Disneyland has been a place for fans of the Star Wars franchise to live their own intergalactic adventure since the opening of Star Tours – The Adventures Continue in 1987, and now with the possibility to explore the Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to live a new and exciting journey. However, Guests may find more Star Wars in unexpected places in the Park.
David Vaughn (@davidvaughn) recently posted a video on Instagram detailing how Indiana Jones Adventure has a hidden Star Wars detail. As Guests venture into the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, they can hear the Idol of Mara, voiced by no other than Hollywood legend James Earl Jones, who also plays Darth Vader in the Star Wars franchise and Mufasa in The Lion King franchise. You can click here to see the video.
And as if that wasn’t enough, since Dr. Indiana Jones is played by Harrison Ford, who also plays Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise, Guests can encounter the daring scoundrel in this attraction as well, at least in a way.
We can’t wait to check this hidden detail out on our next visit to The Happiest Place On Earth!
More on Indiana Jones Adventure
One of the most popular rides at Disneyland is also Indiana Jones-themed. Indiana Jones Adventure is a fast-paced, thrilling ride in search of Indiana Jones as he explores the rumbling Temple of the Forbidden Eye. Guests must confront inconceivable dangers, like precarious precipices over molten lava, screaming mummies, swarms of giant insects, spear-throwing wraiths, collapsing bridges, slithering snakes—and a massive rolling boulder.
The official Disneyland website describes the attraction as follows:
An Ancient Legend
Follow Indy’s footsteps into the crumbling Temple of the Forbidden Eye past intricate booby traps. Inspect carvings and frescos that tell the story of Mara, a powerful deity who promises great treasures—and vengeance to those foolish enough to gaze into its all-seeing eyes.
Brave Unimaginable Perils
Board a rugged troop transport and enter the Chamber of Destiny. Confront inconceivable dangers, like precarious precipices over molten lava, screaming mummies, swarms of giant insects, spear-throwing wraiths, collapsing bridges, slithering snakes—and a massive rolling boulder.
If you find yourself in jeopardy, only one man is brave enough—or crazy enough—to save you… Dr. Jones!
The Disneyland attraction is also home to a popular yet rarely seen character living in the Park.
