The Making ofEpisode GuideFilm Trivia
 

A critically acclaimed combination of adventure, romance and history, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones was shot in 35 countries and utilized the talents of the industry's most distinguished actors, directors and writers, earning 11 Emmy Awards and 26 nominations over the course of its production. In addition, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones was the first television series to use digital production, pioneering processes that would pave the way for Lucas' own Star Wars prequels.

"Young Indiana Jones was one of the most ambitious and complex projects that had ever been attempted for television, and the result was an amazing series that showed a completely different side to Indy," said series producer Rick McCallum, who also produced the three Star Wars prequels and the Special Editions of the original Star Wars Trilogy. "Over the years, the fan support for Young Indiana Jones has swelled, and I'm asked about it everywhere I go. So, I'm really happy that people who grew up with it can at last have it for themselves, and that a new generation will be able to discover the brilliant acting, directing, writing and storytelling that has always been the hallmark of an extraordinary venture."

The feature-length episodes star Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints, The Dead Zone) as teenaged Indy and Corey Carrier (Nixon) as 9-year-old Indy. The extraordinary cast of guest stars includes Christopher Lee, Vanessa Redgrave, Max von Sydow, Anne Heche, Lukas Haas, Elizabeth Hurley, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Craig.

During its network-television run, critics described the series as intelligent, daring, well written, irreverent, and unprecedented in scope and production values.

The Hollywood Reporter called the series "exciting, fun, adventurous, brilliantly made and with a story that's simply charming." Bill Moyers said, "These exciting tales are the way to a youngster's imagination -- and his grandfather's, too. History's never been told more vividly or more engagingly for the young and old alike. May Young Indy be my grandson's companion far into the 21st Century."

The Young Indiana Jones films also feature the work of some of the industry's biggest names in directing and writing. Directors include Bille August (Les Miserables), Mike Newell (Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire), David Hare (Strapless, screenplays for The Hours and Damage), Terry Jones (Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Life of Brian), Deepa Mehta (Water), Joe Johnston (The Rocketeer, Jurassic Park III), Nicholas Roeg (The Man Who Fell To Earth, Don't Look Now), and Michael Schultz (Car Wash, TV's Everwood). Writers include Rosemary Anne Sisson (Upstairs, Downstairs), Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) and Jonathan Hensleigh (Die Hard with a Vengeance).
