During D23, an event organized by Disney, Harrison Ford was invited to go on stage to present the first images of Indiana Jones 5. He took the opportunity to make his official farewell to his favorite character.
Harrison Ford, 80, is still in great shape! The comedian took to the D23 stage this weekend to present the first images of Indiana Jones 5 to the public.
Accompanied by his partner in the film, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the interpreter of the famous adventurer set fire with a trailer that made spectators crazy with excitement!
Unfortunately, these images have not been released online at this time. According Firstyou can see Indy there “in a desert town (where he seems to remember his past) and New York (for a parade and a horse chase in the subway).”
We can also see Mads Mikkelsen in Nazi uniform, an action scene on a train and “a very funny sequence where Indy cracks his whip against a dozen armed men (a kind of mirror of the cult scene from the first film).”
These images also tell us a little more about the role of Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She will play Helena, the goddaughter of Indiana Jones. Moreover, we can see Harrison Ford digitally rejuvenated. All this bodes well for this 5th episode, which was directed by James Mangold.
Also present on stage at the Anaheim Convention Center, the filmmaker confirmed that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were involved in the creative process.
Harrison Ford also appeared very moved when talking about this emblematic character that he will have portrayed 5 times. “This new opus is going to be fantastic. We have a real human adventure to tell, and it’s a film that will kick your ass”he chanted.
He then confirmed that this film will mark his last appearance as Dr. Jones: “This is it!”did he declare. “Indiana Jones is mystery and adventure, but it’s also a lot of heart”he added, with tears in his eyes, before pausing to collect himself and not burst into tears.
After the presentation, Harrison Ford reunited with an old acquaintance backstage: Ke Huy Quan. The latter was his playing partner in Le Temple maudit, released in 1984. He played the facetious Half-Moon.
38 years later, the two artists have fallen into each other’s arms. A beautiful image that enchanted fans of the famous archaeologist. Some even claimed that Half-Moon would make a return in Indiana Jones 5, but that seems very unlikely to us.
The 5th episode of Indy will be released in theaters on June 28, 2023.
