Harrison Ford experienced a blast from his “Indiana Jones” past during this weekend’s Disney D23 Expo.
Ford, 80, made a surprise appearance at the event to discuss the long-awaited “Raiders of the Last Ark” sequel, and wound up reuniting with Key Huy Quan, who was just 12 when he played Indy’s sidekick Short Round in 1984’s “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”.
Quan, now 51, took to Instagram to share a photo of the former co-stars embracing.
“‘I love you, Indy,’” Quan captioned the photo, referencing his character’s classic line of dialogue.
“Indiana Jones and Short Round reunited after 38 years,” he added.
Social media users couldn’t help but share their happiness at this nostalgia-tinged reunion.
