D23 details on Indiana Jones 5 as emotional Harrison Ford confirms it’s his last outing

September 10th, 2022 by Marc Comments

Well, if, like us, you were hoping there was footage at D23 from Indiana Jones 5, then I have good news for you, there was. We just aren’t allowed to see it.

What we do know from the reporting is that the footage had a major sequence set during a New York ticker tape parade, a horseback chase in a subway tunnel, a train sequence, scenes in the desert and flashbacks with a de-aged Harrison Ford that looked amazing. Oh, and Jones taking on a bunch of armed men… with the whip! Yes!

The footage got a major round of applause.

Director James Mangold said that both Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were involved in the movie which, if true, should be a major relief for fans who feared neither of them not being a part of the production.

The sad news, although not unexpected, is that Harrison Ford, now 78, confirms this is his final time with the hat and whip, telling the audience: “This is it, I’m not falling down for you again!”

“Thank you for making these films such an incredible experience for all of us,” Ford said, with reports being he tear up during his address.

“I’m very proud to say to say that this one is fantastic. and [Phoebe Waller-Bridge] is one of the reasons.”

Going on, he said: “Indiana Jones’ movies are about fantasy and mystery, but they’re also about heart. We have a really great story to tell, as well as a movie that will kick your ass.”

Coming on stage after the footage, Marvel boss Kevin Feige said he was ‘shocked’ at how good the footage was. Make of that what you will.

Indiana Jones 5  is currently set for a June 30th.
