The fifth installment of the whip-cracking adventure franchise is named “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny”.
Indiana Jones 5 will release in 2023
With Indiana Jones 5, the 80-year-old Harrison Ford will bid adieu to this franchise.
Indiana Jones 5 is the first without Steven Spielberg directing or George Lucas writing.
Instead, the upcoming and long-awaited Harrison Ford-led action film is directed by Oscar nominee James Mangold who has helmed a script co-written with his “Ford v Ferrari” scribes Jez and John-Henry Butterworth. Despite Steven Spielberg having exited his directorial duties for the film, he will remain a part of the production as a producer.
The action-adventure film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel. The score of the film is given by none other than John Williams.
Spielberg is the executive producer, and Lucas, the original creator of the film franchise, is credited with some involvement in the writer’s room.
John Rhys-Davies is co-starring alongside Ford and is reprising the role of Sallah. Sallah was last seen in 1989’s “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. There are new additions like Mikkelsen, Banderas, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, and Toby Jones. The Emmy-winning creator and star of Prime Video’s “Fleabag”, Waller-Bridge is also making a first appearance in the franchise.
About the Trailer
Disney has released the first trailer for the film, which is due on 30 June 2023. The trailer features Harrison Ford, once again as Indiana Jones, the death-defying scientist. Jones hasn’t lost a step.
The trailer spans nearly two minutes and shows plenty of thrills and action.
Indiana’s latest outing is set in 1969 and is against the backdrop of the Space Race between the U.S. and Soviet Russia, and will see Indy taking on Nazis again.
Opening with some classic, death-defying Indy antics as he jumps between speeding tuk-tuk cars, the trailer even shows de-aged Harrison Ford the way he did in his glory days.
It begins with an unyoung Indiana Jones narrating how he misses his old days full of adventures. He is now a professor and believes that “those days have come and gone.”
But fate has a different design for the adventurous archeologist. The trailer features an older Indy who has been asked to return for one final adventure, to which he reluctantly agrees.
The first look of the villains can also be seen, as played by Mads Mikkelsen and Antonio Banderas, plus Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Helena is Indy’s goddaughter. The iconic “Indiana Jones” score crashes as the unyoung Indy picks up his fedora.
The trailer has rampant action scenes and the iconic Indiana Jones theme song.
With Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, 80-year-old Ford will bid adieu to this franchise. Not only Ford but also the 90-year-old composer Williams, has confirmed that Indiana Jones 5 film would likely be his last Hurrah as well.
