The movie`s release date has been postponed several times. Disney currently plans for it to debut in July 2022. Production started earlier this month in London.

Ford first played the character, a fedora-wearing archaeologist and adventurer, in 1981 in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'. Three other movies followed in 1984, 1989 and 2008.

The new instalment co-stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen. In 2014, Ford broke his leg while filming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" when a hydraulic door on the Millennium Falcon spaceship fell on him.
