The actor also talked about the technology and the de-aging criticism he received for his Indiana Jones film. Ford said,
“It’s not a kind of Photoshop magic that’s what I looked like 35 years ago. Because Lucasfilm has every frame of film that we’ve made together over all of these years. And this process, this scientific mining of this library, this was put to good use.”
