*FUN FACT* Rumors are running
a 'Indiana Jones' reboot, with Chris Pratt taking over the role as
Indiana Jones has brown hair, brown eyes, and a
short brown stubbly beard. He wears a white long sleeve shirt, khaki
pants, brown boots, a brown leather jacket, and a brown fedora. He
also has a brown shoulder bag, brown belt, bullwhip, and a brown
holster for his weapon of choice which is a revolver.
He was created by George Lucas. He was mainly
played by Harrison Ford, but he also was played by George Hall,
Corey Carrier, River Phoenix, and Sean Patrick Flanery. He has also
been voiced by David Esch, John Armstrong, and Doug Lee.
Indiana Jones can be found in Disney theme parks
around the world. He can be found as a meet and greet character and
also in attractions such as Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the
Forbidden Eye, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, and Indiana
Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull. Since Disney bought
Lucasfilm in 2012 it seems like they will be doing more with this
wonderful character in the parks and in the movies.
