Disney’s D23 Expo is this weekend, showing new footage and releasing information about upcoming films and TV series. A trailer for Indiana Jones 5 was shown along with new footage during the film’s panel.
Harrison Ford appeared on stage to talk about the footage, along with director James Mangold and co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Ford was emotional when going speaking about the film. “Indiana Jones movies are about fantasy and mystery, but they’re also about heart. We have a really great story to tell as well as a movie that will kick your ass.” Ford seemingly confirmed that this will be his last time as Indiana Jones, saying, “This is it. I will not fall down for you again. But thank you so much.”
The sun glowing over a desert city, then cuts to a rickshaw chase through the street. Audiences see Indiana Jones walking across a bridge, then running across the top of a train at night, chasing a plane on a motorcycle, riding a horse, and more. It’s an action-packed first look full of chase sequences, but it also features some flashbacks of a younger Jones as well as at least one major character reprisal.

Finally, the footage sheds light on the relationship between Indy and Waller-Bridge’s Helena, revealing she is his goddaughter. Jones is then seen grabbing his hat as he leans into a motorcycle sidecar and cracking his whip at a room full of bad guys with guns. The footage ends with a voiceover, “I’ve come to believe it’s not so much what you believe, it’s how hard you believe.”Courtesy of Slash Film
