After 15 years away from the limelight, Indiana Jones is about to swing his way back into theaters with the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

Harrison Ford's iconic adventurer will be joined by a whole host of new and returning characters, as Lucasfilm brings about the "final installment of the beloved franchise."

With Indiana Jones 5 being the swansong for this big-screen legend, there will be plenty of opportunity to honor both his past (in the form of some uncanny-looking flashback sequences) and what sort of legacy the character will leave going into the future. 

So, here is a look at the confirmed main actors making up the stacked cast of the upcoming James Mangold-directed send-off. 

Every Confirmed Actor & Character in Indiana Jones 5

1.) Harrison Ford - Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr.

Harrison Ford

After more than 40 years playing the character, the irreplaceable Harrison Ford will be back for one last ride as Indiana Jones in The Dial of Destiny. This college professor by day and globe-trotting archeologist by night will come face-to-face with a treasure that has eluded him for decades in the upcoming sequel, grappling with his past as he ages with the world around him. 

Ford has been headlining blockbusters for most of the last half-century. He is best known for his work as Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise and is set to stake his claim in the MCU with an upcoming role in Captain America: New World Order.

2.) Phoebe Waller-Bridge - Helena Shaw

Making her Indiana Jones debut in Dial of Destiny is English actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who joins the franchise as Helena Shaw, the god-daughter of Ford's titular adventurer. Director James Mangold recently told EW that Waller-Bridge's Helena serves as the "catalyst" of Indy 5, coming into the picture to set Indiana Jones on the adventure at the heart of the film. 

Waller-Bridge built quite the resume of the years, writing, directing, and starring in the hit comedy series Fleabag. She also appeared in Solo: A Star Wars Story as the foul-mouthed pilot droid L3-37

3.) Mads Mikkelsen -  Jürgen Voller

Mads Mikkelsen

Serving as Indiana Jones 5's main antagonist is Mads Mikkelsen as Jürgen Voller. Mikkelsen's Nazi general joins a long line of terrifying antagonists within the franchise, as - after leaving the Nazi party behind and being hired by NASA - he looks to gobble up power amidst the Space Race of the 1960s. 

The Dial of Destiny marks the second Lucasfilm project for the Danish actor, who previously played Galen Erso in the beloved Star Wars spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Fans will also recognize Mikkelsen for his time working within the MCU as Kaecilius in Doctor Strange

4.) Boyd Holbrook - Klaber

Amidst rumors of him joining the MCU's Fantastic Four film, Antonio Banderas lends his talents to The Dial of Destiny as Renaldo. Banderas' character has - what the actor described on the Inside Total Film podcast (via Collider) as - a "very small" role in the film, being a friend of Indy who comes to his aid when he is needed. 

In the movie, Banderas' Renaldo is Indy's loyal ally and an expert diver who helps the titular character and Helena Shaw to acquire the clue to finding the other half of the Antikythera mechanism. 

Despite successfully retrieving the clue, Renaldo later died after he was shot by Voller inside his boat.

Banderas has been a mainstay in Hollywood for years, appearing in films like Spy Kids, The Mask of Zorro, and the Shrek franchise as Puss in Boots.
