INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY Star Harrison Ford Dismisses Recent Passing Of The Torch Rumors

Despite denials from director James Mangold, theories continue to swirl that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny ends with Harrison Ford passing the torch to a new actor, and he's now weighing in...

Even though director James Mangold recently debunked them, rumours and theories that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will end with some sort of passing of the torch continue doing the rounds online. For many, that's only fuelling their outrage at a movie they have deemed "too woke" simply because it introduces Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Helena, Indy's goddaughter. 

While there was a time Lucasfilm considered casting a new actor as Indiana Jones (Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt was eyed for the role), a very vocal backlash put an end to that. 

Even so, many fans remain convinced The Dial of Destiny will conclude with the iconic adventurer's death, leaving Helena to take over his gig in what would then become a female-led action franchise. During a recent interview (shared via ActioNewz.com), Harrison Ford was asked if he's passing the baton to Waller-Bridge, and his response was a blunt one. 

"No, I’m just telling a story," the legendary actor says in the video below. "Telling a story. You’ll see. You’ll see. I hope you like it."

This lines up with recent comments from Mangold who took to Twitter to say, "One more time. No one is 'taking over' or replacing Indy or donning his hat nor is he being 'erased' [through] some contrivance - and he never was, not not in any cut or script - but trolls will troll - that’s how they get their clicks."

With Mangold at the helm, we've been anticipating Indiana Jones 5 being something special, and all signs point to it eventually ranking among 2023's best movies. Ford's long-awaited return as the iconic adventurer is incredibly exciting, especially as we'll be following him both in the late 1960s and as a younger man. Will we say a permanent goodbye to Indy here? It seems likely.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is set to be released in theaters on June 30, 2023.
