Harrison Ford got a virtual facelift during a sequence in

Indiana Jones 5


For the opening scene of the feature film set in a period between

The Last Crusade

(1989) and

The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

(2008), director James Mangold wanted to give the impression of having unearthed images never views of previous footage.

Obviously, it would have been difficult to produce this illusion with a Harrison Ford which is now in its 80s…

Suddenly, the filmmaker shot new scenes with the actor before coupling them to much older archive footage using software.

A technology that also made it possible to reproduce the jacket worn by the adventurer in the original 1981 film.


“Even though we're going to talk about it in terms of technology, my wish is that you look at this and say to yourself, 'Oh my God, they found some old footage.

It was shot 40 years ago,'” producer Kathleen Kennedy said in an interview with Empire.

A technological feat that also surprised and even troubled Harrison Ford.

"It's the first time that I've seen this and that I believe in it", he assured the magazine, before specifying that he had "no desire to know how it works".

And make no mistake about it, Harrison Ford has no nostalgia for his younger years.

"I'm proud to have won my age," he concluded.

The release of

Indiana Jones 5

is set for summer 2023. It will feature Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Antonio Banderas and John Rhys-Davies.
