Star Wars Celebration might normally be mainly about, well, Star Wars. However, Lucasfilm does more than just Star Wars. Previously at Star Wars Celebration a look at, what was then, an upcoming Willow series was revealed. On the opening day of Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023, Lucasfilm shared a new trailer for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. The trailer wasn’t all that was shown, however at Star Wars Celebration.
Along with the trailer, six minutes of the film was shown to those in attendance. It showed everything fans would hope one would see. The six minute of clips included tuk-tuk races around Moroccan streets, Indy back on a horse riding through a New York street parade and also jumping out of a burning plane with Waller-Bridge. There is also a scene with a giant rolling boulder. Waller-Bridge’s character also describes Indy as an “aging grave robber.” Reports are that the crowd in London loved it all.
There also was a little more clarity as to what is being sought in this film. Both Indiana Jones and the villain Voller, portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen, are after an ancient device. Voller says of it, “Hitler made mistakes and with this I will correct them all.”
