That would cool if he was in a flashback scene!

Connery didn't come out retirement for KOTCS. What makes you think he will for a prequel or flashback?

There was no specific thread about this so it stays.

What if only his voice returned? Say, if the first reel was a WWII flashback and Connery was at the base providing vital information and wisecracks to Indy's truck, plane or platoon?

I don't even know if he'd even do a voice. The thread is called Sean Conner not Henrny Jones. They could get a younger Henry for it like in YIC.

Voice work is all he does these days, probably without leaving the Bahamas. People would know his voice and/or would expect to hear it, however briefly. His return to movies would generate a lot of press.

I never seen the big deal about Sean Connery. I honestly don't care if he shows up or not.

He already did a voice-over in "Last Crusade" with Alex Hyde-White playing a younger Henry Sr.'s arm & hand.

I really don't get what the big deal is about sean connery and his character. He's really not the first person I'd like to see return.

I'd probably go for Indiana Jones as being the first person

Like Last crusade, it had an opening set prior to the films date of 1938...I believe it was 1912...anyway, Indy V may have a similar approach, with the date like 1950....the movie can still be a sequel to KOTCS, but have the intro set years before it....that is my two cents

I think thats a good Indea ahem... idea. in KOTCS Indy only says first I lost dad , then marcus. Jones senior could be missing ,presumed dead, say in 1950, then indy discovers something or other that leads to Jones Sr (the 1st) being found. Guaranteed it will end with the 3 Jones having a beer or something!

He could easily do a voice. I bet they could find someone with a siialr voice and save alot of money. Henry biend presumable dead isn't such a great idea IMO.

I can't believe I didn't think of that. It's the most obvious way for them to do it.

We never here that Henry Sr is dead. Maybe he just went missing and Indy will be on a quest to find him?

Long shot but they could play that card if they chose to. I prefer him dead I think so it probably would be a flashback...

Unless this is indeed a time travel story as I mentioned wanting a few times. Toss in Indy racing AGAINST Shia and this could be cool as hell.

^^ no, no...he IS dead in KOTCS..."Somewhere your grandpa is laughing"...that line pretty much says it all...sorry...to have Jones Sr. in Indy V, it has to be a prequel, an intro set in the early 50's, or some sort of McGuffin that would bring back the dead (highly unlikely)...

Maybe the prolog of Indy 5 is a flashback to where and why Henry Sr. died and later on in the movie this is connected to the macguffin and/or the villain.

Look, I admit it would be a stretch, but "somewhere your grandpa is laughing" like COULD apply to him being missing somewhere. Maybe looking for Abner. Who knows. I'm just saying if they wanted to pull something like that they seem to have left that option open. Not saying they should.

Reminds me of the oneliner: 'I'm sure my Dad is looking down on us now... he's not dead: just very condescending'.
