Indiana Jones 5 set images disclose the film’s year of production and narrative specifics.
JONES, INDIANA Five set images from Glasgow have revealed the film’s year of production and storyline specifics.
Indiana Jones 5 resumes filming in the United Kingdom while Harrison Ford recovers from a shoulder injury received during a fight scene practice. The Lucasfilm blockbuster was recently filmed in Glasgow, Scotland, where the city streets were turned into a period New York City. The Indiana Jones 5 set photos corroborate the actual year and several narrative specifics, as well as the era of US history being reproduced.
The American storefronts, in particular, have been decked for a ticker tape procession.
And it’s the one that welcomed astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins home after the 1969 Moon Landing.
“Garcia’s Carpets welcome home Armstrong, Aldrin & Collins,” reads one window sign.
Intriguingly, Indiana Jones 5 has long been rumored to be set around the 1969 Moon Landing.
According to The Illuminerdi, Mads Mikkelsen’s villain is a Nazi scientist who is recruited by NASA to work on the Moon Landing project by the US government.
Since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was set in 1957, the fifth film would make sense to be set in 1969, around the time of the Moon Landing.
Furthermore, since the fourth film introduced aliens to the franchise, it wouldn’t be shocking if the UFOs return, especially if the new film again sends Indy into space.
In the meantime, prior set images from filming in the north of England show performers dressed in Nazi uniforms from World War II beside wartime vehicles with swastikas.
Ford has been seen sporting dots on his face for digital de-aging, implying that there would be World War II flashbacks.
In the wartime scenario, a stuntman on a bike was observed wearing a star mask.
Given that the original Indiana Jones trilogy was set in the 1930s, and the 1957 film Kingdom of the Crystal Skull only hinted at Indy’s impressive military record without revealing it on screen, this will be a special gift for fans.
During World War II, the archaeologist adventurer was recruited by the Office of Strategic Services and rose through the ranks of the US Army to the rank of colonel.
In unknown roles, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Toby Jones will join Ford and Mikkelsen in Indiana Jones 5.
