Principal Elliot T. Jindrake is the main antagonist in Max Keeble's Big Move. He is the former principal of John J. Curtis Junior High School and Max's archnemesis.
Jindrake is a corrupt, greedy businessman. He hates children and had only taken up the job for school principal to get paid.
However, his secret motive was to demolish the animal shelter and replace it with a football stadium. This would ultimately lead to his downfall when Max exposed his scheme and rescued the shelter, getting him fired for fiddling with the budget.
