Harrison Ford’s final Indiana Jones role will still have “humor.”

“I think what we’re trying to do is give an accurate and realistic assessment of where that character would be at this point in his life,” Mangold said of the final franchise installment with Harrison Ford.

Harrison Ford’s final performance as Indiana Jones will be a hilarious “romp” against a sad goodbye, director James Mangold promised.

Mangold has directed his fair share of heroic farewells with the X-Men standalone Logan, but the director explained that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny was always destined to strike a balance between bittersweet sentimentality and to be the signature humor that Steven Spielberg masterfully woven into the original films.

“I have no illusions that my job in making an Indiana Jones movie was to suddenly beat the humor out of it and turn it into a kind of dirge,” Mangold told Entertainment Weekly. “I think what we’re trying to do is give an accurate and realistic assessment of where this character would be in his life at this point, and do it honestly while also trying to carry on the essence of what our film’s title promises is a great adventure of action and chivalry and… skin-deep escapes and ingenious solutions to fiendish problems. It’s an Indiana Jones movie.”

Mangold continues: “I’m always interested in this idea of ​​a hero at sunset. What does the hero do when the world has no more room for him? I find it really interesting to try to look at classic heroes through the prism of our biased contemporary attitudes.”

So while Ford reprises his role as “a brilliant nerd who’s also a badass,” the film marks the last time Ford will be Indy on the big screen. “Dial of Destiny” culminates Indy’s story in 1969 with the rise of the space race and the Cold War.

“You really have to pay attention to how you’re trying to translate a pretty simplistic kind of black-hat, white-hat sensibility into a more complicated time,” Mangold said. “We’re trying to exploit that by jumping back to 1969 to a hero who’s used to a black and white world. [but finds himself] in a world that has turned gray.”

Dial of Destiny is the first Indiana Jones film since the 2008 revival of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Set 10 years after the events of Crystal Skull, the upcoming film also features a flashback on 1944 with an aging Ford.

Other leading roles are played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook and Mads Mikkelsen.

Mikkelsen praised Mangold’s “same vision” for the franchise and said the film “felt like a Spielberg film”.

“They go back a lot to the first and second films and get that original feel, the original Indy, something dense and epic,” Mikkelsen said earlier this year.

The Indiana Jones franchise began in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark, followed by Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade. Ford has portrayed the hero in all five films.
