young indiana jones chroniclesI told you back in May that The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones might be out on DVD before Christmas -- and it will be.

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones: Volume One will hit stores on October 23 and will include seven feature-length episodes which follow a young Indiana Jones as he encounters various historical figures and important events from the past. The 12-disc set will also include a whopping thirty-eight documentaries corresponding with the episodes, and interviews with such people as Martin Scorsese, Colin Powell, Deepak Chopra and James Earl Jones. Two more volumes will follow on December 18 and Spring 2008, respectively.

The original series -- known as The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles when it aired on television in the early '90s -- was a huge undertaking, utilizing digital production for the first time on television and filming in thirty-five different countries. The series featured Sean Patrick Flanery as teenage Indy and Corey Carrier as the younger Indy. Guest stars throughout the series' forty-four episode run included Daniel Craig, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Max Von Sydow, Christopher Lee, and Anne Heche.

In the VHS and laser disc releases

they combined footage from different episodes to make a bunch of movies they also shot some new scenes and got rid of the really old indiana jones that was in the beginning and end of every episode

Is that what they put on these DVD's or is the actual real episodes

You know, I would love to get this series on DVD, but I refuse to pay for seven episodes (that could fit easily on two discs) and 10 discs of extras that I would watch once or never at all. I applaud Lucas and company for trying to give the fans something interesting, but face it, the set is going to be WAY too expensive...

That is excellent news, thank you for the heads up.

I LOVE this series. I've worn my vhs tapes out playing them so often. I'm looking forward to replacing them with the dvds.

Thank you!
