All four Indiana Jones movies and The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones will start streaming on Disney+ later this month.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy announced today at Disney’s Upfronts presentation that the Indiana Jones movies will start streaming on Disney+ on May 31st. Not only that, but fans will also be able to stream The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones TV series as well.
Here’s a rundown of what will be hitting the streaming service:
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
In this first installment of the series, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture and won four, archeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is tasked by Army Intelligence to track down an invaluable staff that is the key to locating the Ark of the Covenant, which is being sought by the Nazis.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
After fleeing a nightclub shooting and being dropped out of an abandoned plane, Professor Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), singer Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) and 12-year-old Short Round (Ke Huy Quan) find themselves in a starving Indian village who blame their plight on the loss of three mystical stones that have always brought the village prosperity. Jones vows to return the stolen rocks — which brings him and his unlikely cohorts face-to-face with a deadly cult.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
There’s nothing more exciting than trying to keep up with the Joneses in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” Indy’s Nazi enemies are back and have kidnapped his father, Professor Henry Jones, Sr. (Sean Connery), in their effort to locate the sacred Holy Grail. Following a trail from America to Venice to the deserts of the Middle East, it’s up to Indy (Harrison Ford) to save his father, save the Grail and save the day in this non-stop, action-packed adventure the whole family will treasure.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.
The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones
At the dawn of the 20th century, Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) discovered the world. From globetrotting family expeditions as a 9-year-old to the battlefields of World War I as a teenager, Indy’s experiences shaped the heroic, whip-cracking archaeologist he would become. At every turn, Indy encounters history in the making, meeting true-life activists, soldiers, writers, artists, and thinkers who helped influence the world we live in today.
The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones is the one part of the franchise that I’ve never had the opportunity to check out, so I’ll be excited to give it a spin once it starts streaming on Disney+. It was also announced that Disney+ subscribers in the U.S. will get special access to Indiana Jones merchandise on Shop Disney from May 31st to June 8th. You’d be able to purchase this merch before the general public.
This all serves as a big lead-up to the release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. The film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18th before hitting theaters on June 30th. I can’t wait.
