Harrison Ford Reveals Why he Returned for Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones returns for one final adventure on the silver screen in 2023. Actor Harrison Ford says his motivation to return to the character was driven by a desire to see Indy at the end of the character’s life journey.

Even though “Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull” showed his character getting married, it wasn’t necessarily an ending. That’s one major reason why Harrison Ford felt like making a new film after reading the script for Indiana Jones 5.

“I just thought it would be nice to see one where Indiana Jones was at the end of his journey,” Harrison Ford explains. “If a script came along that I felt gave me a way to extend the character.”

Harrison Ford went on to explain that the film itself is filled with “real emotion” and commented on the tough but fun production of the film.

“It’s full of adventure, full of laughs, full of real emotion. And it’s complex, and it’s sneaky,” said Ford. “The shooting of it was tough and long and arduous, but I’m very happy with the film that we have.”

In the last few years, we’ve also seen Ford return to his iconic character roles in the “Star Wars” and “Blade Runner” franchises.

Little is known about the plot of the new movie, but the footage, which hasn’t been released online yet, shows Ford’s retired adventurer Jones lamenting about his return to staid academic life with Sallah (John Rhys-Davies) from the original “Raiders of the Last Ark.”

“Indiana Jones 5” is directed by James Mangold and is out June 30, 2023. The legendary composer John Williams returns to write the score.
