Harrison Ford gets younger in ‘Indiana Jones 5’.
The 80-year-old star will reprise his role as the main character one last time in the upcoming film, using visual effects to slow down aging as he did in the original trilogy.
This technique is only used in the opening scene of the film, which takes place in a castle in 1944 and pits a group of Indy and Nazis against each other.
Director James Mangold told Empire magazine, “Then we fall out and you find yourself in 1969.
“So that the audience does not experience the changes between the 40s and 60s as an intellectual vanity, but literally experiences the buccaneer spirit of the early days and then the beginning of the present.”
Kathleen Kennedy, who produces movies for Lucasfilm, wants technology to be less of a fan’s primary concern.
“We take you on an adventure. It’s what Indy is looking for. Immediately you feel, ‘I’m in an Indiana Jones movie.'”
Harrison confessed that it was “a little creepy” to see himself aging in the film, which is set to be released in June 2023.
The ‘Star Wars’ actor said, ‘This is the first time I’ve seen it so incredible… I don’t even want to know how it works. I’m glad I did.”
