Learn how the franchise finale’s fast-paced tuk-tuk sequence was brought to life in an exclusive Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny clip. The fifth and final installment in the beloved adventure series saw Harrison Ford’s eponymous hero facing retirement but being pulled into one final journey by his goddaughter Helena to find a powerful artifact sought after by her late father and now by former Nazi scientist Jürgen Voller. Alongside Ford, the ensemble Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny cast included Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas, and John Rhys-Davies.

In honor of the movie’s digital premiere, Screen Rant is proud to present an exclusive Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny behind-the-scenes video. The featurette, as seen above, offers a detailed look at the creation of the sequel’s fast-paced tuk-tuk sequence, including the pre-viz footage of Ford’s eponymous hero racing through the streets of Tangier. The BTS video also reveals how much of the scene was shot with stunt performers in favor of Ford driving the vehicle.


How The Dial of Destiny Closed Out Indiana Jones’ Story

Once again pairing the seasoned archaeologist with a younger counterpart, the final Indiana Jones installment continued the franchise’s streak of personal stories for Ford’s adventurer following The Last Crusade with his father, Sean Connery’s Henry Jones, and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull with both Karen Allen’s Marion Ravenwood and their son he didn’t know he had, Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt. Now journeying alongside his goddaughter Helena, The Dial of Destiny saw Jones reflecting on his years of life-threatening quests and his various mistakes, including not talking Mutt out of joining the army, leading to his death in the Vietnam War, and his and Marion’s estrangement.

This, in turn, nearly saw Indy ready to hang up his hat in another era entirely as he was flown back in time in The Dial of Destiny‘s polarizing ending landing him in Syracuse in 212 BC, where he wants to remain and succumb to his wounds as he feels there’s nothing to return to. After failing to talk him into coming back, Helena would knock Indy out and fly him back with the help of her young sidekick, Ethann Isidore’s Teddy. Upon waking back in his apartment, Indy is reunited with Marion, with whom he finally shows vulnerability for the grief they both endured, and recreate Raiders of the Lost Ark‘s kissing-of-the-wounds scene.

Though the final shot sees the adventurer reclaiming his hat, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny ultimately retired Ford’s hero on an appropriately emotional note, avoiding killing off its hero as James Mangold’s Logan did, while still properly closing out his time on screen. Lucasfilm is similarly committed to keeping The Dial of Destiny as the conclusion to the franchise, assuring Ford will not be recast in a future project, and reportedly cancelling a prequel Disney+ show in favor of expanding the streamer’s Star Wars roster.
