** If TheOtherWiki is to be believed about the production history of the fourth movie, we could've gotten it some fifteen years earlier with a very different plot if Lucas had not insisted on it involving extraterrestrials.

* ExtremelyLengthyCreation: The [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull sequel]] to the trilogy had been planned for over a decade, but it had to wait for a plot that all the major players (Spielberg, cREATOR/HarrisonFord, etc.) felt was worthy of the title character.

** Indy's failed attempt to impersonate a Scottish laird in ''The Last Crusade'' is an in-character version, if not a {{Lampshading}} of this trope, which originated with Harrison Ford attempting to mimic SeanConnery's accent while playing around.

* HideYourPregnancy: CateBlanchett was actually three months pregnant by the time she finished filming ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull Kingdom of the Crystal Skull]]'' which make her fencing on moving vehicle stunts even more impressive. Mostly averted as she clearly doesn't look pregnant at any point during the movie.
* PlayingAgainstType: CateBlanchett as a supervillain.

* YouLookFamiliar: ''Every'' foe Indy fights that is larger than usual, except for Dovchenko in ''Skull'', was played by the late British wrestler and stuntman Pat Roach. That makes the "giant sherpa" and the second German mechanic in ''Raiders'', the Thuggee overseer in ''Doom'' and a German WorldWarOne pilot in a deleted scene of ''Crusade''. You may know him also as General Kael, TheDragon from another Lucasfilm production, ''Film/{{Willow}}.''

** Vic Tablian plays one of Indy's Peruvian guides in the prologue of ''Raiders'' and the monkey trainer in the Cairo scenes. He returns in the TV series as recurring villain Demetrios, ''and'' after Demetrios is killed even shows up as an Armenian (finally Tablian's actual ethnic background) agent working in WorldWarOne Istanbul.

** Apparently [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Galadriel]] embraced Communism, cut her hair, and is now a brunette. Bit of a shift for CateBlanchett.
** [[Film/{{Gandhi}} Khan and Nehru]] are Mola Ram and Chattar Lal, Prime Minister of Pankot, respectively.

** The first drafts of the third movie had Indy getting in a haunted castle in Scotland. The castle (moved to Austria), the revolving door and even Indy speaking with a poor Scottish accent made it into the final film, but Spielberg didn't want to do another haunted house after ''{{Poltergeist}}''. The haunted castle finally showed up in a [[TheYoungIndianaJonesChronicles Young Indy]] TV episode, ''Transylvania, January 1918''.
