Ultimate Geek Maps of Indiana Jones and Star Wars

Ever want to map out the movement of Indiana Jones or Luke Skywalker during their famous movies? One guy did and now you can enjoy tracing their adventure with the tip of your finger.

I am going to let you onto a little secret of mine that I am made fun of time and time again – I love Harrison Ford. And I don’t mean I just think he is a good actor, I mean I love the guy. For an older actor, he is quite good looking. In fact, my love (some call it “obsession” but what do they know…) is so well known, that once, as a birthday gift, a few of my friends got together and bought me a life size cardboard cutout of Han Solo, I kid you not. And while that cutout is long gone, my admiration and appreciation for the actor still exists. And of course, aside from Han Solo, the other most well-known character he has played is Indiana Jones. (I think Jack Ryan comes in at a close third.)

Anyway, because of my love of Harrison Ford, and these two characters he has played specifically, I know the Star Wars Prequel movies and the first three Indiana Jones movies (I don’t really count the fourth one, much like the rest of the world), by heart. I know which scenes happen when and what happens in each of these scenes. Therefore, when I stumbled across these pictures that show the history of the trilogies in map form, I knew I had to take a closer look.

(I know you are tracing the route with your finger, remembering what happens at each place!)

Created by Andrew DeGraff, these series of posters feature the Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogies retold as maps following the movements of the main characters. Take a look at the others below!

Now who wants to make big blow up copies of all these posters and send them to me stat?!
