The Easter Eggs Connecting Star Wars and Indiana Jones
J Thoendell stashed this in Film
Imagine the surprise my seven year old self had when watching Temple of Doom and noticing that the establishment that Indie, Short Round and Willie just escaped from is named ‘Club Obi Wan’? To be put it delicately, my brain nearly exploded. I also couldn’t understand it when my other little girlfriends didn’t care. It’s okay, we’re no longer friends. I found their lack of faith disturbing.
As it turns out, they’re a lot more crossovers between the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies than this one Jedi Master easter egg.
It is a common thing for filmmakers to do.
Quentin Tarantino regularly references his movies in other movies, and so does Disney.
