Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
Although George Lucas is most often associated to Star Wars he was also heavily involved in creating another series of films - Indiana Jones.

Lucas and director Steven Spielberg teamed up together to come with a new character, an adventuring archaeologist called Indiana Jones, played by Star Wars actor Harrison Ford.

With Lucas as executive producer the pair made three hugely popular films and have been working on making a fourth with Ford.

A 22-episode TV series was also made, called The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which shows Indy's life around the time of the Second World War.
