Future tense

The Lawless site says “the historical future is mainly used to emphasize events sandwiched between passages in the present or passé simple”. Why then is the final paragraph in this excerpt in future tense?

The final paragraph looks at the life of Marceau from the point of his birth, before his carreer started.

Bonjour Allison,

Chris is correct! Take a look at his answer here too: why is the last paragraph in the future tense?

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
