Well, we still have to call it “Indiana Jones 5.” Today at the D23 Expo, Disney and Lucasfilm did not reveal the title of the upcoming film, but we did see a ton of amazing footage.

“This one is fantastic,” a very emotional Harrison Ford said on stage. “We have a very human story and a movie that will kick your ass.” He also said it would be his last time. “I will not fall down for you again,” he said.


What does that mean? Well, in an exclusive sizzle reel show only at the convention, we got a brief glimpse.

It was very fast paced, but among the images we saw carts racing in the street, divers going under the water, and a skeleton popping out. Indy is still teaching, and he walks around in a very busy closet. There are scenes of people fighting on top of a train and eventually we realize that his old friend Sallah is back, and he needs Indy to help him one last time.


“I miss the desert,” Sallah says over a bunch of the footage. “I miss the city. I miss waking up every morning wondering what wonderful adventure that day will bring to us.”

“Those days are come and gone,” says Indy. “Perhaps,” answers Sallah. “Perhaps not.”

There’s definitely a big set piece on horseback, in what appeared to be a flashback, because Indy looked a little de-aged. (Plus it seems to be taking place at the end of World War II.) Boyd Holbrook’s character fires a gun and a big celebration of people in New York City all duck. He and Indy ride horseback through the scene. We see Indy on a horse in the subway.

“I don’t believe in magic,” Indy says. “But a few times in my life I’ve seen things. Things I can’t explain. And I’ve come to believe it’s not so much what you believe, it’s how hard you believe it.”


Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s character was along for some of this. At some point, the two of them are in a bar and people ask how they’re related and Indy says, jokingly, he’s her godfather.

The footage - which also had some plane action scenes and tomb raiding - ended with Indy unleashing his whip in a bar. He just cracks it a bunch of times and tell everyone to back up. They then all take out guns and shoot at him as he jumps out the window.


Action packed, very beautifully shot, it looked excellent. I just wish we knew what it was called. Indy 5 is out June 30.

Update 9/10/2022, 7:15 p.m. ET: This post has been updated with some direct quotes from the footage.
