Disney+’s NATIONAL TREASURE Series Reveals New Adventures
For many years, fans have been cheering for the idea of more movies for the national treasure franchise. And while Nicolas Cage won’t dust off his flashlight, torch, or other adventure gear, we get more than National Treasure. We’ve known for some time that the upcoming Disney+ series, titled National Treasure: Edge of History, would be a ten-part “extension of the blockbuster movie franchise”. And that it would star Lisette Alexis as Jess, a 20-year-old DREAMer (a person who entered the United States under the DREAM Act) who embarks on an adventure to uncover the story of her family. And, of course, to find treasure. This time, everyone will go in search of a lost Pan American treasure.
And now we have our first look at the series in action, thanks to the National Treasure: Edge of HistorySan Diego Comic-Con. This national treasure tease doesn’t reveal much, but it sets the tone for the series to come.
In the teaser, star Lisette Olivera is seen getting ready for action. Looks like we have maps, clues, and plenty of research in store as part of this adventure show.
A behind-the-scenes featurette also gives us another look at what we can expect from the national treasure derivative series.
National Treasure: Edge of History stars Lisette Olivera, Jake Austin Walker, Antonio Cipriano, Jordan Rodrigues, Zuri Reed and Lyndon Smith. Additionally, Catherine Zeta-Jones will appear on the show playing “a badass billionaire, black market antiques expert, and treasure hunter who lives by her own code.” A role that we can’t wait to see come to fruition. Also, much to the delight of fans, Justin Bartha will reprise his role as Riley Poole in the films. We can’t wait to see what capacity he will appear in the series. Finally, it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Harvey Keitel, who played Peter Sadusky in the original National Treasure releases, “will be joining the series as a guest star in the same role.”
We are thrilled to see Bartha and Keitel reprising their roles. Although it seems that Nicolas Cage has no involvement in this national treasure series, we can’t help but hope that maybe Benjamin Franklin Gates has one last trick up his sleeve. That would really be something.
National Treasure: Edge of History will stream on Disney+. According to the streamer, it should be released on X.
