One of the most highly anticipated shows to come to Disney+ finally has a title! Up until now, the show based on the film series National Treasure has been known simply as “Disney’s National Treasure Series”. However, ahead of San Diego’s Comic Con where the show is hosting a panel, the official title was announced on Twitter. National Treasure: Edge of History will be the show’s moniker and it has fans excited.
Though the series won’t feature Nicholas Cage, star of the popular film franchise that the show is based off of, there will still be all of the action, suspense, and drama we have come to know and love from the movies. The logo doesn’t reveal much, but it reveals enough to know that the feel of the movies will be preserved in the show. It has been compared to “Indiana Jones-esqe adventure and intrigue” and we have to agree with that assessment, at least if the movies are any indication.
The series will feature a new generation of treasure hunters. Jess (Lisette Alexis), is a DREAMer who is determined to solve the mystery about her family’s hidden past to save an ancient Pan-American Treasure. Throughout the series she will have to outwit and outmaneuver dangers and those who seek to stop her from uncovering the truth.
Though Nicholas Cage will not be returning to his role, his co-star Justin Bartha will be reprising his role as Riley Poole on a recurring basis which will tie the new series to the films. Catherine Zeta-Jones also joins the cast to provide a bit of intrigue as a billionaire black marketeer. Lydon Smith, Zuri Reed, Jake Austin Walker, Antonio Cipriano, and Jordan Rodrigue will also join the series cast.
Production is currently underway, and while the series does not yet have a debut date, it is believed that the series will make its way to Disney+ in late 2022 or early 2023. We absolutely cannot wait to see this high octane adventure. Are you as excited as we are? Let us know in the comments!
