The fifth “Indiana Jones” film awaits us in the summer. An extremely unpopular character from the previous part is missing, but we still learn about her fate.
Indiana Jones and the Call of Fate
In “Indiana Jones and the Call of Fate” Harrison Ford will be seen as a whip-wielding archaeologist for the very last time. Fortunately, the now 80-year-old actor has support from Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), who embodies his goddaughter Helena. Shia LaBeouf’s character Muttwho was introduced as Indy’s son in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will be absent.
However, director promises James Mangold (“Le Mans 66: Against every chance”) in an interview with Entertainment Weeklythat the viewers “will find out what happened to him”. Whatever happened to Mutt that prevents him from appearing in the new film, few viewers are likely to mourn his passing. After all, the character was notoriously unpopular with fans and one of the many questionable decisions the controversial fourth installment made.

New Character Plays Central Role in Indiana Jones and Destiny’s Call
According to Mangold, Helena is the “catalyst” for the new film. She’s the daughter of a friend of Indy’s, whom we’ll meet in the film, and she’s in some trouble, which she takes to the archaeologist. However, the film will first start in 1944 and show a rejuvenated Indy before jumping to 1969, where he will be set for most of the time.
Mangold explains that he’s interested in throwing a hero like Indy into a morally ambivalent world like the 1960s. Nevertheless, “Indiana Jones and the Call of Destiny” should be a typical “Indiana Jones” film:
“I think we’re trying to find a balance between being accurate and realistic about the situation the character is in at this point in his life […] At the same time we try to continue what the title of our film promises, which is a romp and a wonderful adventure with action and chivalry and narrow escapes and ingenious solutions to devilish problems. It’s an Indiana Jones movie.”
Fans can look forward to the June 29, 2023 look forward to the adventure film hitting the cinemas in this country.
