Recently, these loyal fans’ patience has paid off, as filming is now underway for the as-yet-untitled Indiana Jones 5. Last week, we shared a first look at the U.K. set for the James Mangold-directed film — Spielberg will serve as executive producer — and now, Hollywood icon Harrison Ford has been spotted on set for the first time.

Fan site IJ Adventure Outpost shared the following Twitter post, including a photo of 78-year-old Ford as Henry Jones, Jr. for the fifth time:

It appears that Ford is standing with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, who is serving as producer on the fifth Indiana Jones movie.

Kennedy, of course, also worked with Ford in some capacity on the Star Wars sequel trilogy when he reprised his original trilogy role as Millennium Falcon pilot Han Solo alongside both Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and the late Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia Organa).

Although the plot of Indy 5 is being kept under wraps, Ford is set to star two other Star Wars veterans, Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Solo: A Star Wars Story).

Other cast members include Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Shaunette Renée Wilson (The Resident), and Marvel actor Thomas Kretschmann (Avengers: Age of Ultron).
