We already know Harrison Ford will return as Indiana Jones next year. While there has been little detail about the film thus far, we now know at least one other cast member. Today Lucasfilm announced that Phoebe Waller-Bridge has joined the cast! And while John Williams may have scored his last Star Wars film, it seems he’s not quite finished with the Indy franchise just yet.

Here’s the official press release form the studio:

Today Lucasfilm announced that If adventure has a name…it must be Indiana Jones! Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Solo: A Star Wars Story) will star alongside Harrison Ford, who is returning to the role of the legendary hero archaeologist, for the fifth installment of the iconic franchise. 

In addition, the inimitable John Williams will return to score the film, continuing a musical journey which began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark. Williams’ unforgettable Indy soundtracks, packed with all the epic thrills, suspense, romance and excitement that fans have come to expect from an Indiana Jones movie, have become as beloved and familiar as the adventurer-hero’s signature hat and whip.

James Mangold, the film’s director, weighed in on the announcement:

“I’m thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers. Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank, and John are all artistic heroes of mine. When you add Phoebe, a dazzling actor, brilliant creative voice and the chemistry she will undoubtedly bring to our set, I can’t help but feel as lucky as Indiana Jones himself.”

One burning question remains, however. Continuing the franchise after the debacle that was Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? Well, that’s certain still a bit of a gamble. But… Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones is one of the most popular Hollywood characters in history. Plus, James Mangold is directing so… We have a good feeling.
