Raiders of the Lost Jedi Temple of Doom: A Fan Film of Epic Proportions was a special stage show presented one night only at the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios on August 14, 2010, as part of the park's Last Tour to Endor party, commemorating the closing of the Star Tours attraction.
The regular stunt show was modified to include Star Wars characters as well as characters from Indiana Jones, and the story of the show involved two rival fan film makers, one a Star Wars fan, and one an Indy fan, working together to make the most awesome fan film ever. Each of the three shows included special Star Wars celebrity appearances as extras in the show.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]
Two award-winning fan film makers are invited to work together to shoot the world's most awesome fan film. While not always agreeing, the two combine their love of Indiana Jones and Star Wars as they film several action scenes.
In the first scene, Indiana Jones breaks into a temple to try to find the Golden Lightsaber. After passing the skewered head of Jar Jar Binks, Jones finds that he has been followed by Boba Fett, and the two fight. After Fett is dropped into a fiery pit, Jones retrieves the Golden Lightsaber from its pedestal, only to trigger a trap, a rolling boulder which rolls past Jones to bowl over Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The two film makers bicker as they set up for the second scene where Jones and Princess Leia Organa come under attack by goons at Tosche Station. Bounty hunters, led by Fett, and including Aurra Sing and a Jawa show up, along with some thugs, who chase Jones and Organa, stripped out of her white gown into a metal bikini, from the streets to the rooftops. Han Solo and Chewbacca also show up, but are similarly attacked. After Jones and Organa escape from the bounty hunters, Darth Maul appears on the street and brandishes his lightsaber like the Arab Swordsman, and is shot by Jones.
In the final scene to be filmed, the filmmakers realize that they have more in common and enjoy each other's fandoms as they shoot the finale. Jones and Organa are under fire from stormtroopers as they attempt to steal a Flying Wing. Darth Vader arrives, and Jones uses the Golden Lightsaber to duel the caped villain, while Leia uses the plane's guns to take out incoming stormtroopers. Finally, Vader is defeated when the plane turns around, with Vader caught by its propellers. However, a fuel fire endangers the plane, and Organa escapes before it is destroyed by an X-wing starfighter.
