The poser features Harrison Ford as Indy in the center, Mads Mikkelsen as former Nazi Jürgen Voller at the top, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Indy’s goddaughter Helena Shaw near the bottom, plus a plethora of other characters. Waller-Bridge, Mikkelsen, and director and co-writer James Mangold all appeared at Star Wars Celebration in London to present the new trailer during the Lucasfilm panel.
Also among the cast is John Rhys-Davies, returning as Indiana’s friend Sallah, last seen in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” New to the franchise are Antonio Banderas as Renaldo, Toby Jones as Basil, Boyd Holbrook as Klaber, and Ethann Isidore. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas executive producing. John Williams returned to compose the score, having scored every other “Indiana Jones” flick.

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18 before opening in theaters on June 30.
The MPAA rates the movie PG-13. 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. Indiana Jones will encounter his old enemy, the Nazis, again. Voller is a villain inspired by Wernher von Braun, a real Nazi who became a NASA engineer.
The teaser trailer and artwork for the film debuted in December. A second teaser for “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” premiered during Super Bowl LVII.
Harrison Ford, now 80 years old, stated this will be the last “Indiana Jones” movie.
Before the film’s full title was announced, Empire shared behind-the-scenes photos and interviews with the cast last November.
“It’s full of adventure, full of laughs, full of real emotion. And it’s complex and it’s sneaky,” Ford said at the time. “The shooting of it was tough and long and arduous. But I’m very happy with the film that we have.”
It’s rumored that an Indiana Jones TV series could be in development for Disney+. It remains unclear if the storyline of this series would be a prequel to the films, set somewhere inside the franchise narrative, or following a totally new character rather than Henry Jones Jr. If this series is developed, it would not be the first TV show about Indiana Jones. In 1992-1993, “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles” aired on ABC. Harrison Ford made a cameo appearance in one episode.
