With “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” scheduled to be released on June 30 as the fifth and final Indiana Jones movie, the MPAA has weighed in on the film with an official PG-13 rating.
According to their classification, the rating is due to “sequences of violence and action, language and smoking.” While the rating itself doesn’t add much to what can be expected in the fifth and final film, it is an interesting reminder that the second film of the franchise, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”, was a main catalyst (alongside “Gremlins”) that led the MPAA to create the PG-13 classification in the first place.
“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” will take place in 1969, amidst the space race where he will encounter his old enemy, the Nazis, once again. Harrison Ford reprises his role as Indiana Jones. Mads Mikkelsen will play Voller, a villain inspired by Wernher von Braun, a real Nazi who became a NASA engineer. Phoebe Waller-Bridge will appear as Helena Shaw, Indy’s goddaughter. John Rhys-Davies will return as Sallah, Indy’s friend who was last seen in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.”
The official trailer and artwork for the film debuted in December. A second trailer for “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” premiered during Super Bowl LVII. Watch the second trailer below. Harrison Ford has stated this will be the last “Indiana Jones” movie.
