Speak with esquireFord revealed that an early scene where Indy wakes up in his underwear was his idea. He mentioned that a big selling point for returning to the role of Indiana Jones was meeting an older Indiana Jones.

“Yes. That’s why I wanted to do the film. I wanted to know what happened to him and how he dealt with it. (Director James) Mangold and I worked closely together, especially in that scene,” said Ford Waking up with an empty glass in my hand was my idea, I wanted to see Indiana Jones at a low point and build it from the ground up.”

Ford’s comments about Jones’ change echo those of director James Mangold. Mangold had previously said the film would also explore a changing world around Jones – a world the legend might not recognize.
