- John Williams was announced to return to compose the fifth film. He later announced that he intended to retire from film composition once the film is released.
- John Rhys-Davies had expressed interest in reprising his role as Sallah from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). It was revealed in 2022 that he would indeed appear in the film.
- Steven Spielberg has stated Indiana Jones won't be killed off.
- "There's another Indiana Jones looming, I'm happy to say. I enjoy working with Steven Spielberg and making that kind of movie...A movie that's more about movies than anything else. Indiana Jones are family kind of films, and one of the great opportunities of my life is that Indiana Jones, Star Wars, stuff like that gets passed down generationally. Having your father say 'C'mon, let's go see this,' or your mom say 'That's very special,' and happily new generations come along and it's re-introduced again, and I mean that's incredible." -Harrison Ford, 9/27/17.
- Harrison Ford would embark on 40 mile bike rides and daily walks to get in shape for his Indiana Jones role.
- Harrison Ford said on a popular UK chat show that he would reprise his role as Indiana Jones again in a "New York minute," though he said later that this film was unnecessary.
- "If Nazis are back, I'm back. But that's not necessarily the theme of the new Indiana Jones script. We're working on a script, and I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg again, and revisit that character in a different story, at a different age." -Harrison Ford, 9/22/17.
- Rumors of Chris Pratt and even Bradley Cooper possibly assuming the titular role of Indiana Jones were laid to rest as of October 27, 2015 with confirmation from the studios attached that Harrison Ford would be reprising the role of Indy. Ford subsequently stated in 2019 that he didn't want his character to be recast, saying "When I'm gone, he's gone. It's easy". He later confirmed in 2022 that the fifth film would be his last time playing the character.
- In early 2015, Martin Villeneuve penned an unsolicited script proposal for a fifth or even sixth installment of the Indiana Jones series based on an idea he had pitched to his older brother Denis Villeneuve who was then about to direct Blade Runner 2049 (2017) starring Harrison Ford. The Villeneuve brothers, both huge fans of Indiana Jones, tried to have Kathleen Kennedy read this screenplay, described by Denis as being "nearly perfect," for Steven Spielberg's consideration to direct.
- "Well, I'm not gonna share the story with you because that doesn't seem like a good idea, but we'll see new developments in his life, his relationship. We'll see part of his history resolved. It's a very good script. I'm looking forward to it." -Harrison Ford, 2/14/20.
- Screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan is the son of Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote the first movie Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). They also co-wrote the script for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018).
- In a Entertainment Weekly interview with screenwriter David Koepp, he confirmed that the character Henry 'Mutt' Walton Jones III, which was played by Shia LaBeouf and introduced in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) is not going to be involved in the film. While Koepp didn't mention why the character and LaBeouf wouldn't be involved it could be assumed part of the reason for this decision is because of the negative reception both the character of Mutt and Shia LaBeouf received from critics and audiences.
- "I'm very, very excited about it... I rewatched Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day, it is so well-done and so charming, and it's such great storytelling. So yes it's a great honor to be part of that series that I grew up with... I'm in a lucky position where they let me read the script before, and yes, it was everything I wished it to be, so that was just great." - Mads Mikkelsen, 05/05/2021 (interview for Adam Chitwood, Collider).
- Will be the first film in the series not to be distributed by Paramount Pictures as Disney had purchased Lucasfilm in 2012, which owns and produces the series. Disney subsequently purchased the distribution and marketing rights to the series from Paramount in 2013. Paramount however, still retains distribution rights to the first four films and will receive financial participation from any future installments.
- James Mangold confirmed on Twitter that Phoebe Waller Bridge will not replace Indiana Jones at the end of the movie. Quote: "No one will ever replace Indiana Jones. Not in any script. Not in any cut. Never discussed."
- "I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans." -Steven Spielberg, 6/15/16.
- John Williams' final music score.
- "I'm gonna start doing Indiana Jones in about two months." -Harrison Ford, 2/16/20.
- "I can deny that it's not happening. We hope to start soon, this summer. It's gonna be fun! I am excited, they're great fun to make." -Harrison Ford, 2/14/20.
- After the release of A Quiet Place (2018), writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods were approached by Lucasfilm to consider writing the fifth Indiana Jones film.
- Harrison Ford will be just two weeks shy of turning 81 when the film releases on June 30th, 2023. Had the film released on it's initial release date of July 19th, 2019 Ford would've been 77 years old. He was 78 when filming began on June 4th, 2021.
- "We're working away, getting the script where we want it to be and then we'll be ready to go. Harrison Ford will be involved. It's not a reboot, it's a continuation. Harrison can't wait." -Kathleen Kennedy, 2/2/20.
- "Should be starting to shoot sometime next year. I'm looking forward to it! Things are coming along well." -Harrison Ford, 6/2/19.
- According to Variety in 2014, in an article penned by Peter Caranicas, deputy editor at the Hollywood trade magazine, he recaps some of the projects Janusz Kaminski worked as a cinematographer on. Then he caps the paragraph with the following line, "His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie." Kaminski is a long time collaborator for Steven Spielberg as his cinematographer. If Kaminski is in fact already planning to serve as cinematographer on Indiana Jones 5, then work on the film must be further along than any of us realize. Indiana Jones 5 rumors have been swirling around for several years but this was the first mention about the project's future.
- First Indiana Jones movie to not be directed by Steven Spielberg.
- John Williams premiered "Helena's Theme", which had been recorded the previous week, at his September 3, 2022 Hollywood Bowl concert.
- "I do think I'm invited in to create a character, I think that everybody wants that. That's why they pick certain actors that they think can come up with certain things, and it will be a collaboration as it always is. Interesting enough, again a little like Riders of Justice, there is kind of a genre mix in Indiana Jones always. There is something that is a little larger-than-life, almost back to the 30s with a Peter Lorre kind of feel, and then you have Indiana Jones who kind of is a straight man. But he does produce a lot of funny and interesting things, but there are different character genres in some of those films." - Mads Mikkelsen, 05/05/2021 (interview for Adam Chitwood, Collider).
- Filming for one scene took place on a nondescript street in June 2021 in Clapton, East London.
- "I think that what Indy looks for and when he looks for it dictates what the movie's going to be, so the selection of the MacGuffin is everything. I think since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) was set in 1957, there was a conscious desire to say a lot of our influences are going to be science-fiction movies. You got that with the original script - Jeb Stuart took the first shot at it with Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men from Mars. That was a really conscious decision that dictated a lot about what the story would be and what the movie would be like, and I think that was followed through on really nicely. I thought Steven Spielberg did a really good job with that. I don't know that the idea was most suited to an Indiana Jones movie, but that was what we did. So we tried to be very careful with the selection of the MacGuffin and the era this time to give ourselves as much latitude to make the best kind of Indiana Jones movie that we most want to see. Learning how that's the importance of the choice of the MacGuffin is a big deal. And it's hard because you can learn not to do something again if it didn't work as well as you thought it would, but you wouldn't have done that again anyway because you already did it. For me the lesson of Crystal Skull was the MacGuffin dictates everything, and so we tried to make the best possible choice we could this time. Not that nobody tried to make the best choice that they could in the past, but we tried to give ourselves the one that gave us the Indiana Jones movie we most wanted to see. I'm deeply immersed as we speak. All I can say is that there's lots of aliens and Indy dies at the end. Lots of hiding in lead-lined refrigerators, aliens, and he dies. Should go over very well. No, it's going really well. I really like our idea. I think it's clean and simple and makes a lot of sense, and I feel like the writing is going really well. It feels like it has a lot of momentum behind it. We have 'top men' working on it as we speak." -David Koepp, 10/24/16.
- Jonathan Kasdan replaced David Koepp, so Koepp can complete You Should Have Left (2020).
- Harrison Ford will be 80 at the time of this film's release, making him the oldest person to play the lead in a Disney film. The previous record holder was Richard Farnsworth, who was 79 at the time of The Straight Story (1999)'s release.
- A 2022 article published in Vanity Fair titled "The Rebellion Will be Televised" revealed that James Mangold was originally scheduled to direct a stand alone movie about Boba Fett for Lucasfilm. When the third "Star Wars Story" motion picture was put on hold, Mangold moved on to Lucasfilm's other most famous property, Indiana Jones 5.
- It appears that this will be the first Indiana Jones movie to be shot digitally instead of on 35mm film.
- The film has had four release date changes. Disney announced on March 15th, 2016 that it would release on July 19th, 2019. However, on April 25th, 2017, Disney's The Lion King (2019) (2019) took it's original date and the film was delayed a year to July 20th, 2020. The second release change, was on July 10th, 2018 and the film was pushed back another year to July 9th, 2021 due to Steven Spielberg's work on West Side Story (2021) (2021). The fourth release date change was on April 3rd, 2020, just a few weeks short of when production was initially scheduled to begin, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the film was delayed to July 29th, 2022. On October 18th, 2021, four months into filming, Disney once more announced the film would be delayed 11 months, to June 30th, 2023.
- Indy is seen wearing a gold wedding band for the first time Indicating he is still married to Marion. Karen Allen is not listed as a cast member so this may be a subtle nod or she may be mentioned.
- John Rhys-Davies third time to play Sallah. The only other role he has played three times was Gimli in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. In that film, he worked with Cate Blanchett, who appeared in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. He also worked with Viggo Mortensen and Bernard Hill, whose roles were previously played by Indiana Jones cast members John Hurt and Philip Stone.

- Outside of the "Indiana Jones" films, Harrison Ford is famous for playing Han Solo in the "Star Wars" saga. In Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018), Phoebe Waller-Bridge plays Lando Calrissian's droid L3-37, who is eventually integrated into and becomes the "brain" of Han's starship, the Millennium Falcon.
- Harrison Ford and Antonio Banderas worked together in The Expendables III.
- James Mangold has stated on Twitter that the opening credits will be in the style of the Raiders of the Lost Ark opening credits.
- Even if it's mostly set in the sixties, some sources of information claim that there's going to be a flashback that lets Indiana Jones fight Nazis on a train. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was set in 1938, so the flashback could be set between 1939-1945.
