The new cinematic adventure, directed by James Mangold, stars 80-year-old Harrison Ford as an archaeologist who races against time to get a magic dial that is able to travel through time to change the course of history.
The film premiered in Shanghai on Monday at Disneyland and in Beijing on Tuesday.
Chinese actor Pan Yueming dubbed the young Indiana Jones. Pan went to the Shanghai premiere and shared some interesting stories while dubbing the archeologist at a younger age.
Writer Xu Lei, known by his penname Nanpai Sanshu, one of the highest-paid novelists in China, said at the Shanghai premiere that Indiana Jones is one of the stories that inspired him to finish his best-selling franchise The Grave Robbers' Chronicles.
