Disney’s CCXP Booth Features Indiana Jones 5 & The Mandalorian

Disney has brought their full arsenal to Brazil for the 2022 Comic Con Experience (CCXP). It’s a big time for the House of Mouse with several highly anticipated releases on the way from all corners of their entertainment empire. From Indiana Jones 5 you Elemental and everything in between, Disney has more than a few massive displays for attendees to take in. For those at home, however, Collider’s own Steve Weintraub snapped some pictures of everything on display at the massive convention.


Indiana Jones 5 Booth Prepares for Harrison Ford’s Final Outing

Plenty of attention for the year went towards hyping up Harrison Ford‘s final turn as the titular explorer in Indiana Jones 5. The display for the highly anticipated end cap to the franchise is a massive 3D rock structure framing the main image for the film of Indy treading through a dark cave with only a slight bit of light peeking through. A rope bridge and crates add to the overall aesthetic, giving the feeling of exploration. It sets the stage for the film’s panel at the convention which is sure to contain plenty of news regarding the film and, hopefully, a new teaser.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Following the disappointment of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Indiana Jones 5 has a lot to live up to. Currently though, there’s a lack of plot details for the film even though we know it’ll be a passing of the torch for the adventurer in his final on-screen appearance. Ford will get to share the screen with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renee Wilsonand Antonio Banderas. James Mangold will also take the reins from long-time director Stephen Spielberg who now shifts into an executive producer role. In another note of finality for the franchise, it’s also expected to be the final film for the longtime composer John Williams.

Audiences were first introduced to Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) back in 2019 as he traveled and bonded with the young Grogu, better known by fans as Baby Yoda.
