After long years and a host of delays, the fifth (and almost certainly the last) Indiana Jones movie is almost here. Yesterday we saw proof that the movie is actually happening in the form of the first trailer. He revealed the title, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate, and reminded us all why we love iconic movies. Everyone’s talking about the trailer, but most of these people are talking about old Harrison Ford and how he looks, in a way, good.
Using CGI to make one actor look like another, or to make an actor look like a younger version of themselves, has been around for years, but something has always been missing. It often falls into the Odd Valley, as it’s usually pretty impressive for what it is, but usually isn’t perfect, and that missing piece spoils everything. But the fans on Twitter especially praise the young Indy that we see in dial of fate.

It was recently reported that de-aging technology would be used to make Harrison Ford look like the Indiana Jones we remember from the first three movies. While much of the new film’s plot remains a mystery, we know Indy will be dealing with the remnants of a Nazi menace, so we’ll see where the story really began decades earlier.
This made some fans nervous, as the whole process of aging tends to look bad, but with a likely combination of technological advancements and practice, it looks like aging is getting a whole lot better. These brief sequences of the dial of fate the trailer looks pretty good.

The fact that these shots are in the trailer means that Lucasfilm didn’t expect to receive a lot of backlash. They could have kept those snaps out of the trailer if they were worried they wouldn’t measure up. These days, due to the extremely long time it can take to create CGI effects, the shots we get in trailers can often be unfinished and therefore not look great. But it looks like everyone is impressed here. The mother of a fan was apparently quite taken with CGI Indy.
And overall it seems like everyone is happy with the way Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate search so far. Harrison Ford is 80, but you wouldn’t know it from watching the trailer. Everything still looks like an Indiana Jones movie and fans are excited to see what will happen in this new adventure.
It’s fine not to want more, but the “why are we forcing Harrison Ford to be Indiana Jones again” criticism isn’t going to fly. He’s the only character Harrison Ford likes, he’ll crash a plane in your house if you try to take it from himDecember 1, 2022
Harrison Ford reiterated that this will actually be his last tour as Indiana Jones. Considering how long it took to release the fourth and fifth films, that’s hardly a surprise. But knowing that this will be the end, the question of how it will end is a question that must be on the minds of many.
I hope Indy dies in Indiana Jones 5. I hope Harrison Ford spends the rest of his career revisiting all the characters he’s played and killing them just because that would be the most fun way to end such an epic career.December 1, 2022
We still have seven full months before Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate hits theaters. We know there will be at least one more trailer that will probably give us a little more insight into what the plot is really about and how characters like Indy’s goddaughter, played by Phoebe Waller Bridge, really become part of the story.
Harrison Ford said “no more Indiana movies” then Patrick Stewart did more Star Treks so Harrison was like “bitch I’m gonna do one more”December 2, 2022
For fans who have followed Indiana Jones from the start, this will be a bittersweet movie as we finally say goodbye to Indy, but if it’s a worthy adventure for the character, it’ll be worth it.
