Indiana Jones on Disney+

Lucasfilm has announced all four Indiana Jones movies will be available on Disney+ ahead of the release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in cinemas. Not only that, but The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, seemingly lost to the sands of time, will be too.

Back in the early nineties, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles aired on ABC with Harrison Ford making a cameo as the titular adventurer and is notable for featuring an early appearance of Elizabeth Hurley.

I vividly remember watching the pioneering award-winning live-action series on Sky One in the UK and listening to the Varèse Sarabande soundtracks (on a Panasonic mini system) as I toiled away on undergraduate scripts with Nick Smith, wrote essays and read the latest issue of The Lucasfilm Fan Club magazine (rebranded as Star Wars Insider).

Production techniques developed for The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles would later be utilised on the Star Wars prequels and form the genesis of StageCraft used in The Mandalorian on Disney+.

Will you be watching Indiana Jones on Disney+? Let me know in the comments below.
