Phoebe Waller-Bridge is best known for her roles in Fleabag and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Disney also announced that John Williams, who has worked on every score in the Indiana Jones franchise, will also return as composer.
James Mangold will take over for Steven Spielberg to direct the film, however, Spielberg will still serve as a producer and is very much involved in the film. Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel will join Spielberg as producers.
This will be the first Indiana Jones movie created since Disney purchased Lucasfilm. The four previous Indiana Jones movies, Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (2008), were distributed by Paramount.
