Disney has announced that Indiana Jones will return to the Cannes Film Festival for the world premiere of Lucasfilm’s “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” starring Harrison Ford as the legendary hero archaeologist and directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”), on Thursday, May 18th 2023. The highly anticipated final instalment of the beloved franchise–a big, globe-trotting, rip-roaring cinematic adventure—will screen out of the competition.
Mangold said in a statement:
“In 1995, I was honored to come to Cannes with my first film as part of Director’s Fortnite. Twenty-eight years later, I am proud to return with a slightly larger spectacle. My legendary collaborators and I are very excited to share a brand new and final Indiana Jones adventure with you!”
Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), John Rhys-Davies (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Toby Jones (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Ethann Isidore (“Mortel”) and Mads Mikkelsen (“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”). Directed by James Mangold, the film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serving as executive producers. John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, has once again composed the score.
With the upcoming Lucasfilm Studio Showcase on Friday at the Star Wars Celebration event in London, it’s likely we will see a little more about the upcoming film. Back at the D23 Expo in September, Disney released the first teaser trailer for the film:
“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” will open in theatres on June 30th, and we should expect the film to arrive on Disney+ later this year.
