Harrison Ford reveals release date for Indiana Jones 5
Anaheim, California - Harrison Ford has confirmed that the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise will hit cinemas in late June next year.
The veteran actor delivered the news following a live performance of the movie's world-famous theme tune by legendary composer John Williams at Disney's Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California.
Joining Williams onstage in a surprise appearance, Ford congratulated him on his recent 90th birthday and told him the music to the Indiana Jones franchise "follows me everywhere I go."
"You know, I'm happy about it," he said, to laughs from audience members.
"That music was playing in the operating room when I had my last colonoscopy."
Ford added that the latest film, featuring a score by Williams, was "almost completed" and he was "really proud" of it.
He said the film, which has suffered production delays, will be released on June 30, 2023.
"I'm really proud of the movie that we made... so I'll be seeing you around campus," Ford said.
