In accordance with the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Lucasfilm and ACME Archives hired a Dutch artist and animator, Patrick Schoenmaker to create an art print of Dr. Jones as an animated character. That was the end of their cooperation, however, Schoenmaker was very enthusiastic about Indiana Jones as an animated movie and has been working on it since that day.
As you might already know, Lucasfilm and Disney already plans to releases the fifth Indiana Jones movie in 2019. However, Schoenmaker’s unofficial animated movie The Adventures of Indiana Jones might come way before that one.
Schoenmaker recently discussed his invemade the following statement on his personal web site in relation to the subject:
“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.”
There is no certain information about the plotline and the length of the movie. Follow us on social media and let us keep you updated!
