The fifth and final film about the archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.


How transmits Deadline, at a press conference dedicated to the film, actor Harrison Ford, who played the main role throughout the franchise, spoke about his attitude towards the “digital rejuvenation” technology that was used in the tape.

The 80-year-old actor believes that in the fifth Indiana Jones film, the use of this technology benefited the final result.

“Technology has evolved to the point where even I found the footage very realistic, even though it was my own face,” says Ford. “It’s not some Photoshop magic, that’s how I looked 35 years ago because Lucasfilm has all the footage of the movies we’ve made together all these years.”

Ford noted that sometimes scenes with “rejuvenation” technologies in movies can be “conspicuous” and look “fake” if they are not backed up by context, an appropriate story, as was the case in Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate. The actor believes that in this tape the creators very skillfully used technology.

Harrison Ford added that he was “very pleased” with how he ended up being “rejuvenated” in the film, but that doesn’t mean he’d like to be young again.


“I’m really happy with my age. I like being older. Being young is great, but damn it, I could already be in the grave, but I’m still here and working, ”said Ford.

Earlier, the actor shared that in “Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Fate” he will play the role of Indiana Jones for the last time. “This is the final film in the series and this is the last time I’ll play this character,” Ford told reporters.

After the premiere of the film at the Cannes Film Festival, the actor shed a tearwhen he said goodbye to his role to a 5-minute standing ovation. Prior to the premiere, Ford was also presented with an honorary Palme d’Or for lifetime achievement.

Harrison Ford played Indiana Jones in the films: Indiana Jones and the Wheel of Doom (2023), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” (2008).
