Indiana Jones and Harrison Ford will attend the international premiere of "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny" in Cannes on Thursday, one of the most anticipated events of the French Riviera festival.

Ford has stated that "Dial of Destiny" will be his final appearance as the character, and he will also receive an honorary Palme d'Or from the Cannes Film Festival. Last year, "Top Gun Maverick" and Tom Cruise were similarly honored at Cannes.

It is not the first "Indiana Jones" movie to debut at Cannes. "Indiana and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" debuted at the 2008 festival as the fourth installment. Critics and fans equally deemed "Crystal Skull" a misguided sequel, despite its $790 million worldwide gross.

This time around, "Dial of Destiny" hopes to have a similar, if not greater, global impact without the assistance of its renowned filmmakers. The new film, released on June 30 in the United States by the Walt Disney Company, is the first "Indiana" film not directed by Steven Spielberg or with a story credit to George Lucas. A film starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, and Mads Mikkelsen is instead directed by James Mangold ("Ford vs. Ferrari," "Logan").
