Indiana Jones will be taking on a familiar adversary in the upcoming fifth instalment of the Harrison Ford film series. According to Empire, Indiana Jones 5 will pit the part-time archeology professor against Nazis — this time in the 1960s.

Among other revelations, it was revealed that the plot of IJ5 will center around the space race between the United States and Soviet Union in 1969. Though it’s unclear exactly how Ford’s character factors into the Cold War competition, co-screenwriter Jez Butterworth laid out a clear source of contention for Indy’s anti-Nazi sentiments. “The simple fact is that the moon-landing program was run by a bunch of ex-Nazis,” he shared. “How ‘ex’ they are is the question. And it gets up Indy’s nose.”

It appears Indy will be directing his brand of justice toward Voller, the lead villain played by Mads Mikkelsen and based on Nazi scientist/eventual NASA engineer Wernher von Braun. The actor hinted at his character’s motivations, sharing, “He’s a man who would like to correct some of the mistakes of the past… There is something that could make the world a much better place to live in. He would love to get his hands on it. Indiana Jones wants to get his hands on it as well. And so, we have a story.”

Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled to arrive in theatres on June 30th, 2023.
