The next Indy film finally has a title and release date.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is coming to theaters on June 30th, 2023, according to the film’s first trailer released on Thursday. The movie will feature Harrison Ford returning for his fifth main film as the titular explorer, as well as Phoebe Waller-Bridge as his goddaughter. It’ll be scored by John Williams, which is pretty obvious from the trailer.
It also seems like we’ll get to see Jones rocking his iconic hat and whip, though the latter feels decidedly outclassed. In what feels like a throwback to one of the franchise’s best scenes, we see Indy face off against a room full of goons with his whip, only to discover that they’re all armed with guns.
The previous entry, 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was famously not beloved like the ’80s classics were, but the fifth movie has a new director in James Mangold, who helmed movies like Ford v Ferrari, Logan, and 3:10 to Yuma. Hopefully, he’ll be able to find the right mix of nostalgia and fresh ideas.
