“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny”, the final chapter in the epic Indiana Jones saga, is now available for streaming.

The movie joins the entire collection of Indiana Jones movies on Disney+, providing fans old and new with a complete, action-packed journey.

This latest addition, marking a four-decade journey for Harrison Ford as Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones Jr., features the talents of Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen.

After its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France on May 18 and its subsequent theatrical release on June 30, ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ has finally made its way to Disney Plus, joining the complete saga of Indiana Jones films available for streaming.

While Paramount Plus was previously the go-to service for these films, Disney+ has now become the new home for the entire series.

Even for those who were in theaters back in 1981 experiencing the early escapades of Dr. Jones, revisiting the series is incredibly rewarding. The first four films, directed by Steven Spielberg, were the result of his collaboration with George Lucas in conceptualizing Jones and his thrilling adventures.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Ford first played Jones, a professor of archaeology, with “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

“Raiders of the Lost Ark” is set in 1936, and introduces Jones as a globetrotting archaeologist recruited by the U.S. Army to find the lost Ark of the Covenant. But the Nazis are already hunting for the Ark, believing it will make Adolf Hitler’s army invincible. Jones is joined on his adventure by Marion Ravenwood played by Karen Allen.

“Raiders of the Lost Ark” was nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture and won four. It was the highest-grossing film of 1981. 

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Ford’s return as Jones came in 1984 with “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.” Many fans are unaware that the “Temple of Doom” is actually a prequel to “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. 

The story of “Temple of Doom” happens a year earlier in 1935. The film opens with Jones fleeing from Shanghai after a local crime boss attempts to kill him at a nightclub.

He flees with singer Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) and 12-year-old Short Round (Ke Huy Quan). After their escape, the trio finds themselves in a starving Indian village who blame their plight on the loss of three mystical stones. Jones promises to recover the stones and must face a deadly cult led by high priest Mola Ram. 

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Jones gets drawn into a search for the Holy Grail by learning that his father, Dr. Henry Jones, has gone missing while searching for the artifact.

“Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” is as much about family as it is adventure. 

The Joneses have a tumultuous history with the grail and each other. Sean Connery plays Professor Henry Jones. John Rhys-Davies returns as Sallah.

The late River Phoenix plays a younger Indiana Jones in part of the film, which provides a backstory to the Joneses’ yearslong pursuit of the grail.  

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Soviet agents kidnap Jones and his partner Mac to infiltrate “Hanger 51,” a classified U.S. Air Force facility. The Soviets are plotting to uncover the whereabouts of the Crystal Skulls and a mysterious city in Peru.

The film starred Cate Blanchett, Shia LaBeouf and marked the return of Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood. Allen had not appeared in an Indy film since ‘Raiders’ in 1981.

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones

If the four movies leave you wanting more, you can also watch the brief TV series that follows the young Indiana Jones chronicles. Jones is played by Sean Patrick Flanery.
