New Indiana Jones 5 set photos show the Apollo 11 ticker-tape parade from New York City in 1969.
However, this scene wasn’t filmed in New York, but rather in Glasgow, Scotland. As seen in the photos taken by Gordon Smith, the scene features plenty of parade festivities. The historic parade had six million attendees and originally took place on August 13, 1969. It honored Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin Jr.
The photographer Gordon Smith also notes that “Indy was being chased on horseback by a guy on a motorbike and cars. Also looks like they were setting up a gag for a banner to be ripped in two.”

Indiana Jones 5 will once again be led by Harrison Ford as he reprises one of his most iconic roles as the titular explorer. Joining him as the female lead is Emmy and Golden Globe winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The final installment will also feature the introduction of other franchise newcomers Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, and Shaunette Renée Wilson, who have been cast in undisclosed roles.
The long-awaited film is being directed by Oscar nominee James Mangold (Logan) from a new screenplay he is co-writing with Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, who collaborated on Ford v Ferrari. Mangold took over the director’s chair last year after Steven Spielberg exited his directorial duties for the film. Despite his exit, he will still remain part of the film’s production as a producer.
Indiana Jones 5 will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, original franchise director Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with John Williams returning to score the film, continuing a musical journey that began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The untitled project is currently scheduled to be released on July 29, 2022.
