Indiana Jones Blu-Ray Bonus Features Finally Revealed image
The Indiana Jones Blu-Ray Rolling Roadshow continues. After originally announcing that Dr. Jones and company were finally coming to Blu-ray way back in February, Lucasfilm and Paramount have continued to parcel out art, trailers, and information about the much-anticipated set. With Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures set to hit shelves a little over a month from now, on September 18th, Paramount has finally released details about the set's bonus features, and it doesn't look like fans will be disappointed.

In addition to tons of bonus content that had been previously released, the will also include "On Set with Raiders of the Lost Ark," which includes nearly an hour of rarely seen footage and interviews with the likes of Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Harrison Ford. Here's the full rundown:

So there you have it, enough Indy bonus content to choke a gundark. Wait, wrong franchise. One thing that stands out by its absence, however, is any commentary tracks featuring Spielberg, Lucas, Ford...anybody, really. I realize it's a bit petty to complain about that when there's so much other content, but there's just something about listening to the stars and filmmakers talk about the film while you watch it that lends the experience a sense of immediacy and perceived personalization that you don't get from featurettes and documentaries. I know Spielberg and Lucas don't often do commentaries, but Lucas did it for the Star Wars Blu-rays. Nobody could have twisted his arm a little?

Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures hits Blu-ray on September 18th. I'm so excited I won't even point out that calling it "complete" without the Young Indiana Jones Adventures seems like false advertising. What? I just did? Well, drat.
