Attendees at the gala premiere of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in Los Angeles on Wednesday received more than just the new film. As well as the usual cast and creative minds to introduce the film, they were also treated to a surprise orchestral performance of the legendary Indiana Jones theme, conducted by John Williams himself.
Below you can see a clip from that performance:
Williams was introduced by Steven Spielberg, who at the launch of the James Mangold-directed film coyly acknowledged George Lucas and Harrison Ford, who shared the stage with him, as co-creators of Indiana Jones. Then he recognized someone who wasn’t there – Williams – just for the curtain to rise and reveal the 91-year-old Maestro and Orchestra.
The film officially hits theaters on June 30th. In addition to Harrison Ford, who returns as Indiana Jones, Dial of Destiny also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Shaunette Renee Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann and Toby with Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Oliver Richters and Ethan Isidore.
