While Lucasfilm never greenlit an animated Indiana Jones animated series, Patrick Schoenmaker, the artist for the trading card set, saw an opportunity for a unique passion project.
The Adventures of Indiana Jones runs nearly two minutes in length and took about five years to make. Thankfully, Schoenmaker’s hard work really paid off. The short is awesome and fits perfectly into the franchise. Lucasfilm should pay attention. This needs to be developed further.
Famous archaeologist Dr. Indiana Jones is on a quest of a lifetime, but this time he is fully animated in this passion project by life long fan and artist Patrick Schoenmaker. Over the course of 5 years, he has crafted the opening sequence of what would be the tv series to make all other tv shows redundant: “The Adventures of Indiana Jones”!
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.
