What’s on the Indiana Jones Timeline?


The problem (or maybe the strength) of Indiana Jones is the fact that each story told in that universe is very episodic, with each story standing alone most of the time. Only the films and the Young Indiana Jones television show hold a solid chronology. The novels, comics, and video games are just too complicated to be included as canonical. But on the other hand, chronology and canon don’t seem to matter to Indiana Jones stories.

Regardless, this timeline is chronological, and therefore only focuses on the films and the television show. These are the highest level of canon according to Lucasfilm, though this could change now that Disney is holding the reigns. After all, the canonical status of the Star Wars expanded universe has already been wiped clean.
