Young Indy Volume 2 tour continues…

The in-depth tour of the Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Volume 2 continues at StarWars.com, getting ready for the release of this DVD set on December 18, 2007. Tired of the trenches of WWI? So are Indiana and his friend Remy!

On Disc 3: Phantom Train of Doom, Indy and Remy have been transfered to Africa, and promptly get lost on their way to their Belgian unit. Indy joins his childhood big-game hunting guide, Frederick Selous, and the 25th Frontiersman Battalion, Royal Fusiliers, in tracking down a train-mounted German artillery in the first half, and in the second half, Indy, Remy and the 25th Frontiersman capture the Thrawn-like Colonel Paul Von Lettow-Vorbeck. Documentaries include profiles of Paul Von Lettow-Vorbeck, Frederick Selous, and Jan Smuts.

Disc Four contains Oganga: The Giver and Taker of Life, in which Indy and Remy trek across the Congo, deal with a soldier who refuses to abandon an orphan from a village wiped out by disease, and are saved from death by Albert Schweitzer. Indy learns lessons about reverence for life from this piano-playing humanitarian, and then is forced to watch Schweitzer’s mission abandoned as the Schweitzers are expelled from Allied Africa. Documentaries cover Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer, the Congo, and the rise of pacifism.
