gonna be Indiana Jones! Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones.
‘When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy … This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this.’
We’re sure Chris Pratt, who was his actual rumoured replacement, was also listening in…
