Harrison Ford Returns in Indiana Jones 5: Harrison Ford, who plays Indiana Jones, explains the circumstances that led him to decide to take on the role of the film’s title character once more. While in an interview with Total Film, the actor explained that his desire to “see a completion of the character” heavily influenced his decision to return for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

 “I wanted to see [Indiana Jones] at a later stage of his life, when he’s beyond the youthful enthusiasm and capacity, and beset by age and [stifled by academia]. I wanted to see him engage on one more unexpected, unanticipated adventure.”

  –   Actor Harrison Ford.

Ford will portray Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones, Jr., the movie’s titular archaeologist and professor, for the fifth and last time in Dial of Destiny. In 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, the actor made his screen debut as the beloved character. He later returned to the role of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy mentioned they would never make Indiana Jones without Harrison Ford.

Will this be the Last Adventure for Indiana Jones?

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will take place 12 years after the franchise’s fourth film — Kingdom of the Crystal Skull — setting Indiana Jones’ last adventure during the 1969 Moon Landing. In the film, Indy comes out of retirement to join his goddaughter, Helena Shaw (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), on a race across the world in search of the dial of destiny. Along the way, the two will cross paths with Jürgen Voller (Mads Mikkelsen), an ex-Nazi working for NASA, who is after the dial for its dangerous power. The upcoming film will also feature the return of John Rhys-Davies as Indy’s old friend Sallah, who previously appeared in Raiders and The Last Crusade.

Indiana Jones Runs Too Many Hours Long.

Lucasfilm has confirmed that Dial of Destiny will have a runtime around the 140-minute mark, making Indiana Jones’ final adventure the longest installment in the franchise. In comparison, Indy’s first adventure — Raiders of the Lost Ark — clocked in at 115 minutes, while the subsequent three sequels all had runtimes hovering around the 2-hour mark. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom had a runtime of 118 minutes, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was 128 minutes long, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull lasted 122 minutes.
