A softer side of Indiana Jones is coming to Disneyland.
During an interview this week, Glenn Kelman a Disney Entertainment Productions senior show director, said that direct hits choreographed into the “Secrets of the Stone Tiger” and the related Adventureland stunt show will be taken out. Kelman said there are three direct hits in the whole sequence that will be removed.
“We haven’t had a big negative response,” he said. “But there will be more pushes and shoves than direct hits.”
Kelman said that the crowd enjoys when Indiana Jones is beat up on, but the bad response is when he hits the show’s female character, playing Col. Dr. Irina Spalko, in the face.
“There are things that can happen in a movie that just shouldn’t happen in a theme park,” Kelman said.
