Harrison Ford can't, and fortunately won't, be replaced as Indiana Jones

The only thing that Disney seems certain about regarding any future Indiana Jones films is they don't plan on subbing in another actor as Indy.

“There are a lot of rumours,” the franchise's producer Frank Marshall says. “We haven’t even sat down to talk about Indy yet… at some point we’ll sit down. But there’s a bunch of people who could probably take the baton. … We’re not doing the Bond thing where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones … we have to figure this out.”

Sorry, Chris Pratt. Mr. Ford, please put down the blaster and grab the bullwhip.
