  • Indiana Jones Pre-show back to normal?

    Anyone know if the Indiana Jones pre-show video with Sallah is back to its usual length? I’m worried it’ll stay permanently abbreviated. (Maybe one day it can even return to the full-version from the 90s)

    I immediately noticed it was chopped when I went in July. I asked the CM about it and they said that it had been shortened due to Covid but I still waited at least 5 cycles of the abbreviated version and it was so sad. Can't wait for the old version to return!

            That's too bad it was shortened. It is one of the most fun parts of the attraction in my opinion. I remember back when the ride turned twenty, Disneyland had an event at Big Thunder Ranch (rest in peace) where Tony Baxter showed deleted scenes from the preshow, which was really neat.

              I'm sure someone probably complained somewhere and they shortened the video to be more focused on "safety". Like if you could really unbuckle yourself while the attraction is in motion and fall out.

                    A shortened one at that too. It only mentions the storage pouches and that the ride is rough and then ends. They cut out the part about the seatbelt which seems odd.

                        That's really a shame. It always looked like the Imagineers and actors had a lot of fun making those old news clips.

                          There's a longer version than pre-COVID? Does anyone have a link?

                            Just type in Indiana Jones pre-show on YouTube, there are several videos. It's basically the Eye On The Globe stuff they show before and after the safety spiel.

                              The video with Sallah used to be longer and actually used John Rys-Davies voice. When they shortened it sometime in the first few years after opening they modified the dialogue and used a voice actor. (The same one who provides the safety spiel you hear right after you go up the stairs just prior to loading).

                              https://youtu.be/ZZaKXPmceMU this video shows a piece of the old one at about 3:45. You can see Sallah explaining the safety mirror.

                                  Thank you so much! I’ve never seen that portion of the video. The more you know!

                                    They shortened the video when they reopened back when guests were limited in how much time they could spend indoors. Because you spent barely 30 seconds in that room, they cut the clip to just be the most essential of the safety spiel. But with that regulation now gone, they seem to have just not brought back the old clip. It wouldn't take tons of work to reupload the old one, but it's work nobody is willing to do.

                                    When I went in August my brother and I counted how many time we would hear the spiel after entering the room. I think it came out to around 12 times, and yes it was absolutely annoying. I can only imagine the CMs suffering in that spot.

                                      What you see today.....safety ...is what guest going see , for very long time......
                                      Sad about the "PREVIEW".....agree it is also sad, about the space......
                                      But the truth, I don't think Disney really care !

                                      I find Disney annoying at this point........But again ,I don't think Disney really care
                                      LoL
