Harrison Ford returns as the legendary archaeologist in the highly anticipated “Indiana Jones 5” as the last hurrah for the 80-year-old icon. The film is directed by James Mangold (“Ford vs. Ferrari,” “Logan”) who co-wrote the script with Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serve as executive producers. John Williams, the 90-year old composer who has scored each Indy adventure in the franchise since the original "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in 1981, is once again composing the score in what is likely to be his last film.

Disney revealed the first trailer for “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” which is the official title for the fifth installment of Harrison Ford’s action/adventure franchise. The trailer also showcases a de-aged Harrison Ford as Indy back in his glory days of archaeology and adventures. The film is scheduled for release on June 30, 2023. The trailer opens up with some classic, typical death-defying Indy antics. There are shots of him jumping between speeding cars, running along a moving train and riding a motorcycle chasing a plane.

Co-starring alongside Ford is John Rhys-Davies, who is reprising the role of Sallah, the "best digger in Egypt," last seen in 1989’s “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” Some other new additions include Mads Mikkelsen, Antonio Banderas, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Toby Jones. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the Emmy-winning creator and star of Prime Video’s “Fleabag,” is also making a first appearance in the franchise as Indy’s goddaughter Helena, who composer Williams has described as “an adventuress, and also a femme fatale.”

Wish we got more Mikkelsen as Voller in the trailer. Apparently Mikkelsen’s villain will tie into the “mistakes of the past.” as Indiana Jones will take on fighting Nazis once again.”

The latest film is set in the 1960s during the Space Race between the U.S. and Soviet Russia. Unlike the previous films, George Lucas did not write the story for “Indiana Jones 5” and Steven Spielberg is not directing. Instead, both of those roles will be filled by James Mangold, who is known for his films like “Logan,” “Ford vs. Ferrari,” “3:10 to Yuma” and more. Spielberg is still attached as an executive producer, and Lucas, the original creator of the film franchise, is credited with some involvement in the writer’s room.

“It’s full of adventure, laughs, and real emotion,” says Harrison Ford. Take a first look at Indiana Jones 5, from Empire’s major world-exclusive new issue.
