Amidst all the news shared at Star Wars Celebration 2023, Lucasfilm also shared a brand new trailer and some updates on Indiana Jones 5.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy shared that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be approximately 2 hours and 22 minutes in length.
“It’s around 2 hours and 22-23 minutes, because runtime seems to be a hot topic. I will say that the early movies were shorter. They were under two [hours] 15 [minutes]. And we talked about that quite a bit, so now I see why maybe they’re interested in it. But as you know, with runtime, it’s all about how you feel, right?”
A 2-hour-23-minute runtime would make Indiana Jones 5 the longest movie of the franchise.
It was also confirmed that Dial of Destiny will be the final movie in the Indiana Jones franchise.
Harrison Ford returns as the legendary hero archaeologist in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the iconic “Indiana Jones” franchise, which is directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”). Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), John Rhys-Davies (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Shaunette Renee Wilson (“Black Panther”), Thomas Kretschmann (“Das Boot”), Toby Jones (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Oliver Richters (“Black Widow”), Ethann Isidore (“Mortel”) and Mads Mikkelsen (“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”).
Directed by James Mangold, the film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serving as executive producers.
John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, is once again composing the score.
The film will release in theaters on June 28 in France and June 30 in the U.S.
