John Williams talks about his withdrawal from cinema
John Williams is one of the most famous composers of all time. His creations in films like Star Wars and Indiana Jones are iconic, and are part of today’s collective culture.

In a recent interview with Associated Press, Williams said that Indiana Jones’s film would be his latest work as a composer for films, although he would not move away from the musical world, since he would love to continue working on concerts. This was what who commented on this:
At this time I am working on‘ Indiana Jones 5 ’, which I think Harrison Ford, who is a little younger than me, has announced that it will be his last movie. So I thought: if Harrison can do it, then maybe I can.
I do not want me to be categorically eliminating any activity. I can’t play tennis, but I like to believe that maybe one day.
During his interview, Williams mentioned that indiana Jones 5 would also be the last Harrison Ford movie, although the actor who has been in charge of this role has not issued any statement that confirms or denies this information. Therefore, it seems that the composer will say goodbye to the big screen soon.
It is expected that Indiana Jones 5_ premieres on June 30, 2023 . On related issues, Mads Mikkelsen joins this movie. Similarly, Indiana Jones game would be multiplatform.
John Williams has earned a deserved rest. His work is one of the most representative of Hollywood cinema. All the compositions he has created are magnificent. If Indiana Jones 5 will be his last movie, at least he will close his career in a great form.
