Globetrotting archaeology professor and adventurer Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) has to cancel his retirement plans to stop neo-Nazis from changing the course of history in the latest trailer of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, dropped by Disney during the Star Wars Celebration in London.

In the two-minute-eight-second-long trailer, we see Indiana Jones gearing up for his retirement as a professor. However, on his retirement day, his goddaughter Helena Shaw (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) talks about ‘Dial of Destiny’, a relic Jones found during World War 2 that can change the course of history. They’re soon chased by Nazi conspirators living in America.


The trailer then turns back the clock to show Indiana’s unseen adventures during World War 2 and his encounter with Jürgen Voller (Mads Mikkelsen), a Nazi officer searching for the ‘Dial of Destiny’. We also see action-packed rickshaw chases and horse riding in the subways as John Williams’ famous theme music plays in the background. Now, Jones and his goddaughter must foil the neo-Nazi conspirators’ plan of rectifying Hitler’s mistakes during World War 2 by using the relic’s power.

Watch the trailer here:

The trailer promises an exhilarating fifth journey of Indiana Jones as he takes the leap of faith to save the world from succumbing to darkness. The trailer is filled with action-packed scenes. This time, Indi has help from his goddaughter and his old friends, especially Sallah (John Rhys-Davies).

Directed by Academy Award nominee James Mangold, who has helmed films like Logan (2017) and Ford v Ferrari (2019), Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is co-written by Mangold with Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth and David Koepp. The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Olivier Richters and Ethann Isidore.

This is the fifth film of the franchise and the sequel to 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The film franchise began in 1981 with the film Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark. In 1984, a prequel, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom was released. In 1989, the makers released a sequel, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. All four films were helmed by Steven Spielberg.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will hit the theatres on June 30.
