Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny debuted earlier this month at the Cannes Film Festival ahead of its international release this June. While most reactions from fans seemed positive coming out of the showing, critics at the festival viewed the film has “largely unnecessary,” landing it at a dismal 49% on Rotten Tomatoes. With fans already buying their tickets, only time will tell if the film will serve as a fitting end for Harrison Ford’s iconic role, or if it will just end up another Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The future of Indiana Jones
In addition to Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Disney and Lucasfilm are also developing a new series set within the same world as the films. The series is being envisioned as a prequel to 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, with a young version of Abner Ravenwood taking on a central role. Abner is the father of Karen Allen’s Marion Ravenwood and the mentor of Indiana Jones.
If the television series ends up moving forward, the Indiana Jones franchise would be returning to the small screen for the first time since the 1990s. Indy was previously the face of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on ABC, as well as four television specials from the Family Channel, the network that is now known as Freeform. Harrison Ford made an apppearance in one episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which also starred Sean Patrick Flanery, Corey Carrier and George Hall, with the four actors playing the titular hero across various stages of his life.
Directed by James Mangold, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Toby Jones. Mangold co-wrote the script alongside Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth.
