Fun Find Friday

August 9, 2013

Location: Adventureland, Disneyland

It hasn't been too long since Disney acquired Lucasfilm. Along with the Star Wars saga, most people tend to overlook the other Lucasfilm legacy that also came with the purchase: Indiana Jones! Disneyland has had an attraction based around Indiana Jones, Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye, since 1995.

Much like Disney, Lucasfilm has always done a great job of referencing other films in its canon in subtle ways. This is also true for the attraction temple of the Forbidden Eye. While passing through all the traps and gizmos of the line you will enter a room featuring a film strip explaining the storyline behind the attraction and how to buckle your seatbelts. Just after exiting this room you will see a small room with few crates out front. Take a look at the crate on the far left to find the following image:

Club Obi-Wan

The instructions are to deliver this to Club Obi Wan. While you may initially think this is a obvious reference to Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars saga, you'd be partially right. In actuality, the name of the club at the start of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was called Club Obi Wan, which in turn referenced the famous Jedi. So the picture above is in fact a reference to a movie of a reference to another movie! Confused? Good!
