Animated Indy?!

04.03.2008

There was the big announcement earlier this year that Lucasfilm and Warner Bros. would be releasing the STAR WARS cartoon THE CLONE WARS in theaters this summer. But for my money, I'd rather see the animated adventures of INDIANA JONES. And is it possible that's on the horizon? Check out this new pic:

Sadly it's not a still from a new INDIANA JONES cartoon but instead limited edition lithograph that's available on the newly launched Indiana Jones Shop. Says the shop: This 13"x19" fine art giclee on paper, limited to just 245 pieces, depicts the tooned-up Indy and Marion staving off the darkness in Raiders of the Lost Ark's Well of Souls...Each print is hand numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The piece was drawn by Patrick Schoenmaker who has created some other fantastic INDY artwork:

So I guess this begs the question, why not make "The Animated Adventures of Indiana Jones?" Roll with Schoemaker's designs and make an entire series out of it. I know I'd be there. What are you thoughts? Is "Animated Indy" gold?

Seriously people.

Do people not read the articles and just look at the pretty pictures?

THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY GOING TO BE A SERIES.

You couldn't find a bigger Indy fan than this guy right here...but I think that's an awful idea. Star Wars lends itself to this pretty easily, Indiana Jones does not. For one thing Indy is Harrison Ford...I do not want to see a cheap imitator's voicework spouting off cheesy one liners. For once can't they just leave some things sacred?

Johnny Quest

That last pic of Henry Sr. reminds me of old school Hanna Barbara "Johnny Quest" for some crazy reason. But yeah, again..I really want this to happen.

An animated Indy would be cool, but a different style would suit it better. These images remind me of Disney's "Atlantis", but I'd rather see Indy in a "Batman: TAS" style. He looks just a tad frail with this style for some reason.

NO it's just you

drexxell, the guy who animated "Dragon's Lair" passed away. He pressed the wrong button and fell into a pit filled with sharp sticks.

I'd watch it - I have to say I'd take it over the animated star wars offerings already delivered, which were mildly underwhelming.

If Lucas is involved, I'm sure this will happen. Just tell him that he can sell regular action figures, AND action figures that look like the cartoon versions. That's two times action figures. He can't resist - it's why

Ok, is it just me or did they hire the exact same animator who did the "Dragon's Lair" video game?

Nonetheless, looks cool...I'd watch it.

WTF

Well it's a better idea than the repeated SW spin offs. I don't mind seeing some Indy animation but there is also no reason to stop the franchise just cos good old Ford is a bit old. Very silly.

Hell yeah!! A good way to reintroduce Indy to the younger generation, I really like it. One question though, if they actually did it would Ford do the voiceover?
