Legendary composer John Williams, who performed at the Hollywood Bowl last night, debuted the part of the original soundtrack called ‘Helena’s Theme’ from the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones film at a recent concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
Indiana Jones 5: John Williams premieres Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s ‘Helena’s theme’ music at Hollywood Bowl
According to Variety, although the fifth Harrison Ford-starring entry is still untitled and doesn’t arrive in theaters until next June, Williams introduced the track by discussing its title — in reference to actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s character in the film — and added that he had recorded music for the James Mangold-directed film one week ago.
Williams described the Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s character, Helena, as: “She’s an adventuress, and she’s also a femme fatale, she’s many many things. And her music, she has lyrical music like an old movie star would look like except that she’s young and beautiful and wonderful. And here’s Helena’s Theme like six months too early.” Waller-Bridge will be joined by co-stars Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas and Olivier Richters.
He faced the crowd and also described a conversation he had with “Indiana Jones 5” director James Mangold, “[I was] having a chat with our wonderful director Jim Mangold, who’s the most fantastic man, and last week as we recorded the music, Jim said, ‘Why don’t you play it at the Bowl next week?’ I said, ‘Well, Jim, the picture’s not coming out until next year.’ ‘That doesn’t matter! Play it at the Bowl!’ So here is Phoebe’s theme.”“
Indiana Jones 5 will arrive in theaters on June 30, 2023. Check out the theme music below!
