On Thursday, Harrison Ford made an appearance at a panel at the Star Wars Celebration convention currently unfolding in Anaheim. While speaking for a crowd gathered to see John Williams conduct an orchestral rendition of his iconic themes from Star Wars and the series Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+, which is premiering its first two episodes on Friday.

Ford announced that the film, which is being helmed by James Mangold, is nearly completed and it’s set for a Jue 30, 2023 release date. He also said that Williams will be contributing the score for the film, and it would almost be an insult to Williams if someone else even tried.

The actor also took time to make some jokes with Williams. “I told John on another occasion when we had a chance to be together that that music follows me wherever I go,” Ford began. He then quipped, “That music was playing on the speakers of the operating room when I had my last colonoscopy… I passed.”

Soon after Ford’s announcement, producers for the film released a first photo showing a silhouetted Indy crossing over a precarious bridge in what seems to be a dark, mysterious cave. Plot details or visuals of some of the film’s new cast members like Antonia BanderasPhoebe Waller-Bridge, and Mads Mikkelsen, are being kept much more private prior to release.

Ford said that working with director Mangold was a “wonderful experience,” and wrapped up with, “I’m really proud of the movie that we made. So I’ll be seeing you around campus.” If the June 2023 release date holds, it will have been 25 years since we last saw an Indy movie with Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
