Ke Huy Quan's heartwarming description of the moment he reunited with Harrison Ford after 38 years made Indiana Jones fans shed some manly tears.

The beloved star of Everything Everywhere All at Once Ke Huy Quan revealed details behind his touching reunion with Harrison Ford and a photo of this emotional moment that blew up the Indiana Jones fan accounts.

The stars of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom reunited at D23 Expo 38 years after the movie's premiere. The actors never met after the Temple of Doom release, and Quan said he was worried that Harrison Ford would not recognize him. After all, he was only 13 when he played Short Round in the second movie of the Indiana Jones franchise.

In an interview with The New York Times' Kyle Buchanan Ke Huy Quan describes how excited he was when he heard that Harrison Ford was at the same event promoting the upcoming fifth and final Indiana Jones movie that is scheduled to be released on June 30, 2023. Immediately after finding this out, Quan went out to meet Ford, his heart racing, still not sure Ford wouldn't take him for some crazy fan.

But the reaction of Harrison Ford when he caught a glimpse of Ke Huy Quan made all Indiana Jones fans choke back tears of joy. Ford pointed at Quan and said, "Are you Short Round?" Oh my God, what a joyful moment! Ke Huy Quan described how he immediately felt himself become a little kid and return to 1984 when Indiana Jones and Short Round met for the last time. Didn't we all? Even more so after Quan's answer which was a simple "Yes, Indy." After this soul-stirring exchange, the actors shared a big hug and made viral photos we all enjoyed.

"As I get closer, he turns and points his finger at me, and he has that classic, famous, grumpy Harrison Ford look," Quan said. "I go, 'Oh my gosh, he probably thinks I'm a fan and he's gonna tell me to not come near him.' But he looks and points at me and says, 'Are you Short Round?' Immediately, I was transported back to 1984, when I was a little kid, and I said, 'Yes, Indy.' And he said, 'Come here,' and gave me a big hug."

This description was genuinely heartwarming for millions of Indiana Jones fans. The only downside of the story is that unless there are reshoots, this reunion confirms that Short Round will not be part of Indiana Jones 5, the appearance many fans had dreamt about.

However, the two actors might still be given a chance to work together on the set of some future Marvel project. They have both become part of the Marvel Universe since Quan joined the cast of Loki 's season 2 and Ford took on the role of General Thaddeus Ross in Captain America: New World Order.
