Harrison Ford will return to the big screen in 2022 in Indiana Jones 5. The film will mark Ford’s final appearance as the titular hero, but he may also pass the torch to a new character to continue the archaeological journey. Mutt (played by Shia LaBeouf), Indy’s estranged son, was introduced in the fourth film, Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull, but he reportedly does not appear in the new film and therefore does not take over as the next hero of the film. series. That leaves the Jones family legacy to another of his children: his daughter.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Waller-Bridge would be joining Ford in the iconic Lucasfilm series.
Her role hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it would make sense if she took on the character of “Old Indy’s Daughter.”
Old Indy’s Daughter was introduced in the 1992 TV show The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.
During the TV show, an older version of Indy was shown in a collection of never-before-seen adventures under his belt.
One segment showed him talking to his daughter, an unnamed character played by Susan Bigelow.

Since it’s already been established that Indy has a daughter of her own, it would make sense for her to return in his final film.
Waller-Bridge is about the right age to play his long-lost daughter and could be the perfect person to take on the series once Ford leaves the franchise.
The 78-year-old has also told fans that Indiana Jones 5 will be his last appearance as a character, but Lucasfilm will likely continue to make movies about the hero.

Ford has also previously stated that he will be the only actor ever to play Indiana Jones.
Therefore, it seems likely that a protege will take over from the hero after Indiana Jones 5 comes to an end.
In addition, the original creator of the film series, Steven Spielberg, previously explained that he wanted to give a woman the hat and whip after Ford stepped down.
He said, “We should change the name from Jones to Joan. And there wouldn’t be anything wrong with that.”

Spielberg continued: “This will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie, I’m pretty sure of that. But after that it will definitely continue.”
About a female replacement, the director said: “My mother was strong. She had a voice, she had a very strong opinion.
“I’ve been very lucky to be influenced by women, some of whom I’ve just loved madly — my mom and my wife.”
Indiana Jone 5 will be the first film in the series without Spielberg.
Speaking about the cast of the film, the new director, James Mangold, said: “I am thrilled to embark on a new adventure, working with a dream team of great filmmakers of all time. Steven [Spielberg], Harrison [Ford], Kathy [Kennedy], Frank [Marshall], and John [Williams] are all artistic heroes of mine.
“When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will no doubt bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as happy as Indiana Jones herself.”
Indiana Jones 5 is set to hit theaters on July 28, 2022.
