Harrison Ford is slated to make his return to the big screen for his final appearance in the fifth installment of Indiana Jones. While he does reprise his role as the titular adventure seeker, Ford takes fans back in time, reminiscing the original trilogy days with the opening sequence.

In a recent interview with Empire, Ford’s Indiana Jones receives a visual effects makeover that de-ages the 80-year-old actor to appears as his age from the original trilogy. The opening sequence sets the scene in a castle in 1944 and sees Indiana pit against a group of Nazis. Ford discussed what it was like seeing himself de-aged, calling it “a little spooky.” He also added, “This is the first time I’ve seen it where I believe it…I don’t think I even want to know how it works, but it works. It doesn’t make me want to be young, though. I’m glad to have earned my age.”

Producer Kathleen Kennedy said of the de-aging scene, “My hope is that, although it will be talked about in terms of technology, you just watch it and go, ‘Oh my God, they just found footage. This was a thing they shot 40 years ago’.” She continues, “We’re dropping you into an adventure, something Indy is looking for, and instantly you have that feeling, ‘I’m in an Indiana Jones movie.’” Majority of Indiana Jones 5 takes place in 1969 and is set against the space run. The plot also returns to the roots of Raiders of the Lost Ark which sees Indiana face off against the Nazis.

The fifth film arrives at a time where Disney and Lucasfilm want to revive the franchise. Indiana Jones 5 is slated to hit theaters on June 30, 2023.

In other entertainment news, Quentin Tarantino has plans to return to TV next year.
