What’s “Dial of Destiny” About?
In “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” the legendary explorer finds himself in 1969, on the brink of retirement. However, as is often the case, adventure beckons when his goddaughter, Helena, reconnects with him after many years. This reunion isn’t merely social, as Helena is in search of the “dial of destiny.” Indy is thrust headfirst into her quest when Voller, a former Nazi turned NASA scientist, begins pursuing the artifact. Voller aims to rectify Hitler’s “mistakes,” but Indiana Jones won’t allow that to happen under his watch.

Throughout his 42-year history, Indiana Jones has delivered four immensely successful cinematic gems: “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Temple of Doom,” “Last Crusade,” and “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” While some adventures are more beloved than others, “Dial of Destiny” seeks to recapture the magic of the original 80s trilogy. The film will even feature flashbacks of Ford’s youthful Indy, made possible by cutting-edge de-aging technology. This final adventure is also positioned as an emotional farewell to one of cinema’s greatest heroes.
