According to Reddit user LunekJones, who shared what he claims is a “full plot synopsis” of the film, at the end of the film, Mads Mikkelsen’s Doctor Jürgen Voller is able to complete the Dial of Destiny and attempts to use it to travel from return. in time to kill Hitler “to prevent Germany from [from] invading Poland and making this big mistake.”

However, Dial of Destiny does not take Voller to Sicily in 1939, instead transporting him, Indiana Jones, and Helena, who are aboard planes to the Roman siege of Syracuse.

Voller and the rest of the Germans end up dying in a plane crash, while Indy and Helena manage to escape the plane using a parachute.

Landing on the ground, Indiana Jones is met by Archimedes, who also retrieves the entire Dial of Destiny from Voller’s corpse. Archimedes proceeds to ensure that the Dial of Destiny can only transport users to it in Syracuse during the siege and at the same time obtains one of Voller’s watches which gives him knowledge about the device.

The plot synopsis explains: “When Helena tells him that Archimedes has “tampered” with the dial, ensuring that it is only sent back to Syracuse on the day of the siege so they can save it, we understand that it is thanks to this jump in time. who found his knowledge about watches and how to complete the dial.”

From there, LunekJones details that Indiana Jones does not want to return to his present, but would rather stay in Syracuse because he believes that “there is nothing for him in 1969.” Instead, Helena tries to convince Indy to return to the present, believing that if he stayed in the past, he would “change the course of history.”

Apparently, Indy isn’t convinced by Helena’s arguments, so he resorts to punching and knocking him out.

When Indy wakes up, he is back in 1969 in New York City in his bed. Then he “rebukes” [Helena for] having brought him back to the present even though there is nothing there for him.”

However, Helena replies that he has something to live for, and Marion shows up at her apartment with several purchases. The previous film made it clear that he and Marion were either divorced or on the verge of divorce, as the divorce papers were pinned to Indy’s refrigerator held up by a photo of Marion.

The two finally seem to reconcile whatever contrived problems the film presents for them to embrace in a kiss with the plot synopsis explaining that they “reconstruct the Raiders ship scene backwards before Indy kisses her.”

Finally, the film reportedly ends with a shot of the Indiana Jones hat on a clothesline outside the apartment with what appears to be Jones’s hand finally grabbing it from the clothesline as the camera zooms in on the hat in a small circle similar to the old Warner. Bros. cartoons.

LunekJones details: “The screen narrows down to a little circle like in a Tom & Jerry cartoon, surrounding the hat and seeming to end there… right before we see Indy’s hand (I can’t be 100% sure that It was yours now that I plan to come back to it, but it makes sense that it was) putting the hat back in. The end!!

Not surprisingly, Indiana Jones didn’t make the heroic choice and left that up to Waller-Bridge’s character. Ford described his character in an interview with Fandango as “not as strong, not as brave, not as caring, but about to go on a great adventure with a very fascinating set of compatriots and adversaries.”

In addition to Ford admitting that his character now lacks courage, bravery, and strength, Lucasfilm has also been captured by feminist ideology that mocks male characters.

In 2015, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy admitted to embracing this ideology throughout the company. She said during Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Summit: “The fact that The Walt Disney Company bought the company has been amazing because they’re very supportive of the fact that we’re trying to grow in the workforce at a number of women in executive positions. and in all positions within the company.”

“And with the films that we are making and with the protagonists that we are putting in the stories. So I get a huge amount of support with that,” he continued.

Kennedy later touted: “But we have 50% of our executive team are women. And six out of eight of the people in my history group are women. And I’m sure there are a lot of people who would be surprised that we’re making Star Wars movies and most of the people involved in developing those stories are women. And I think it’s making a big difference in the stories we’re trying to tell.”

Kennedy was not wrong when she admitted that this embrace of the ideology of feminism was making a big difference to the company’s stories. The public has abandoned many of Lucasfilm’s iconic properties and even The Walt Disney Company admits that many of them are no good.

Most recently, a report indicated that The Walt Disney Company would pull the Disney+ series Willow from the streaming platform just six months after its finale. This report came after the company’s CEO, Bob Iger, admitted that many of the Disney+ series they created “didn’t necessarily drive sub-growth.”

In fact, Iger detailed that the company would “take an impairment charge of approximately $1.5 to $1.8 billion” for the content they would remove from Disney+ and Hulu.

As defined by Indeed, an “impairment charge is a cost that shows a reduction in the book value of a specific asset on a balance sheet. This occurs when the book value of an asset exceeds its fair market value in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). While any asset can be charged for impairment, the most common impaired assets are intangible assets, inventory, goodwill, and even capital.

Not only are Lucasfilm productions removed from Disney+ and booked as impairment charges, but under Kennedy’s leadership, Lucasfilm lost money at the Star Wars movie box office. Alone: ​​A Star Wars Story.

Disney’s sequel trilogy also saw a massive drop at the box office with the force awakens grossing $2.064 billion at the worldwide box office. In the third film of the trilogy, the rise of skywalkerthe film alone grossed $1.072 billion at the worldwide box office.

After this decline, Star Wars has been relegated to the Disney+ streaming service and the company has announced numerous movies only to have them never come to fruition.
