Starting Wednesday, May 31, Disney+ will have all four original “Indiana Jones” movies on its platform. You’ll get the exciting original “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the darker journey of “Temple of Doom,” the heartfelt story in “The Last Crusade” and the thrilling return “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” All directed by Steven Spielberg from the mind of George Lucas, it’s another great addition to the Disney+ library.
Where can you stream the ‘Indiana Jones’ movies?
The “Indiana Jones” movies are available exclusively through Disney+. The streaming service is available via an internet connection if you live in Australia, Austria, Canada, the Channel Islands, France, Germany, India, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Italy, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland or the United Kingdom—and the U.S. Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming platform can be accessed from desktop browsers, mobile devices, game consoles and more.
There’s plenty more amazing content to watch on Disney+, especially if you want more Harrison Ford! You can rewatch his adventures as Han Solo with the entirety of the Star Wars saga on the site, plus your favorite Marvel blockbusters like “The Avengers” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” or original series like “Loki” and “Ms. Marvel.” There are also classic episodes of “The Simpsons”, nature documentaries produced by National Geographic and almost a century’s worth of Disney films and TV shows.
What are the ‘Indiana Jones’ movies about?
Few movies have mixed classic Hollywood aesthetics with intense action thrills as perfectly as the “Indiana Jones” movies.
The world first met Dr. Jones in 1981 with “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” with our hero teaming up with the spunky Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) and the friendly Sallah (John Rhys-Davies) in 1936 to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis do. Three years later, Indy returned in “Temple of Doom” to battle an evil cult with the help of the feisty Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) and the excitable Short Round (Oscar-winner Ke Huy Quan). Spielberg closed out the original trilogy in 1989 with “The Last Crusade,” with Jones and his single-minded dad (Oscar-winner Sean Connery) battling the Nazis again to find the Holy Grail. 19 years later, the gang returned for “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” which saw Indy battling Soviet KGB agent Irina Spalko (Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett) in 1957 while traveling with the gruff Mutt (Shia LaBeouf).
The “Indiana Jones” movies are hailed as some of the most iconic blockbusters in movie history, establishing Indy (and Ford) as a pop culture icon and inspiring countless young movie lovers to start their own directing careers with Indy fan films. In the current age of blockbusters overloaded with CGI, it’s refreshing to see the practical effects and gritty action of the runway fight in “Raiders” and the tank chase in “Last Crusade.” Even the opening scene of “Raiders” was turned into a stunt show at Hollywood Studios in Disney World. It’ll certainly be interesting to see the classic Indy films and compare them with the upcoming “Dial of Destiny” (directed by James Mangold instead of Spielberg this time).
