Want to know how to watch the Indiana Jones movies and tv series in order? With Indiana Jones set to return to the big screen in 2023 (and with a spin-off show in the works), it’s no wonder that many of us want to know how to catch up on the Indiana Jones movies in order. However, some might not know that there is also an Indiana Jones series that chronicles the childhood of Indy - uncreatively titled The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles - that came out in the '90s.

In this guide, we explain how to watch Indiana Jones in order, including all four movies, the upcoming sequel, and where to fit in the Young Indiana Jones series.

How to watch Indiana Jones in chronological order

When Raiders of the Lost Ark first released way back in 1981, no one could have anticipated that we’d all be waiting eagerly for Harrison Ford to return for a fifth movie over 40 years later. There’s always been some Indy going around: the '80s had the original trilogy, the '90s got the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and kids growing up in the naughties will likely remember Kingdom of the Crystal Skull very well. With Indiana Jones set to return for a new generation, and possibly pass the torch to a new adventurer under Disney’s ownership, we’re all eager to catch up on the life of the snake-fearing hero.

Below, you can learn how to watch every Indiana Jones movie and the series in chronological order. Note: depending on your location, much of these are availale on Disney+:
