The video is four minutes long, front-ended by Ford, the director James Mangoldand manufacturers Kathleen Kennedy And Steven Spielberg reminiscing about recapture the feeling of Indiana Jones Movies, give their fans the best look at how Lucasfilm de-aged Ford. The 15-minute opening sequence features Indy’s flashbacks at the end of World War II in 1944 on a train full of Nazis trying to collect some of the world’s best artifacts. The biggest hurdle for the filmmakers was getting Ford to look the way he did in the 80s when the original. Indiana Jones trilogy was shot. Lucasfilm used their catalog of images they collected from all of their Ford theater projects to begin the de-aging process.

There’s a great new behind-the-scenes look at Ford in a suit with a tracking dot on his face doing what Indy does best. Ford even joked about how his voice has changed since the ’80s, but that’s not a problem for someone as talented as he is.

Everything from Wilhelm’s vocals to camera moments reminiscent of Indy’s past are there, but Mangold and Ford don’t play the hit songs. Call of Destiny Not nostalgia for nostalgia’s sake. This is a beautiful adventure film that focuses on old Indy feeling like he’s lost time, just like all the treasures he’s been hunting for years. That rich emotional tone makes this a mature and honest exploration of coming of age. How we are never too old to do what we love despite what some in our world would lead us to believe. Mangold provides the exciting action that fans have come to love from this particular franchise, but he never forgets the emotional weight and gravitas that accompanies Indy in all his adventures. The box office may not reflect that, though Call of Destiny Will be remembered for giving Ford a great, fit, and tear-jerking export. Indiana Jones.
