A new bridging segment to add some closure to the first half of the story was shot in Tunisia on August 11, 1997 during production of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). As all the actors had signed a long term contract to include potential re-shoots, Joseph Bennett and Vic Tablian were available to reprise the roles of T.E. Lawrence and Demetrios. Doubles were substituted for Corey Carrier, Margaret Tyzack and Tony Robinson. The double for Carrier gets to speak a line in his own voice. See more »


In the "adventure map" scene Morocco is divided between French and Spanish protectorates. This partition took place in 1912, 4 years after the time of the story. See more »


Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: [narrating] I was born July first, 1899. I don't remember a whole lot about it, but I guess my parents were pretty pleased to see me. They decided to name me after my father. So, I'm Henry Walton Jones, Junior. I grew up in Princeton, New Jersey at an exciting time, the very beginning of the twentieth century. I started to walk at a pretty early age. Eveyone in the house got pretty excited about it

Mummies, slaves and lemon juice
5 September 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The start of the first episode of the TV movie series The Young Indiana Jones doesn't bode well for the remainder of the film. A typical voice-over narrates the story of the young Indana coming into being. It all looks like we are are in for a typical cliché-ridden American child adventure.

Indy is a spoiled, know-it-better brat whose smart-ass mannerisms are rather annoying. His first trip is to Egypt, where a fresh mummy has been discovered, A short and boring whodunnit involving the mummy and a crook ensues.

Next, the Jones family heads over to Morocco where Indiana and his new friend Omar fall prey to a kidnap/slave trade gang. This part of the movie is quite good. What's more, Indiana starts to show more character here; he's becoming sympathetic. Ashley Walters is strong as the slave boy Omar; the careless, happy-go-lucky attitude of Indiana juxtaposes well next to the modest and serious Omar.

I was amazed by the sometimes vivid depiction of violence and death in what I suppose must be a movie for youngsters. However, it gave the film a realistic touch, which also can be said of the uncompromising way local culture is portrayed.

The supporting cast was so-so. There was not much life in father and mother Jones and the other actors were quite forgettable.

All in all, this is a passable adventure story with some exciting scenes. Nothing less, nothing more.
