Will ‘Fantastic’ Upcoming Indiana Jones Movie Be Harrison Ford’s Last?

By Movieguide® Contributor

Harrison Ford shared several important details about his upcoming INDIANA JONES movie over the weekend. 

“Thank you for making these films such an incredible experience for all of us, giving the opportunity to us to make these films for you,” Ford said to the cheering audience. 

“I’m very proud to say that this one is fantastic,” he continued, crediting co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, as “one of the reasons.”

“INDIANA JONES movies are about fantasy and mystery, but they’re also about heart,” he continued. “We have a really human story to tell.”

Many of the people in the audience were surprised to see the normally-stoic Ford get choked up when speaking about one of his most iconic characters. 

The role obviously means a lot to Ford, but the actor did let fans know this would be the last time they would see him as Indiana Jones. 

“This is it!” he laughed. “I will not fall down for you again.”

The actor likes to do as many of his own stunts as he can, and has injured himself in the past on the set of INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. 

This might be the last time we see Ford as the adventurous archaeologist, but some have theorized there may be more movies in the works — with a new actor playing Indiana Jones. 

Movieguide® previously reported on the rumors:

With news of the upcoming INDIANA JONES movie, many fans speculated who would play “Indy” and if someone would take up the mantle after Harrison Ford’s iconic performance across four movies.

In 2021, fans thought that actor Chris Pratt, who starred in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and JURASSIC WORLD star fit the bill.

However, Pratt recently put those rumors to rest during a recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast.

“I don’t even know who Steven Spielberg is. Who? Steven Who?” Pratt joked. “No, aren’t they doing ‘Indiana Jones’ with Harrison Ford? All I know is I once saw a quote from Harrison Ford and I don’t even know if it was really him but it was enough to scare me, that was like, ‘When I die, Indiana Jones dies.’ And I’m like, am I gonna get haunted by the ghost of Harrison Ford one day when he dies if I play…?”

Pratt referenced one of Ford’s interviews with TODAY, where the STAR WARS actor said that no one else would be able to carry on his legacy.

“Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy,” he said in 2019.

But it appears that Ford will, in fact, star in the fifth installation directed by James Mangold.
