“Dum. Da da da dum. Dum. Dad da da dum. Da da dat daaaaaaah da da dahhhh.

Listen to “The Raiders March.”

Indy Returns to Hollywood Studios

Soon, the dulcet tones of John Williams’ “Raiders March” will return to Echo Lake in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, inviting fans to “Cheer as Indy and Marion perform incredible stunts with explosive special effects—and learn the secrets behind the magic.”

One of the longest-running “stage shows” in Walt Disney World. The “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” returns guests to the era of practical filmmaking; it also harkens back Hollywood Studios’ original configuration – that of a working studio complete with educational experiences designed to put fans behind the scenes.

The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular puts fans into the “movie” – literally.

Epic Stunts, Indeed!

Firstly, the official Disney World website explained:

  • Watch live as the daring duo dodges deadly traps, battles bad guys, leaps from tall buildings, and makes thrilling escapes straight out of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The edge-of-your-seat suspense ends with a dynamite finale!
  • Along the way, get an inside look at how stunts are done with demonstrations that reveal how to safely throw and take punches, fall from tall buildings, and even wield whips in the midst of complex action sequences.
  • Raise your hand when the casting director steps on stage to choose some adult volunteers. If you get picked, you’ll appear as a costumed extra in the show.
