If you thought Indiana Jones married Marion Ravenwood and staying with their son Mutt was the end, think again. The team behind Indiana Jones 5 didn’t see it as a proper send off for the iconic movie star, and it became the focus of the new movie, from June 30, 2023.

Talk to Empire (who also debuted the new look from the film seen above, also as two new covers), Indy himself, Harrison Ford, said he wanted more closure for his signature character, which is part of why he came back. “I just thought it would be fun to see one where Indiana Jones was at the end of his journey,” Ford said. “When a script came along I felt it gave me a way to expand the character.”

Director James Mangold co-wrote the script in question (along with Jez and John-Henry Butterworth) and explained that the focus of the movie would be exactly that: bsaid Indy to the end. “It became very important to me to figure out how to make this a sunset hero movie,” Mangold said. “The issues I raised about Indy’s age were not things I thought were being addressed in the material that was being developed at the time. There were ‘old’ jokes, but the material itself was not about that. To me, whatever your biggest liability is, you should fly straight to it. If you try to pretend it’s not there, you end up with slings and arrows all the way.”

Of course, those quotes don’t explain anything about the story itself. What Indy goes to, if Marion or Mutt is still around, who exactly is Phoebe Waller-Bridge playing, all the good stuff. But to hear Ford tell it, that’s all going to work in the end. “It’s full of adventure, full of laughter, full of real emotion. And it’s complex and it’s sneaky,” Ford said Rich. “Shooting it was tough and long and arduous,” he says. “But I’m very happy with the film we have.”

We’ll probably learn more next week when Empire’s full issue is released. Indiana Jones 5 (which, yes, still goes by that title for now) will appear on June 30, 2023.
