Harrison Ford made his first appearance as Indiana Jones in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, which sees the daring adventurer going after the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis can get their hands on it. It was followed by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom four years later. The film was conceived as a prequel since story writer and executive producer George Lucas wanted to avoid having Jones butt heads with Nazis again. Instead, his antagonist turns out to be a murderous priest and his legion of followers. While a big commercial success, the film was criticized for its violence and darkness at the time of release. 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade went for a lighter tone by pairing Ford with Sean Connery, playing Indy’s difficult father despite the actors’ slim age difference of only 12 years. It took Indiana Jones almost twenty years to return to the big screen in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008 — a film that strongly polarized critics and fans, with many regarding it as a low point in the franchise’s history.

Indy’s Sprawling Legacy

1993 saw the release of the series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles starring Corey Carrier and Sean Patrick Flannery as younger versions of the character. It ran for two seasons on ABC and was later reissued as a series of TV movies under the title The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones.

Despite initial rumors to the contrary, Ford has recently confirmed that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be his final appearance as Indy and most likely the last appearance of the character in a theatrical film. A TV series, however, is in the works for Disney+. Fans have been vocal about wanting to see a spinoff show featuring Temple of Doom co-star Ke Huy Quan’s character Short Round. The actor has expressed his desire to return to the role, but no such project has been officially announced.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny opens in theaters on June 30.
