Harrison Ford cracks the whip in teaser trailer for Indiana Jonesand the Dial of Destiny'. It's such a well-known name that he even has his own theme song, and boy, does it have a catchy tune!
Harrison Ford reprises his role as the eponymous hero archaeologist in the newly released teaser trailer for "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny," this time appearing in the clip alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who starred in "Fleabag."
In the fifth installment, which was directed by James Mangold, Indiana Jones makes his triumphant return to the action, albeit seemingly reluctantly, in order to embark once more on a significant journey, despite the fact that he believes that his days of engaging in dangerous activities have "come and gone."
The new film features appearances from a number of well-known actors, including Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Shaunette Renee Wilson, and Mads Mikkelsen.
John Williams, who has scored every Indiana Jones adventure since the first "Raiders of the Lost Ark" movie was released in 1981, once again served as the film's composer. Executive producers Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were also involved in the production.
In September, Ford made an appearance at Disney's D23 convention and provided attendees with a preview of the upcoming action.

It is highly likely that this most recent movie will be Harrison Ford's last time playing the title role.
After seeing how the audience reacted when he mentioned that this would be his final film in the role, he joked:
This is it. I will not fall down for you again.- Harrison Ford
The fifth installment of the Indiana Jones film series, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, is an upcoming American action-adventure film starring Harrison Ford as archaeologist Indiana Jones.
James Mangold directed the film, which he co-wrote with Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth.
It is the first film in the series that was not directed by Steven Spielberg or written by George Lucas, with Spielberg and Lucas instead serving as executive producers.
It is also the first film in the series not produced by Paramount Pictures, as The Walt Disney Company purchased Lucasfilm in 2012. New cast members include Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Olivier Richters, Ethann Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen, who reprise their roles as Sallah.
Lucas began researching potential plot devices in 2008, but the project was put on hold for several years. When Kathleen Kennedy became president of Lucasfilm in 2012, he handed over the project to her.
While the company worked on the Star Wars sequel trilogy, work on a fifth film stalled. In 2016, David Koepp was hired to write the fifth film, with a release date of 2019 set, though this was delayed several times due to script rewrites.
In 2018, Jonathan Kasdan was hired to replace Koepp, and in 2019, Koepp was working on the script again before leaving the project. Spielberg was supposed to direct the film, but he stepped down in 2020, and Mangold took his place.
Filming started in June 2021 and ended in February 2022. Locations for filming include the United Kingdom's England and Scotland, Italy, and Morocco.
In reference to the lengthy production of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was released a month later, Harrison Ford stated in April 2008 that he would reprise his role as Indiana Jones for a fifth movie if it did not take another twenty years to develop.
Shia LaBeouf's portrayal of Mutt Williams's character was first seen in the movie. Williams could have been the main character in a fifth movie, as producer George Lucas had originally proposed, but he later changed his mind.
Ford's advanced age would not be a barrier to the production of another movie, according to Lucas he's not an old man, after all. He looks even better than he did 20 years ago and is incredibly agile.
In 2008, Lucas started looking into potential storylines for a new movie and said that Steven Spielberg was willing to helm it, as he had done with the others.
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will release the film theatrically in the United States on June 30, 2023.
