Where is Indiana Jones Filmed?

November 20, 2023

The Indiana Jones franchise is one of the most iconic film series of all time, and the films were filmed in some spectacular locations. While some of the locations have been shut down, many still remain open and can be visited by fans of the movies. The filming locations of the latest instalment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, were mainly filmed around Sicily in Italy. The stunning island is known for its rich history and breath-taking scenery. The movie follows Indy’s run-in with the cult’s demonic priest, the retrieval of a sacred stone and the realization that good triumphs over evil.

The filming location of the Temple of the Sun in the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was filmed at the magnificent Iguazu Falls, an impressive waterfall that is a compilation of 275 cascades straddling the Argentina-Brazil border. It was also the setting for the dramatic temple scenes in the second Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Other key shots from the movie were filmed in the US and Spain. Some desert shots were filmed in Utah’s Arches National Park, while others were shot at Spain’s Tabernas Desert.

Those seeking to replicate Indy’s daring dive off the top of the Shanghai Airport cargo plane can head to Elstree Film Studio in Hertfordshire, England. The set was built specifically for this film, and it even features the Obi Wan Club.

The action scenes that feature the chase between Indy and an enemy biplane were filmed at an abandoned airfield in Majocar, Spain. However, the actual plane was a vintage Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress from the USAF.
