Indiana Jones Wiki

Paramount Pictures is an American movie and television company that distributed the first four Indiana Jones films.

Its contract with Lucasfilm Ltd. (LFL) had meant that the company would distribute a fifth film should one be made. However, LFL's acquisition by The Walt Disney Company in October 2012 led to Disney negotiating a new deal with Paramount.[1][2] The movie's poster in 2023 revealed that the production was presented by Disney and Lucasfilm in association with Paramount.[3]


The first four Indiana Jones films begin with the Paramount logo, a mountain summit, which fades in to match the opening shot of each film, a representation of a mountain peak:

Other Indiana Jones sources have referenced the Paramount logo motif. The Lucasfilm Games logo of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure fades into that of the "Lucasfun Circus". Indiana Jones and the Sargasso Pirates begins with the first panel showing the tip of an iceberg. Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb opens on a bell-shaped stone head in Ceylon and the opening shot in the Wii/PS2 version of Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings includes a solitary mountain peak near the Sudan Temple that Indiana Jones is exploring.

Although Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny includes the Paramount logo, the fade in is instead given over to the LFL logo.
