Harrison Ford broke down in tears while receiving a five-minute standing ovation for the fifth installment of Indiana Jones at the Cannes Film Festival.
It has been 15 years since the last film was released, which also starred Cate Blanchett and Shia LaBeouf.
The new movie, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, will see the archeologist rushing to get back a special dial that can change the course of history.
The 80-year-old star will be joined by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who plays Helena Shaw.
On May 18, fans at the Canes Film Festival were treated toa screening of the new movie.
According to Variety, Disney top executives, including CEO Bob Iger, flew to the premiere in France to see one of the most celebrated franchises in movie history.
Ford appeared emotional as he received a standing ovation.
“I’m very moved by this. They say when you’re about to die, you see your life flash before your eyes, and I just saw my life flash before my eyes,” he told the audience.
“A great part of my life, but not all of my life. My life has been enabled by my lovely wife, who has supported my passion and my dreams, and I’m grateful,” Ford continued.
“I love you, too,” he told the crowd. “But I’ve got a movie you ought to see. It’s right behind me. So let me get out of the way, and thank you again for this great honor.”
In a previous interview with French outlet Euro, Ford said that he wanted the latest movie to show the end of Jones’ career as a teacher.
“I believed in the character from the first film. We developed the character many times over the five films. And for this last part, I wanted this film to be able to tell the story of the end of his career as a teacher,” he said.
“We have been following Indiana Jones for 40 years and this film is the last. You have to consider the age of the character and how difficult it is for him to behave like before given the weight of the years,” Ford added.
