A rumor about Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt taking over the mantle of Indiana Jones from star Harrison Ford first popped up in 2015.

While fans are waiting for Disney and Lucasfilm to assemble all the moving pieces to get Indiana Jones 5 off the ground, Harrison Ford is heading off on another adventure in the Alaskan wilderness. Now, he’ll be joined by an actor who would actually make one hell of an Indiana Jones replacement.

This week heralds not only the 35th anniversary of the last original-trilogy film in the series, Return of the Jedi, but the return of Han Solo to the big screen in Solo: A Star Wars Story; each of these films, in their own way, proved that lightning could never strike twice.
