Harrison Ford Revealed Why He Returned to Indiana Jones 5


Indiana Jones 5 is set to showcase a very distinct version of the famous character, according to a recent interview with both Harrison Ford and director James Mangold.

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Ford talked about the upcoming movie and said that his motivation for coming back to the franchise was more about seeing where a character like Indiana Jones would be at the “end of his journey.”

“I just thought it would be nice to see one where Indiana Jones was at the end of his journey,” Ford said. “If a script came along that I felt gave me a way to extend the character.”


Ford explained that the movie itself is loaded with “real emotion” and commented on the tough but fun production of the film.

“It’s full of adventure, full of laughs, full of real emotion. And it’s complex, and it’s sneaky,” said Ford. “The shooting of it was tough and long and arduous, but I’m very happy with the film that we have.”

Director James Mangold also shared his motivation for the film, saying that it became important to him to figure out how to make a movie “about a hero at sunset.”

“It became really important to me to figure out how to make this a movie about a hero at sunset,” Mangold said. “The issues I brought up about Indy’s age were not things I thought were being addressed in the material being developed at the time. There were ‘old’ jokes, but the material itself wasn’t about it. To me, whatever your greatest liability, you should fly straight toward that. If you try to pretend it’s not there, you end up getting slings and arrows the whole way.”

Indiana Jones 5 will once again be led by Harrison Ford as he reprises one of his most iconic roles as the titular explorer. Joining him as the female lead is Emmy and Golden Globe winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The final installment will also feature the introduction of other franchise newcomers, including Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, and Shaunette Renée Wilson. It is set to be released in theaters on June 30, 2023.
