John Williams just said that he’s done scoring music for films. Once he’s finished the music for “Indiana Jones 5”, that’s it. He’s done. He said that Harrison Ford is also retiring and calling it quits after Indy 5. Nothing is really official as of this point but both of these guys are already talking about calling it quits.
It’s understandable so ’cause both men are getting old and getting tired. John’s been scoring for films since the 50’s. He’s scored films for so many iconic movies and did a lot of films with Steven Spielberg especially. John is definitely the master and the king of film scoring. What I love about John’s composing style is that he’s able to make scores that sticks to your head. His scores are so catchy and memorable likes “Jaws”, “Superman”, “ET”, “Star Wars”… his scores are so memorable that you can even sing along to them.
As far as Harrison retirement goes… not only that he’s aging… I think I remember Harrison suffering two injuries on two different films. He broke his leg filming “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens” and then he injured his shoulder on “Indy 5”. After having those major injuries, that must be when he said, “I can’t do this anymore, after Indy 5, I’m done”. I don’t think Harrison can do his own stunts anymore in action sequences.
Harrison had a great career run, though as I’ve always been a massive fan of his.
I think Indy 5 would be a perfect last movie for them to go out with. Go out on a high note, ya know?
Harrison was able to bring back all of his iconic characters to the big screen for one last time. He brought back Han Solo, Rick Deckard “Blade Runner: 2049” and now Indy for one final film. Harrison is a talented actor. Always has been. I’ve watched his films throughout the years of my life and he’s done every genre pretty much.
Well deserved retirement for both men. I’m all for it. Can’t wait for “Indy 5” and I’m sure we’ll get our first teaser trailer this summer and a title reveal too.
