After more than five months since it was initially teased, D23 Gold Members can finally get an exclusive collectible coaster celebrating “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in Disney Springs.
‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ D23 Collectible Coaster Finally Released
Disney initially said the collectible coaster was “coming soon” back in June to coincide with the release of the film in theaters… but then did not release the coaster until over five months later. Today, D23 shared a post on Instagram to reveal that the collectible coaster has arrived to celebrate that very same movie, which is now streaming on Disney+.
To get the limited-release collectible coaster, D23 Gold Members will need to show their D23 Gold Membership Card and purchase a beverage (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) from the “Signature Libations” menu at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in Disney Springs. The collectible coaster features a design inspired by the titular Dial of Destiny.
‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’
“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18. It opened 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 reveal much of 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” takes place in 1969, amidst the space race. Indiana Jones will encounter his old enemy, the Nazis, again. The antagonist, 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, has stated this will be his 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.
