Archaeologist Sues Disney Over Lates ‘Indiana Jones’ Film

Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull

Real-life Indiana Jones, Dr. Jaime Awe, is suing Disney, Lucasfilm, and Paramount over the latest franchise installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Filing the lawsuit on behalf of Belize, Dr. Awe claims that the film used a replica of a crystal skull for "illegal profits."

The crystal skull in question, Dr. Awe says, was stolen by the treasure-hunting family Mitchell-Hedges 88 years ago, and having seen its likeness in the film now demands that the original be returned to Belize. "Lucasfilm never sought, nor was given permission to utilize the Mitchell-Hedges Skull or its likeness in the Film," read the lawsuit. "To date, Belize has not participated in any of the profits derived from the sale of the Film or the rights thereto."
