Harrison Ford is set to return as Indiana Jones in the fifth and final part of the movie series. The movie is set to take place in 1969 with the return of his highly familiar enemies, the Nazis. The archeologist would be returning once again after over fourteen years, but by the looks of it, his appearance would not be the same as that of what Harrison Ford currently looks like.

The actor has been announced as Red Hulk and Thunderbolt Ross for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but not before putting on his fedora and mixing with the crowd right before Apollo 11 got launched into the moon, preparing a group of Nazis that Indy would have to fight soon.

Harrison Ford Would Be Just As He Was In 1981 Thanks To Technology

Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981, giving us a long line of amazing Indiana Jones movies where the character swung about collecting relics and solving mysteries while somehow saving the world in the process. His upcoming encounter with the Nazis, whom he supposedly cannot seem to stop going up against will see Harrison Ford just as the fans saw him in his first installment of the franchise.

The opening sequence of Indiana Jones 5 will see a younger version of the titular character who would just as quickly be thrust into the era of 1969. Using technology similar to that of what The Mandalorian used on Mark Hamill. Although not the entire movie would have a younger Indy running around, the fans will see Harrison Ford put on his fedora and whip out his adventuring skills after the events of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. James Mangold, director of the upcoming installment has an entire series of successful films to live up to and his decision to bring back the old Indiana Jones for a glimpse would bring back fans in a whiff.

The director states that the scene itself required a great amount of technology and editing. Mixing the ILM software with current footage as well as matching the ears of the two films was a necessary step to make the fifth movie just as grand as the rest of them.

“I hope that, although it will be talked about in terms of technology, you just watch it and go, ‘Oh my God, they just found footage. This was a thing they shot 40 years ago.”

Kathleen Kennedy too remarked about wanting to keep the movie memorable and iconic even after being released years after its predecessor.

Indiana Jones 5 will be available to watch in theatres in 2023.
