‘Indiana Jones 5’: Harrison Ford shows new images at D23

The king of adventure is back.

indiana jones 5showed its first trailer on Saturday during the D23 Expo. Although it has not been published online, Harrison Ford appeared on stage to talk about the footage, joined by the director James Mangold and co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

“Thank you for making these movies such an amazing experience for all of us,” he said, looking quite moved. “I’m very proud to say that this one is fantastic. [Points at Waller-Bridge] And that’s one of the reasons. »

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

Ford also alluded to the fact that this was his last time in the role, saying, “This is it. I won’t fall for you anymore. But thank you very much.

Waller-Bridge also shared Ford’s enthusiasm, saying, “I had the time of my life making this movie. I feel incredibly lucky and followed this guy [points at Ford] is EXHAUSTING.

While the plot has been largely kept under wraps until now, the new trailer gives fans the first real look at Indy in action. The classic character was last seen on screen 14 years ago with “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Ford was 64 when “Crystal Skull” came out, and he’s now 80, so it seems no age barrier can stop the world’s greatest archaeologist.

Alongside Ford and Waller-Bridge are series newcomers Mads Mikkelsen, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Kretschmann and Antonio Banderas.

The film marks the first time that acclaimed director Steven Spielberg has not directed an episode of the series. While Spielberg stayed on as a hands-on producer, “Indiana Jones 5” is directed by Mangold (“Logan,” “Ford vs. Ferrari”). According to Holbrook, fans have no reason to worry about the director change.

“The guy just can’t make a bad movie”, Holbrook already said Variety. “He’s so precise in what he does.”

John Williams also returns to compose the music for the film. In early September, Williams gave Hollywood Bowl audiences a taste of the soundtrack, featuring a new theme titled “Helena’s Theme”. The track’s title refers to Waller-Bridge’s character in the film, whom he described as “an adventuress, and also a femme fatale…she’s many, many things…She has a kind of music lyrical, like an old movie star.”

“Indiana Jones 5” is currently slated for a June 30, 2023 release date.

“The Mandalorian” is preparing for a new adventure. Disney+ has released the first trailer for Season 3 of the popular “Star Wars” series and announced that the series will premiere in 2023.

At D23, actor Katee Sackhoff hinted that the upcoming season was “crazy” before Lucasfilm unveiled a trailer.

Season 3 follows the events of “The Book of Boba Fett,” the 2021 miniseries that starred series lead Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) — better known as The Mandalorian or “Mando” — in a guest appearance. The end of the miniseries saw Grogu, Mando’s young enforcer, choosing to return to him after previously leaving his camp to train with Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The two then left Tatooine, with Mando going on a quest to visit “the living waters” beneath the planet Mandore in order to regain his honor and become a Mandalorian again. The hero will face many obstacles in his quest, the main ones being other members of the common people, with the trailer teasing a battle between Djarin and other stoic armored warriors.

In addition to Pascal, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito and Katee Sackhoff have been confirmed to reprise their previous “Mandalorian” roles for Season 3. Weathers plays bounty hunter guild leader Greef Karga, while Esposito portrays the The series’ main villain, Moff Gideon, who attempts to capture Grogu from Mando. Katee Sackhoff returns from Season 2 as Bo-Katan Kryze, a Mandalorian seeking to retrieve Mando’s Darksaber.

Additionally, Christopher Lloyd is confirmed to appear this season. Notable former cast members of the series include Amy Sedaris, Omid Abtahi, Bill Burr, Timothy Olyphant, Titus Welliver, and “Book of Boba Fett” stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Season 2 of “The Mandalorian” also featured Rosario Dawson’s first appearance as fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano, who is getting her own self-titled spin-off series slated for release next year.

“The Mandalorian” was created by Favreau, who will write most of the season. He and Filoni are producing with Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson and Rick Famuyiwa, with Lucasfilm producing the series. Weathers is confirmed to direct a third season episode. Previous directors have included Bryce Dallas Howard, Deborah Chow, Taika Waititi, Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez. Filming for the season began in October last year and reportedly wrapped in March.
