What is the correct order of Indiana Jones movies?
Interested in watching all movies in the order the story actually takes place? Here’s the order you should follow.
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
TV series: The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992 to 1996)

Indiana Jones 5 (2023)
Is Indiana Jones 5 the last movie?
Kathleen Kennedy, the producer of movies and President of Lucasfilm, revealed that they wouldn't make Indiana Jones films without Harrison Ford, it means Indiana Jones 5 will be the last film in the series.
The first movie will turn 42 years old and Harrison Ford will be 80 years old when Indiana Jones 5 is released next summer. Even if he can continue to play an action hero, there is a limit. Actually, even if all parties are willing to try Indiana Jones 6 immediately, given the long gap between the last two adventures, it is very unlikely that Ford will continue to play this role in his 80s. Drawing a clear line for the series of films and (hopefully) withdrawing in a high profile is a good way to end one of the best film series ever.
This series is a legacy of Hollywood, and it is also a rare series of action-adventure films.
