"I'm Indiana Jones. Who are you, some kind of test pilot?"
―Indiana Jones, to Luke Skywalker[src]

Doctor Indiana Jones was an archaeologist on an unknown planet in approximately 120-130 ABY.

Indiana Jones and Han Solo's remains.

Jones's native homeworld was an unidentified planet with many oceans and forests. The planet was very primitive compared to the rest of the galaxy, even being surprised at the common sight of a starship.[1] Sometime later, he met a young pick-pocket he dubbed Shorty. He also discovered a region on his planet known as Atlantis, along with other strange finds.[1]

One of his many discoveries was the habitat of Chewbacca (whom the local Human natives preferred to call "Sasquatch") and the crashed Millennium Falcon, which, as he admitted, was unlike anything he had seen before, even in Atlantis. Jones and his assistant, Shorty, started to explore the ship's wreckage, but decided to leave it alone after encountering strangely disturbing remains of Han Solo within.[1]

One day, while exploring ruins in a place called Mexico, Indiana Jones discovered an alien who abducted him to take him back to his home planet of Xantar.[2] While on the planet he was discovered by Luke Skywalker.[3]

Personality and traitsEdit

"By the way, did anyone ever tell you that you look a lot like my friend, Han Solo…?"
―Luke Skywalker, to Jones[src]

A light-skinned man with brown hair and eyes, Jones bore an uncanny resemblance to Rebel Alliance hero Han Solo, which both he himself and fellow hero Luke Skywalker noticed.[1][3] In the opinion of Bug-Eyes, he was lonely, depressed and cynical.[3]


Jones wore the same clothes wherever he went, including a brown fedora.[1][3][4] He also carried a whip and a primitive slugthrower pistol as a means for self-defense.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit


Indiana Jones meets Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Yoda Stories.

Dr. Henry Walton Jones Jr., better known as "Indiana Jones" or "Indy" for short, was created by George Lucas for Raiders of the Lost Ark, and famously played by Harrison Ford (ages 36-58). A total of four films have been made, which were co-written and produced by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg. The character was also played by Corey Carrier (ages 9/10), Sean Patrick Flanery (ages 16-21), and George Hall (ages 93/94) in George Lucas' The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles television series.

In addition to being the inspiration for Chewbacca, George Lucas' late dog Indiana was the inspiration for the Indiana Jones character. Also, Lucas' middle name is "Walton", which is revealed to be Indiana's middle name in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones.

Many cast and crew members, as well as authors have been involved in both the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises:

LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy features Indiana Jones's signature hat in the level where Han Solo and Chewbacca go to meet Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2 and C-3PO at the Millennium Falcon docking bay in Mos Eisley. Also featured is a baseball cap, a tall hat and a witch's hat.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga features a playable cameo by Dr. Jones, most likely due to the recently released LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, and the ease of porting character files between the compatible games. The game features himself using a whip or a pistol. Also, like many other characters, he can jump, roll, and fire three shots rapidly. Previews of Lego Indiana Jones show him with stubble on his face. However, his face here is the same as Han Solo (whose basic animations he shares).

In The Paradise Snare, Han Solo has many aliases given by Garris Shrike. One of them is "Jenos Idanian," an anagram of "Indiana Jones." Also the name of xenoarchaeologist Henrietya "Corellia" Antilles parallels that of Henry "Indiana" Jones; both are archaeologists and both have a placename as a nickname.

Jones makes an appearance in Star Wars: Yoda Stories (as a continuation to events seen in Indiana Jones' Desktop Adventures), where Luke Skywalker comments on his similarity to Han Solo.

In the 2009 game "Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings", Han Solo is one of the unlockable skins for the Wii version.
