Indiana Jones Title Announced

After speculation and spoof titles abound, the title for the fourth Indiana Jones has finally been revealed. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls is the official title of Harrison Ford’s return to the fedora and whip. The title was revealed by Shia leBeouf at the MTV Video Music Awards.

What do we make of it? It’s lengthy but fitting. Kingdom, Crystal and Skull are all totally suitable Indy words, but together, they make for one hell of an impressive title.

And what does it all mean? Well apparently there’s a modern legend claiming that there are 13 crystal skulls worldwide, of which five have actually been found, which have mystical powers and are of ancient origin. Sounds like the kind of thing Indiana Jones would have great interest in alright.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull stars Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Shia LeBeouf, Karen Allen, Ray Winstone and John Hurt.

It will be released in the U.S. and simultaneously in most territories worldwide on Thursday, May 22, 2008. Frank Marshall returns as producer, with Kathleen Kennedy joining George Lucas as executive producer.
