Indiana Jones: The Tales Of Short Round Gets A Poster
A fan has made a poster for the would-be Indiana Jones: the Tales of Short Round series on Disney+.
Ke Huy Quan is back in the hearts and minds of everyone, as he won Best Supporting Actor in a Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes for his spectacular performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. However, everyone is now wondering if he would rejoin the Indiana Jones franchise, though fans have taken it upon themselves to pitch a new idea. A poster has been made for a spinoff series called Indiana Jones: The Tales of Short Round, which you can see below:
For those who might not recognize what is happening, Ke Huy Quan starred as the trusted associate of Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom: Short Round. He was a child actor that saw a ton of fame in the 1980s, as he was also part of The Goonies. Though many may have forgotten Quan through the years, his role in Everything Everywhere All At Once has now skyrocketed him back to the limelight.
Indiana Jones: The Tales of Short Round would be an amazing series, and we previously reported that the Indiana Jones franchise would be getting a spinoff series. Granted, that series is going to be of the animated variety, but it would be great to see Short Round showcase where he has been since being a child and helping to save the life of Indiana Jones. Ke Huy Quan also revealed that he would be willing to return to the character.
During an interview with the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Quan stated, “If Disney or Lucasfilm ever come to me and say, ‘We want to do a Short Round spinoff,’ I’m there man!” We would certainly join the world in welcoming Indiana Jones: The Tales of Short Round with open arms. Though the above poster is fan-made, it does look rather convincing.
Harrison Ford was rumored to be leaving behind the role of Indiana Jones, but we would certainly not count him out just yet. Ford could be one of the central figures in the Indiana Jones: The Tales of Short Round spinoff series, as he could periodically appear at some point in the would-be series. If Ford is leaving behind the mainline series of Indiana Jones, that does not mean he wouldn’t appear at some point as the man in some other franchise-related property.
Ke Huy Quan accepting his Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor is also one of the most heartwarming moments, as he thanked Steven Spielberg for giving him his first shot at show business. We would argue that Steven Spielberg might get involved as a producer for this would be Indiana Jones: The Tales of Short Round series or movie, which would certainly help to make it a reality.
While the poster for Indiana Jones: The Tales of Short Round is nothing but fan art, we would love for Quan to get his starring role in the universe once again. At the very least, we hope to see him return in some form for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. The reshoots might be too expensive to add him to the movie at this point, so we hope that he was already involved in sort of way via a cameo.
