Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones, aka Dr. Henry Walton Jones, Jr. is the main character from the 1981 Lucasfilm mega hit, 'Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.' He can also be found in the films 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,' 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,' and 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.' His character has had cameos on 'The Muppet Show,' 'Muppet Babies,' and 'Aladdin: The Series.' In video games he can be found in about 27 different Indiana Jones games, that are on various systems such as the Atari, NES, C64, PC, Macintosh, Amiga, Sega Genesis, SNES, Nintendo 64, Gameboy Color, Xbox, Playstation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS, Wii, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3. In other merchandise he can be found in clothing, books, Disney art, vinylmations, pins, and toys.

He lives in New York City where he is a professor at Marshall College and Barnett College. He has many people he can count on when needed such as Marcus Brody, Sallah, Marion Ravenwood, Willie Scott, Short Round, Henry Jones Sr., Mutt Williams, and Jock Lindsey. His enemies include Mola Ram, Rene Belloq, Chatter Lal, Walter Donovan, Dr. Elsa Schneider, the Nazis, Lao Che, and Arnold Toht.

*FUN FACT* Rumors are running ramped about a 'Indiana Jones' reboot, with Chris Pratt taking over the role as 'Indiana Jones'.

Indiana Jones has brown hair, brown eyes, and a short brown stubbly beard. He wears a white long sleeve shirt, khaki pants, brown boots, a brown leather jacket, and a brown fedora. He also has a brown shoulder bag, brown belt, bullwhip, and a brown holster for his weapon of choice which is a revolver.

He was created by George Lucas. He was mainly played by Harrison Ford, but he also was played by George Hall, Corey Carrier, River Phoenix, and Sean Patrick Flanery. He has also been voiced by David Esch, John Armstrong, and Doug Lee.

Indiana Jones can be found in Disney theme parks around the world. He can be found as a meet and greet character and also in attractions such as Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, and Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull. Since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012 it seems like they will be doing more with this wonderful character in the parks and in the movies.
