Harrison Ford loses decades of wrinkles in de-aged ‘Indiana Jones 5’ trailer

Harrison Ford is getting the Benjamin Button treatment for his upcoming movie “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.” As advised earlier by the director James Mangold Ford who is currently 80 years old, would appear to be decades younger with the help of de-aging technology. The reason for the same is that the fifth and final installment of the franchise would open in 1944, which is eight years after the events in the 1981 “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

It has been four decades since then, and understandably, Ford is not looking exactly how he used to do. Hence the visual effects and Industrial Light & Magic software had worked with old footage of Ford from the previous movies, which they could match and impose to new footage.

In an interview with Empire, producer Kathleen Kennedy said that she knows this will be talked about in terms of technology, which one watches and go. She hoped they would find the footage they had shot the same 40 years ago. She said that they are dropping Ford into an adventure that Indy is looking forward to, and then instantly, you get that feeling that they are in an Indian Jones Movie.

Ford had also previously admitted that seeing his younger version was a bit spooky. He said that this is the first time he has seen it for him to believe it, and he doesn’t even want to know how the same works. He further continued that it does not make him want to be young, and he is glad that he has earned his age. He also said that his last film in the franchise and, on a lighter note, said he would not fall for the movie again.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys Davies, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Oliver Richters, Ethann Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen are the main actors in the movie. Fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the film. It is going to be a cracking one.
