This June, the legendary archaeologist will be immortalised as a bronze statue striking his iconic pose with a coiled whip and trademark fedora.
Indiana Jones, known as one of the most-loved movie characters of all time, will be joining the famous ‘Scenes in the Square' trail along with other beloved characters like Harry Potter, Batman and Mary Poppins. The unveiling of this statue coincides with the UK cinema release of 'Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny' on 28th June.
Standing in Leicester Square's lively corner, in Europe's busiest pedestrian area, the statue brings to life the famed scene from the 1981 film "Raiders of the Lost Ark" when Indy swung into action with his whip and fedora for the very first time.
To celebrate Indiana Jones' return, a special screening of the original movie, 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' took place at Vue West End on 31st May. And guess what? Now you can enjoy the entire Indiana Jones collection from anywhere on Disney+!
Adding to the excitement, a mysterious crate labelled 'PROPERTY OF DR. H JONES' has been teasing the statue, reminiscent of the iconic wooden case that held the Ark of the Covenant in the original Indiana Jones movie.
Harrison Ford is bringing back Indiana Jones to the silver screen on 28th June! He is joined by a fantastic cast, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, and many other amazing actors. Together, they will bring the adventure of 'Dial of Destiny' to the big screens.
