Creator George Lucas’ Critically Acclaimed
The Adventures Of Young Indiana Jones Comes to
Its Thrilling Conclusion on DVD April 29


More Than 30 Companion Documentaries Supplement Young Indy’s Adventures With Insights Into the Facts Behind His Globetrotting Exploits


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (February 4, 2008) – Excitement and early 20th-century history combine in the action-packed final volume of creator George Lucas’ Emmy® award-winning THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG INDIANA JONES, coming to DVD April 29.

In a compilation “like no other DVD collection ever released” (Dallas Morning News), THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG INDIANA JONES: The Years of Change, provides an up-close look at history with the world’s favorite action hero as a guide.

Presented on 10 jam-packed discs, THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG INDIANA JONES: The Years of Change offers more than 25 hours of entertainment, including seven feature-length episodes and more than 30 entirely new documentaries exploring the people, places and events Indy encounters in his travels – from the creation of the Middle East to the Broadway boom, the birth of jazz and even the early days of Hollywood.

“It’s great to know that Young Indy is being re-discovered on DVD,” Lucas says. “We always hoped the series would show that history isn’t just something old and dusty that you find in libraries. History is all around us, and it’s exciting because it’s always teaching us something about our own world.”

In THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG INDIANA JONES: The Years of Change, Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints, “The Dead Zone”) stars as Indy, alongside such acclaimed actors as Anne Heche (“Men In Trees”), Jane Krakowski (“30 Rock”) and Jeffrey Wright (Casino Royale).

THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG INDIANA JONES: The Years Of Change is released by Lucasfilm Ltd., CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The 10-disc set features a comprehensive assortment of exhaustively researched special features that provide insights into world history.

“Young Indy shows a different side to Indiana Jones and reminds us of the academic roots behind Indy’s affinity for adventure,” said series producer Rick McCallum. “The hero we know as ‘Indiana’ is first and foremost Dr. Jones, a man whose love for history and thirst for knowledge started when he was young, proving that learning about the world can lead to incredible things.”

The acclaimed documentaries were produced over a four-year period by former CBS News producer David Schneider. “It has been an honor to help realize George’s vision for the Young Indy DVDs as an in-depth exploration of history with real-life facts that spark viewers’ curiosity and inspire them to learn even more,” Schneider said. “This set offers more of everything that Indiana Jones fans love: more action, more excitement and more historical information to truly bring the past to life.”

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones DVD collections have received widespread praise from critics. “Vivid and imaginative” (Baltimore Sun) with “grand content” (Los Angeles Times), each of the three volumes features an unprecedented amount of special features that includes interviews with scholars, historians and luminaries from a wide range of disciplines.

A critically acclaimed combination of adventure, romance and history, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones was shot in 35 countries and utilized the talents of the industry’s most distinguished actors, directors and writers, earning 12 Emmy Awards and 27 nominations over the course of its run. In addition, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones was the first television series to use digital production, pioneering processes that would pave the way for Lucas’ own Star Wars prequels.

The Young Indiana Jones films also feature the work of some of the industry’s biggest names in directing and writing. Series directors include Bille August (Les Miserables), Mike Newell (Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire), David Hare (Strapless, screenplays for The Hours and Damage), Terry Jones (Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Life of Brian), Deepa Mehta (Water), Joe Johnston (The Rocketeer, Jurassic Park III), Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell To Earth, Don’t Look Now), and Michael Schultz (Car Wash, TV’s “Everwood”). Writers include Rosemary Anne Sisson (Upstairs, Downstairs), Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) and Jonathan Hensleigh (Die Hard with a Vengeance).

THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG INDIANA JONES complete three-volume collection contains 22 feature-length movies and 94 documentaries, interactive games developed by River Deep, an interactive timeline produced by Terra Incognita Productions and an historical overview by noted author and University of Texas history professor H.W. Brands.

The shipboard battle that ensues is a spectacular display of swords, guns and flying fists.
