“I don’t even want to know how it works”: Indiana Jones 5 Star Harrison Ford is Spooked By His Younger Self Using De-Aging Technology

Indiana Jones 5 Star Harrison Ford is Spooked By His Younger Self Using De-Aging Technology

We have a fifth Indiana Jones movie currently underway in production on our hands, and it’s bound to be one hell of an action-packed adventure once more. However, the legendary Harrison Ford will once again, and for the fifth and final time, be reprising his role as Indy in the fifth movie, marking the end of a 40-year-old run in the franchise.

It’s quite a saddening piece of information for fans of the franchise, but it was only obvious that Ford had to stop somewhere down the line as age catches up to him and his career. But that won’t be a problem for the onscreen version of Ford as he is set to be the latest de-aged actor in a movie.

However, fans of the franchise won’t be seeing Steven Spielberg at the helm as director this time around, who instead opted to take the backseat as a producer for the movie. Replacing him will be Girl, Interrupted director James Mangold.

While Spielberg won’t be directing the fifth Indiana Jones movie, fans will still be able to see their favorite Harrison Ford as the leading star who is set to reprise the titular character once again, albeit for the last time. But he won’t look as old as he does in real life.

The movie stars of the 80s and 90s are nearing the end of their careers, but the roles they chose to take on during their prime still demand them to look the part, and age becomes a huge disadvantage for these actors wanting to continue their work with the character even after decades.

Such is the case of Harrison Ford and Indiana Jones, but the new de-aging technology that has been put to use nowadays has been lauded as a solution to this problem.

Director James Mangold revealed the information as he described that the actor will be de-aged for the opening scene of the fifth movie in which he fights off Nazis in a castle full of them.

Ford too is quite intrigued by this de-aging technology, however, he finds it spooky too. During an interview with Empire, the 80-year-old Hollywood legend gave his thoughts on the de-aged look of his character-

“This is the first time I’ve seen it where I believe it. It’s a little spooky. I don’t think I even want to know how it works, but it works. Doesn’t make me want to be young, though, I’m glad to have earned my age.”

Needless to say, he’ll be making sure he cherishes his last ever appearance as the character after a 4-decade-long run in the Indiana Jones franchise unless he changes his mind!
