Don’t let your eyes deceive you when you see the yet to be titled fifth installment of the “Indiana Jones” franchise. Harrison Ford is not actually aging backward.
Thanks to special visual effects, the 80-year-old can be made to look like the young man he once was when filming the earlier movies.
Utilizing ILM software, the film is able to use old footage of Ford from previous movies and impose it on new footage.
“My hope is that, although it will be talked about in terms of technology, you just watch it and go, ‘Oh my God, they just found footage. This was a thing they shot 40 years ago,’” producer Kathleen Kennedy shared with Empire Magazine.
Harrison Ford will star alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook and John Rhys-Davies in the new "Indiana Jones" film.

Even Ford was astonished at how young he looked on screen.
“It’s a little spooky,” he said. “I don’t think I even want to know how it works, but it works.”
Although aesthetically unique, Ford does not yearn for the “good ’ol days.”
“Doesn’t make me want to be young, though,” he added. “I’m glad to have earned my age.”

“Indiana Jones 5” will transport viewers to 1944, where Nazis are swarming a castle.
“And then we fall out, and you find yourself in 1969,” director James Mangold said.
“The audience doesn’t experience the change between the ‘40s and ‘60s as an intellectual conceit but literally experiences the buccaneering spirit of those early days … and then the beginning of now,” he shared.
