Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, debuted the first teaser footage for the new, still-untitled film during the studio’s presentation at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday.
“I am very proud to say this is fantastic,” said Ford, and pointed to Walter-Bridge. “And this is one of the reasons.”
However the video displayed to the group has not been delivered to the general population, the recording showed Indiana Jones getting together with his close buddy Sallah and had numerous extraordinary activity successions, including one that had star Harrison ford riding a pony through New York City and onto the tram tracks.
There were also a few glimpses of what looked like a younger, de-aged Ford.
The film, which has Ford reprise the role of Dr. Jones more than 40 years after he first donned the hat in 1981’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” hits theaters June 30, 2023.
It also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen and is directed by James Mangold. John Williams, who composed the iconic “Raiders March,” is also returning to score the film.
“Indiana Jones movies are about mystery and adventure but they’re also about heart,” a visibly emotional Ford told the crowd.
There’s been a ton of information in regards to the following Indiana Jones films since it’s been being developed for a really long time, however Saturday was whenever fans first found out about what the following film could be about and what the bold prehistorian might be later.
“I had the time of my life making this movie…keeping up with this guy is exhausting,” Waller-Bridges told the crowd.
Those in participation at D23 went off the deep end for only goodies of information from the impending film. It appears to be legit why, taking into account that the Indiana Jones establishment is one of the most famous in film history.
The latest film will be the fifth for the series, and likely Ford’s last in the role.
After the audience reacted to the mention of this being his last film in the role, he joked, “This is it. I will not fall down for you again.”
Avoiding poison darts and outrunning rolling boulders is tough at 80 years old, after all.
And what would a Lucasfilm presentation be without some “Star Wars” news?
The presentation showed off the new Disney+ series “Andor” including a new gritty trailer that took fans into the world of the rebellion five years before “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
The series hits the streaming service on September 21.
