As the countdown to the release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny continues, Total Film magazine has unveiled a cover story with an exclusive look at this newest Lucasfilm adventure. In addition to some never-before-seen images from the film, readers can check out exclusive interviews with director James Mangold and cast members including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, and of course, the one and only Harrison Ford.
Ford confirmed with Total Film that this will be his last appearance as Indiana Jones. “This is the final film in the series,” he said, “and this is the last time I’ll play the character. I anticipate that it will be the last time that he appears in a film.”
Dial of Destiny marks the continuation of a Lucasfilm story that spans more than four decades. “I’ve been able to deliver amazing films developed by Steven [Spielberg] and George [Lucas] over a 40-year period,” Ford explained, “and to end it not with a whimper, but a bang, has been my greatest ambition for this excursion.”
Total Film also revealed that Steven Spielberg himself has recently seen the film, commenting that “It’s really, really a good Indiana Jones film. I’m really proud of what Jim has done with it.”
