Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny—Friday, December 1, on Disney+
Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) returned to the big screen this past summer—and this Friday, he arrives on your favorite device thanks to Disney+! As a refresher: It’s 1969, and after teaching at New York’s Hunter College for more than a decade, Indy’s now ready to retire and live a quieter life… alone. But plans change when his estranged goddaughter Helena (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) turns up seeking a rare artifact that her father had entrusted to Indy years earlier: the Archimedes Dial, which is rumored to hold the power to find fissures in time. Globe-trotting, death-defying hijinks, of course, ensue. Additionally, look for a brand-new Indiana Jones documentary, Timeless Heroes—directed by acclaimed filmmaker Laurent Bouzereau—premiering on Disney+ simultaneously.

They are standing on a set that features furniture coming out of the floor at odd angles, as if from another dimension. Everyone except Muller-Janssen is wearing typical “villains”-style outfits—colorful spandex suits, masks, and the like.

Sure, that might not make a lot of sense to the uninitiated—but it ought to make you very curious to dive into these latest incredible adventures of the Fourteenth Doctor (David Tennant) as he hurtles his way through the galaxy. Allons-y!
