Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate is coming to theaters soon, however the film had a chance to arrive a bit early via the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, where it was screened before the press and other important guests. Among many of the curious details about this production, Harrison Ford reveals that at first he did not agree with rejuvenating his character’s face through computer-generated images, a technique that in recent years has been frequently used to remove some years to the most respected and veteran stars of the entertainment industry.

Famed archaeologist and adventurer, Indiana Jones, is back for another adventure, making it clear that age doesn’t matter for these things, and that a figure as heroic as ever is up for one more journey. The Dial of Fate brings us back to the character that charmed everyone in the eighties, and will even give us a glimpse of his youth through de-aging or facial rejuvenation. Harrison Ford, who is now 80 years old, talks about this particular detail, admitting that he didn’t initially agree with the idea. Now things are different.
I know that’s my face. It’s not some kind of Photoshop magic – this was how I looked 35 years ago. Because Lucasfilm has all the stills from the movie we’ve made together over all these years. And this process, this scientific extraction from this library, was given a good [uso]. It’s just a trick unless it’s backed by a story, and it stands out if it’s not honest, if it’s not real… I mean emotionally real. So I think it was used very cleverly.
