The Reel 360 News Team wonders if there will be snakes. You know, Indiana Jones famously hates snakes. The Walt Disney Company released the teaser and poster for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, the highly anticipated fifth installment of the iconic Indiana Jones franchise.

Starring Harrison Ford as the legendary hero archaeologist, and directed by James Mangold (Logan), the film does resemble a return to the form of the old Raiders’ films. Which after the almost unwatchable Indiana Jones and the Cave of the Crystal Skulls would be a reprieve.

The teaser also gives us our first look at Harrison Ford’s de-ageing effects. They look really good if the trailer is any indication. It’s pretty clear that the Dial of Destiny is some sort of time machine and we will be spending time with Indy in his prime. Watch the teaser:

LucasFilm also released the film’s first poster:

The teaser does leave us cautiously optimistic. We say cautiously because of the results of Crystal Skull as well as there has been chatter that the film was screened before test audiences and the results were not good. In fact, downright terrible.

It’s been rumored that five different endings were screened and all feature Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge replacing Ford, with the following being the worst ending and that it is the ending Kathleen Kennedy wants to go with.

SPOILER:

According to Cosmicbook News, the film ends with young Indy sacrificing himself to save his goddaughter, Helena, causing the adventuring archeologist to fade away. Helena picks up his hat and the movie ends with a montage of her in iconic Indiana Jones scenes set to the John Williams score.

It’s also been rumored that Kennedy and the studio are butting heads over the ending. Supposedly Kennedy wants this ending and the studio is balking.

Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Oliver Richters, Ethann Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen.

The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and Disney Legend 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 open in theaters on Friday, June 30, 2023. Hopefully, there will be snakes.
