    Harrison Ford and his Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom costar Ke Huy Quan reunite after 38 years | Daily Mail Online

    Harrison Ford and his former costar Ke Huy Quan were grinning ear-to-ear on Saturday when they reunited for the first time in 38 years.

    The 80-year-old Hollywood icon and the 51-year-old Goonies star previously shared the screen in 1984’s Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, with Ford playing the title character and Quan playing his resourceful sidekick Short Round.

    Quan, who returned to prominence following his acclaimed role in Everything Everywhere All At Once, joined Ford as they promoted their new projects in Anaheim, California.

    Quan shared two sweet photos of the actors catching up, both showing him wrapping his arms around the older screen star.

    The two even matched each other with their jeans and gray blazers. 

    ‘”I love you, Indy,”‘ Quan wrote in his caption, referencing a pivotal moment from Temple Of Doom.

    ‘Indiana Jones and Short Round reunited after 38 years,’ he added.

    Ford was at D23 to promote his upcoming fifth Indiana Jones film, which sees Logan’s James Mangold taking over for Spielberg in the director’s chair.

    The actor confirmed at the presentation that this would be his final outing as Indiana Jones.

    ‘This is it! I will not fall down for you again,’ he told the crowd.

    The actor, who is sometimes cool toward his most popular work, including the Star Wars series, was visibly emotional as he spoke about the upcoming movie after a teaser trailer was played.

    ‘Indiana Jones movies are about mystery and adventure, but they’re also about heart, and I’m really, really happy that we have a really human story to tell, as well as a movie that will kick your a**,’ he said.

    Temple Of Doom went on to become a global hit, though some viewers found the film too dark and violent, and it was pivotal in the creation of the PG-13 rating for films that were too mature for children but didn’t qualify for an R rating.

    Despite its financial and critical success, others criticized the film for what they found to be racist depictions of Indian and Chinese cultures.

    After appearing in Steven Spielberg’s film, Quan was on screen the following year in the cult film The Goonies, which was based on a story by Spielberg and was directed by Richard Donner.

    But despite playing prominent parts in two cultural major films, opportunities for the Vietnamese-born actor began to dry up in the late 1980s and 1990s.

    After giving up on an acting career in the late 1990s, he enrolled in the University of Southern California’s film program to explore new opportunities.

    He worked as a fight choreographer on 2000’s X-Men, and he served as acclaimed Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai’s assistant director on his science fiction romance 2046.

    After the success of Crazy Rich Asians, Quan thought Hollywood was more accepting of Asian actors and began actively pursing projects again.

    He starred in last year’s surprise indie hit Everything Everywhere All At Once, which also earned widespread praise for its star Michelle Yeoh.

    The multitalented actor was on hand on Saturday at D23 to promote the upcoming second season of Loki, which he will be appearing in with Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
