Since the release announcement from Indiana Jones 5, Disney distils information in dribs and drabs. We know, however, that this new part will be released in cinemas on June 28, 2023. For the occasion, Lucasfilm has worked hard and offers us a rejuvenated version of Indy which, it must be admitted, is extremely successful.
Madds Mikkelsen has also recently promised us a return to the sources of the saga, which is not to displease us: “We go back a lot to the spirit of the first two films, that of the original Indy, with something dense and epic. It feels like a Steven Spielberg movie, whereas James Mangold made it, following the same vision. »
While a first trailer was unveiled to the public yesterday, we decided to take stock of this film to allow you to see more clearly.
Indiana Jones 5 features an intriguing story
Indiana Jones 5’s pitch promises to be interesting to say the least. Here we are back in 1969, alongside the famous archaeologist. The plot takes place in the space race. As our hero begins to doubt his own government, his goddaughter Helena accompanies him on a new adventure. For his part, Voller, a member of NASA, ex-Nazi, intends to make the world a better place, using his own methods…
A mysterious first trailer for Indiana Jones 5
Visually successful this first trailer does not tell us more about the plot Indiana Jones 5. We learn all the same in passing the title of the film: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in French). Nevertheless, we can’t help but feel nostalgia for the old films when we find Sallah (played by John Rhys-Davies). In short, all those who doubted are probably a little more reassured today.
Harrison Ford did not want to re-enlist
It’s not the first time he’s changed his mind. Harrison Ford was opposed to the idea of a return of the famous archaeologist, but he finally reconsidered his position. The Hollywood star recently explained: “I thought it would be nice to see a movie in which Indiana Jones comes to the end of her journey. This scenario gave me the impression of being able to extend the character. » This question of the character’s age was at the heart of the concerns when writing the script, as director James Mangold recently claimed.
A five-star cast for Indiana Jones 5
The production clearly did not skimp on the means for this great return of Indy. Alongside Harrison Ford, we will notably find Mads Mikkelsen in the role of the bad Nazi of NASA. You should also know that this version is not totally delusional. We know that former Nazi scientists had been recruited to oversee the Apollo project, which sent the first men to the moon.
The rest of the cast is also impressive. We note the presence of big names such as Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Harrison Ford loved working with Phoebe Waller-Bridge
If you don’t know Phoebe Waller-Bridge yet, you’ll probably like her a lot in Indiana Jones 5. She plays Helena, the archaeologist’s goddaughter. During the last D23, Harrison Ford also explained that if the film was going to be fantastic, it was thanks in particular to the British actress. She replied in a joking tone: “Following this guy is exhausting. » Knowing the talent of these two, we can’t wait to see this duo on the big screen.
