Are you a fan of Indiana Jones? Have you ever wanted to see an animated feature film featuring the archaeologist/professor/explorer? Well, on September 29, 2016, your dreams may come true!
From Screenrant, we learn that an animated fan-made film featuring the character, Indiana Jones, will be debuting soon. Created by animator Patrick Schoenmaker, the idea originated when Patrick was commissioned to create an art print for the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008. Having completed that, he decided to work on his own personal Indiana Jones project which would become The Adventures of Indiana Jones. In his own words:
“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.”
Other than that, we don’t have any information about the plot, voice cast, run-time, or anything else of the film. So if you wanna find out, you’ll just have to go check out the film when it’s released online on September 29. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until July 19, 2019 for Indiana Jones 5!
