Harrison Ford was given a hero’s send-off for his cherished Indiana Jones persona.
The audience at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival awarded the actor a five-minute standing ovation for the franchise’s fifth installment.
Ford, who has portrayed Indiana Jones for four decades, wept multiple times at the opening of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
When he glanced out at his loved ones and peers, he saw nothing but love and devotion.
Speaking to the audience, the 80-year-old expressed his gratitude for the honour for his decades-long work.
He was also surprised with a Palme d’Or, the highest honour granted at the Cannes Film Festival.
A collection of his most memorable film roles, ranging from Star Wars to The Fugitive.
Ford expressed that he was very moved by this. They say that when one is about to die, one’s life flashes before one’s eyes, and he just saw his. A significant portion of his life, but not all of his life.
He continued that his life has been enabled by his lovely wife, who has stood by his passion and dreams, and he is grateful.
He then addressed the crowd, saying that he adored them as well. But he has a movie one should watch. It’s directly behind him. He again thanked them for this great honor.

The fifth Indiana Jones film was then shown to spectators, months after the first trailers were released in September, with co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and director James Mangold.
When everyone saw it, Ford got choked up and said farewell to his portrayal of Indiana Jones.
Indiana Jones films are about imagination and mystery, but they’re also about heart, he remarked. They have a really great story to tell, as well as a movie that will kick one’s ass.
Ford applauded his on-screen co-star, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with a choke in his throat.
Unfortunately, Ford also hinted that this current Indiana Jones film might be his last.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be released in theaters on June 30, 2023.
