The popular show, officially titled the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Show Spectacular!, was one of Hollywood Studios’ original attractions from 1989 (aka Disney-MGM Studios). Although it wasn’t operating on opening day, it joined the list a few months later.

The Original Indiana Jones

When the show debuted in 1989, it starred Kevin Brassard as Indiana Jones and Michelle Waitman as Marion Ravenwood. The two actors from the original stunt show were invited to attend the premiere of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023). Brassard and Waitman met Harrison Ford on the red carpet and posed for photographs. Although Harrison Ford, at 80, still stars as Indiana Jones, Brassard has retired as the adventuring archaeologist and now plays the role of “The Producer” in the Hollywood Studios show.

“To have started this venture 34 years ago and to keep the franchise alive, which is hopefully what we’ve done in Florida, it’s amazing, and we’re so appreciative to Disney for making this huge dream come true,” Brassard told the Hollywood Reporter.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
