‘Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny’

The fifth Indiana Jones instalment heading to cinemas on June 30 2023 is called Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny, Disney/Lucasfilm announced on Thursday as they released a trailer and first-look pictures of a “de-aged” Harrison Ford.

Director James Mangold and the effects team have rejuvenated Ford as the intrepid explorer for the opening scene, which is understood to take place in 1944 less than a decade after events in franchise opener Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

The remainder of the film occurs in the late 1960s and Ford appears as himself. The 80-year-old actor – who was 39 when Raiders opened in 1981 – recently told fans at the D23 convention in September that the story will “kick your ass”. He has said this will be his last outing as Jones.

The cast includes Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, a returning John Rhys-Davis, Toby Jones, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, and Boyd Holbrook.

Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel serve as producers and Steven Spielberg directed the first four instalments and serves as an executive producer alongside George Lucas.

The most recent episode in the franchise was Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull in 2008. The four films have grossed more than $1.9bn worldwide, unadjusted for inflation. When adjusted for inflation the tally comes to more than $4.4bn.
