Actor Harrison Ford presented the fifth Indiana Jones movie at Disney’s D23 show near Los Angeles, AFP and Reuters reported.
About 6,000 people gave the 80-year-old actor a standing ovation.
“I’m very proud to say it’s fantastic,” said Harrison Ford, visibly excited. “And that’s one of the reasons,” he pointed to the film’s other star, Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
“Following this guy is exhausting,” she replied.
Harrison Ford has said that this is his last performance as Indiana Jones. The yet-to-be-titled film will be released on June 30, 2023. It also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Toby Jones and Antonio Banderas. For the first time, the director is not Steven Spielberg, but James Mangold.
“Lucasfilm” showed a teaser of its popular space series “The Mandalorian”. Actors Pedro Pascal, Giancarlo Esposito, Katie Sackhoff attended the presentation.
Spectators could also immerse themselves in the three-dimensional world of “Avatar: The Nature of Water” – the long-awaited sequel to James Cameron’s film.
Angela Bassett and Winston Duke were among the presenters for Black Panther: Wakana Forever, which will be released in November. It is not yet clear how its creators are dealing with the death of Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer in 2020. The captions say that he has passed away and it seems that the character’s sister Shuri (Leticia Wright) may be the next Black Panther.
“We had to be at his level, which is exceptional,” Bassett said. “And we did.”
The biennial Disney expo was cut short by the pandemic. Fans from all over the world flocked to the new edition.
