Harrison Ford is donning his brown leather hat and cracking the whip one more time, reprising his role as legendary hero archaeologist Indiana Jones in the long-awaited fifth film in the Indiana Jones series, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
Directed by James Mangold, The Dial of Destiny has been described as the final installment in the series. It’s the first entry not to be directed by Steven Spielberg, who serves as an executive producer alongside George Lucas. John Williams, who has scored each Indy movie since the original Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, will once again serve as composer.
So what is the new movie about? While details have been sparce, here’s what we know so far:
In 1969, American archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones lives against the backdrop of the space race. Jones has started to feel doubts when the U.S. Government recruited former World War II enemies in their desperation to beat the Soviet Union out in the competition to make it to space. His goddaughter, Helena, accompanies him on his journey. Meanwhile, Voller, a NASA member and ex-Nazi involved with the moon-landing program, wishes to make the world into a better place as he sees fit.
As you can see, the trailer is littered with classic Indy moments, some awesome stunts, Ford looking super young at times thanks to de-aging technology, and maybe even a Star Wars easter egg if you watch very closely. Along with that iconic theme song that gets your blood pumping!
It’s an action-packed trailer that is incredibly fun, and we can’t wait for Indiana Jones And The Dial of Destiny to hit theaters on June 30, 2023.
