In case you haven’t heard yet, Disney has announced a fifth Indiana Jones movie, and not everyone’s excited. On the other hand, some fans are chomping at the bit, thrilled to see Harrison Ford crack that whip again. He’s not exactly a spring chicken, but older people have done more involved roles before.
Without further ado, here are some of the biggest Twitter reactions to the movie announcement:
One user thinks that Harrison Ford deserves a big slap in the face for even considering the role.

Another user is either extremely skeptical or really excited about the next film. You can decide.

Some are still a little sore about the fourth film, which didn’t receive great reviews. But maybe the fifth Indiana Jones film will offer a redeeming shot to the franchise?
Honestly I'll happily watch a fifth Indiana Jones movie, and I'll hope it's better than the fourth one.

There have been quite a few feminist fans who think that Indiana Jones’ character should change altogether and come back as a female.

Unless the new Indiana Jones movie is about his sister Jessica I'm not interested.

And there are those, of course, who believe that Harrison Ford is far too old to play Indiana Jones anymore. As evidenced by his role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he’s obviously not on bed rest yet, but does he still have enough energy to be swiping his hats out from under a closing stone door.
Apparently in the new Indiana Jones movie he mainly just sits in an armchair, eats a nectarine and has a nap.

Steven Spielberg plans to be the director for the fifth Indiana Jones movie that will hit theaters in three years time. It’s been 35 years since the 1981 debut of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Ford will be 77 when the new film comes out. More details will come as the date gets closer of the exciting fifth Indiana Jones film.
