George Lucas
about the Indiana Jones character's life growing up. During the concept stages of ''Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'', Lucas and director Steven Spielberg decided to reveal some of this backstory in the film's opening scenes. For these scenes, Lucas chose River Phoenix to portray the character, as Harrison Ford believed that Phoenix most resembled Ford as a young man Phoenix had appeared as the son of Ford's character in ''The Mosquito Coast (film), The Mosquito Coast''. This decision to reveal an adventure of a young Indiana led Lucas and crew to the idea of creating the series.


Writing

Lucas wrote an extensive time-line detailing the life of Indiana Jones, assembling the elements for about 70 episodes, starting in 1905 and leading all the way up to the feature films. Each outline included the place, date and the historical persons Indy would meet in that episode, and would then be turned over to one of the series writers. When the series came to an end about 31 of the 70 stories had been filmed. Had the series been renewed for a third season, Young Indy would have been introduced to younger versions of characters from ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'': Abner Ravenwood ("Jerusalem, June 1909") and René Belloq ("Honduras, December 1920"). Other episodes would have filled in the blanks between existing ones ("Le Havre, June 1916", "Berlin, Late August, 1916"), and there would even have been some adventures starring a five-year-old Indy (including "Princeton, May 1905"). During production of the series, Lucas became interested by the crystal skulls. He originally called for an episode which would have been part of the third season involving Jones and his friend Belloq searching for one of the skulls. The episode was never produced, and the idea ultimately evolved into the 2008 feature film ''Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull''.


Casting

A number of actors connected to the Indiana Jones films and/or George Lucas's ''Star Wars'' franchise made guest appearances. Harrison Ford appeared as a middle-aged Indy (age 50) in the episode "Young Indiana Jones and the Mystery of the Blues", which aired in March 1993. Paul Freeman, who played Rene Belloq in ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'', portrayed Frederick Selous in a couple of episodes, while Roshan Seth, who played Chattar Lal in ''Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'', played a North African sheikh in "Morocco, 1917" (later re-edited into "Tales of Innocence"). The late William Hootkins (Major Eaton from ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'' and Porkins from ''Star Wars'') played Russian ballet producer Sergei Diaghilev and Wolf Kahler (Colonel Dietrich in ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'') played a German diplomat in "Barcelona, May 1917". In the episode ''Attack of the Hawkmen,'' ''Star Wars'' veteran Anthony Daniels played François, a French Intelligence scientist (in the mode of James Bond's "Q") who gives Indy a special suitcase filled with gadgets for a special mission in Germany. Clint Eastwood was approached to play the elder brother of Indiana Jones, but he turned it down despite a $10 million offer.


Filming

A variety of filmmakers wrote or directed many episodes of the series, including Frank Darabont, Nicolas Roeg, Mike Newell (director), Mike Newell, Deepa Mehta, Joe Johnston, Jonathan Hensleigh,

, Simon Wincer, Carrie Fisher, Dick Maas and Vic Armstrong. Lucas was given a "Story By" credit in many episodes, along with his input as a creative consultant. The series was unusual in that it was shot on location around the world. Partly to offset the cost of this, the series was shot on 16mm film, rather than 35mm movie film, 35. The series was designed so that each pair of episodes could either be broadcast separately, or as a 2-hour film-length episode. Each episode cost about $1.5 million and the filming with Young Indy usually took around 3 weeks. The first production filming alternated between "Sean" and "Corey" episodes. The segments with old Indy were referred to as "bookends." Filming a pair of them typically took a day and most were shot at Carolco Studios in Wilmington, North Carolina and on location in Wilmington. The show also featured footage from other films spliced into several episodes. The series was shot in three stages. The first production occurred from 1991 to 1992, and consisted of sixteen episodes; five with younger Indy, ten with older Indy, and one with both—for a total of seventeen television hours. The second production occurred from 1992 to 1993 and consisted of twelve episodes; one with younger Indy and eleven with older Indy, for a total of fifteen television hours. The third and final production occurred from 1994 to 1995, and consisted of four made-for-television movies, for a total of eight television hours. In 1996, additional filming was done in order to re-edit the entire series into twenty-two feature films.


Soundtrack

The series' main theme was composed by Laurence Rosenthal, who wrote much of the music for the series. Joel McNeely also wrote music for many episodes; he received an Emmy in 1993 for the Episode "Scandal of 1920". French composer Frédéric Talgorn composed some music for the episode set in World War I France ("The Somme, July 1916/Germany, August 1916"). Music for "Transylvania, September 1918" was composed by Curt Sobel.

in the United States in March 1992. The pilot, the feature-length ''Young Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Jackal'', was later re-edited as two separate episodes, "Egypt, May 1908" and "Mexico, March 1916." Eleven further hour-long episodes were aired in 1992 (seven in the first season, four were part of the second season) - during the second season, it was placed as the lead-in to ''Monday Night Football'', just as fellow Paramount series ''MacGyver (1985 TV series), MacGyver'' had done for the previous six years. Only 16 of the remaining 20 episodes were aired in 1993 when ABC canceled the show. Television networks preceding ABC Family, The Family Channel later produced four two-hour TV movies that were broadcast from 1994 to 1996. Though Lucas intended to produce episodes leading up to a 24-year-old Jones, the series was cancelled with the character at age 21.


Home media

The revised and updated edition of the book ''George Lucas: The Creative Impulse'', by Charles Champlin, explains how ''The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles'' series would be re-edited into the new structure of twenty-two ''Chapter'' TV films, for the 1999 VHS release. New footage was shot in 1996 to be incorporated with the newly re-edited and re-titled "chapters" to better help it chronologically and provide smooth transitions. The newly shot ''Tangiers, 1908'' was joined with ''Egypt, 1908'' from the ''Curse of the Jackal'' to form ''My First Adventure'', and ''Morocco, 1917'' was joined with ''Northern Italy, 1918'' (now re-dated as ''1917'') to form ''Tales of Innocence''. Also included in the home video release were four unaired episodes made for the ABC network: ''Florence, May 1908''; ''Prague, 1917''; ''Transylvania, 1918''; and ''Palestine, 1917''. The series itself was also re-titled as ''The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones''. The 93-year-old Indy bookends for the original series were removed, as well as Sean Patrick Flanery's bookend for "Travels With Father"; however, the Harrison Ford bookend, set in 1950, from "Mystery of The Blues" was not cut.


VHS and Laserdisc

The series received its first home video release on April 21, 1993, when a Laserdisc box set was released in Japan containing fifteen of the earlier episodes and a short documentary on the making of the series. The discs were formatted in NTSC and presented with English audio in Dolby surround with Japanese subtitles. In 1994, eight NTSC format VHS tapes with a total of fifteen episodes from the first two seasons were released in Japan. On October 26, 1999, half of the series was released on VHS in the United States for $14.99 each, along with a box set of the feature films. The series was labeled as Chapters 1–22, while the feature films were labeled as Chapters 23–25. In an effort to promote the series, the episode "Treasure of the Peacock's Eye" was included with the purchase of the movie trilogy box set in the US. The episode was chosen for the fact that its plot continues into the opening of ''Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'', which was labeled as the first film chronologically in the film trilogy. In other countries different chapters were included, for example in the UK ''The Phantom Train of Doom'' was included. The twelve VHS releases were released worldwide over the course of 2000, including the UK, Netherlands, Hungary, Germany, Mexico, France and Japan. The UK, German, French, Hungarian and Netherlands tapes were in PAL format, while the tapes released in the rest of the countries were in NTSC format.


DVD

In 2002, series producer Rick McCallum confirmed in an interview with Variety (magazine), Variety that DVDs of the series were in development, but would not be released for "about three or four years". At the October 2005 press conference for the ''Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith'' DVD, McCallum explained that he expected the release to consist of 22 DVDs, which would include around 100 documentaries which would explore the real-life historical aspects that are fictionalized in the show. For the DVDs, Lucasfilm upgraded the picture quality of the original 16 mm prints and remastered the soundtracks. This, along with efforts to get best quality masters and bonus materials on the sets, delayed the release. It was ultimately decided that the release would tie into the release of the fourth Indiana Jones feature film. Two variations of Volume 1 were released by CBS Home Entertainment, CBS DVD, one simply as "Volume One", and the other as "Volume One — The Early Years" in order to match the subtitle of Volume 2. History (U.S. TV channel), The History Channel acquired television rights to all 94 of the DVD historical documentaries. The airing of the documentaries was meant to bring in ratings for the History Channel and serve as marketing for the DVD release and the theatrical release of ''Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull''. The History Channel and History International began airing the series every Saturday morning at 7AM/6C on The History Channel, and every Sunday morning at 8AM ET/PT on History International. A new division of History.com was created devoted to the show. As Paramount and Lucasfilm had already reserved IndianaJones.com solely for news and updates related to ''Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'', StarWars.com temporarily served as the official site for the DVDs—providing regular updates, insider looks and promotions related to them. However, Lucasfilm and Paramount soon set up an official website proper for the series—YoungIndy.com. Paramount released a press kit for the media promoting the DVDs, which consists of a .pdf file and several videos with interviews with Lucas and McCallum, and footage from the DVDs.The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Vol. 1 12 Discs Video Clips - MovieWeb
A trailer for the DVDs was also published on YoungIndy.com, with a shorter version being shown on The History Channel and History International. Lucas and McCallum hope that the DVDs will be helpful to schools, as they believe the series is a good way to aid in teaching history. Lucas explained that the series' DVD release will be shopped as "films for a modern day high school history class." He believes the series is a good way to teach high school students 20th-century history. The plan was always to tie the DVD release of the series to the theatrical release of the fourth ''Indiana Jones'' feature film, ''Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'', which was released on May 22, 2008. Companion historical documentaries Ninety-four historical documentaries were created over a nearly five-year period by Lucasfilm's documentary crew for the DVD release of the series. Each documentary covers a historical topic connected to the chapter to which it is associated. The television broadcast rights for these documentaries was secured by the History (U.S. TV channel), History Channel.
