Indiana Jones, the world’s most famous archaeologist, is back on his next adventure.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy showed off the first trailer for the new, still untitled movie during a studio presentation at Disney’s D23 Show on Saturday.
Although the video has not been released to the public, the footage showed Indiana Jones meeting his old friend Salah and he had several great action scenes, including one star Harrison Ford riding a horse through New York City. Subway tracks.
There were also some glimpses of what looked like a younger Ford.
The film, in which Ford reprises the role of Dr. Jones in more than 40 years after he first donned the hat in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, arrives in theaters June 30, 2023.
It also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen, and is directed by James Mangold. John Williams, author of the iconic “Raiders March,” is also returning to score the movie.
“Indiana Jones films are about mystery and adventure but also about the heart,” Ford said visibly emotional to the audience.
There has been a lot of news regarding upcoming Indiana Jones films since they’ve been in development for years, but Saturday was the first time fans realized what the next movie could be and what a gritty archaeologist might be after.
Waller Bridges told the audience, “I’ve spent the time of my life making this movie…Keeping up with this guy is exhausting.”
D23’s attendees went crazy just for the tidbits of news from the upcoming movie. It makes sense to keep in mind that the Indiana Jones franchise is one of the most popular in film history.
The final film will be the fifth in the series, and will likely be Ford’s last in the role.
After the audience responded by stating that this was his last film in the role, he joked, “That’s it. I won’t fall for you again.”
Avoiding poison arrows and getting past rolling rocks is tough at an 80-year-old, after all.
And what would a Lucasfilm show be without some Star Wars news?
The presentation featured the new Disney+ series “Andor” including the new trailer that transported fans into the world of rebellion five years before “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
The series arrives on the streaming service on September 21.
