A Glorious Animated ‘Indiana Jones’ Fan Film Is Coming

edit

Five years ago, artist Patrick Schoenmaker was commissioned to do an art print of an animation-style Indiana Jones for ACME Archives, which inspired him to begin work on an Indiana Jones animated movie.

Indiana Jones must have been my first true movie hero ever since I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark on a VCR way back when. Yes, some other heroes came and went, but Indy always held a special place. After Crystal Skull was released, my love for the character was once again fully ignited and with no new movies on the horizon back then, I decided to set up an Indiana Jones project of my own to keep the fire burning a little bit longer. So, that was back in 2011 and “a little bit longer” turned into 5 years of hard work. The end of the project is finally in sight.

It’s taken a lot of hard work, but The Adventures Of Indiana Jones will finally be released on September 29th. Given how good the art is, I think it’ll be something fans will love—but we’ll have to see how Disney/Lucasfilm responds to it. Check out some of the art below.
