How to watch Indiana Jones movies in order, both chronologically and by release date: In Search of the Lost Ark (198.Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) (19.8.Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) (19.8.Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (200). Set in 1935 and most of it is celebrated in India, Indy joins a boy named Short Round (played by Ke Huy Quan) and a singer (played by Willie Scott) to fight a cult dedicated to child slavery and human sacrifice. For me, Last Crusade is by far the best part of the series. It takes place in 1938 and has the richest history in the franchise with the participation of Sean Connery as Indy's father, Henry.
There have been several setbacks up to this point, including Harrison Ford's unfortunate shoulder injury. The plot of the film is still under wraps, but it is expected to take place in the 60s or 70s and may include the Nazis once again. The timeline of the Indiana Jones movies is the chronological order of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones and the film series. Few people realize that the original Indiana Jones movies weren't released in the right order.
Indiana Jones has been capturing ancient artifacts and our hearts for more than 40 years. The iconic film series directed by Steven Spielberg is known for its exaggerated plot lines, action-packed scenes and suspenseful John Williams' themed music. Of course, Harrison Ford's character's khaki wardrobe, wide-brimmed hat, and mischievous smile are also quite memorable. The Indiana Jones franchise is a collection of films like no other, made up of the original film plus three sequels of films that somehow don't disappoint viewers.
Every archaeological adventure and every victory over the villains serves as a reminder that Indy is, and always will be, the most heroic fictional crusade in the world. This fan-favorite sequel is all about keeping up with the Jones Indiana Jones and their father, Henry Jones Sr. After Indy's first encounter with the evil Nazis, they have returned to find the Holy Grail and kidnapped Henry along the way. Now, it's up to Indy to save his father and the world.
At the start of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, set in 1912 (before the film continues in 1938 for the rest), an old enemy is given a backstory when a young Indiana Jones initially tries to recover a gold cross stolen by a pair of grave robbers. One would think that this television series based on the adventures of a young Indiana Jones would come first chronologically, but the series actually takes place in the 90s, with an elderly Indiana (George Hall) starting each episode recalling an adventure from his youth. Originally released as In Search of the Lost Ark, the first Indiana Jones film was later marketed as Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark. Harrison Ford even appears in one episode (Young Indiana Jones and the Mystery of the Blues) as Indiana Jones.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was the second Indiana Jones movie released, but it's actually the first on the timeline. The Nazis Are Not the Great Enemy of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, released almost two decades after the last Indiana Jones film (and appropriately set in 1957, exactly the same amount of time since The Last Crusade). Perhaps the most important recent news related to the series, however, is that a new film is in development, and it still plans to use Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark begins with Indiana Jones recovering a gold idol from a temple trapped in 1936, with one of the best and most memorable action sequences of all time.
