Iconic actor Harrison Ford broke down in tears while he received a standing ovation following the premiere of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny at the Cannes Film Festival.

Ford, 80 years old, has confirmed that this will be his final time playing the legendary Indiana Jones, who he first portrayed in the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark.

“They say when you’re about to die you see your life flash before your eyes. And I just saw my life flash before my eyes,” a teary-eyed Ford said. “A great part of my life but not all of my life.”

“You’ve given my life purpose and meaning and I’m grateful for that. So grateful to have the opportunity to work with others like Phoebe and Mads. I am deeply moved by this honor.”

In addition to Raiders of the Lost Ark and Dial of Destiny, Ford has also featured as the character in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Alongside the legendary Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, and Antonio Banderas.

Here is the official synopsis for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, courtesy of Lucasfilm:

Daredevil archaeologist Indiana Jones races against time to retrieve a legendary dial that can change the course of history. Accompanied by his goddaughter, he soon finds himself squaring off against Jürgen Voller, a former Nazi who works for NASA.
