Harrison Ford “always wanted a final chapter” in his ‘Indiana Jones’ saga, according to the director.

The 80-year-old actor has played the eponymous role in the money-spinning film franchise since 1981, and he appreciated the opportunity to recreate the character in ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’.

“I’d always wanted a final chapter in the story,” Harrison said to The Hollywood Reporter.

“We started thinking about it some years ago. Because he was such a physical character, my desire – all of our ambition – was to come up with a story that dealt with the reality of his age.

“I wanted to see him weakened and resurrected by whatever the plot was and whoever the characters were.” And once we had a plot that felt good to everyone, we pushed ahead.”

Throughout his career, Harrison has been in some of the most popular film series of all time, including “Indiana Jones,” “Star Wars,” and “Blade Runner.”

The renowned actor believes that he has always enjoyed bringing his characters back to life.

“I’ve always felt, and the people that I’ve worked with have always felt, that we need to bring something new to the mix,” Harrison, who rose to fame as Han Solo in the ‘Star Wars’ films, said.

“If we’re going to make another Indiana Jones film, the key question is, ‘What new thing are we going to learn about Indiana Jones?'” Because if you don’t advance the character as the plot progresses, you’ll be out of rhythm.

“I have not been disappointed by any of those films that I’ve done where I’ve done it over – that I can think of right now.”
