Everyone favorite classroom cult classic series about Nick Cage stealing the historical American artifacts is now going to become a Disney Plus series with a new, young cast. In a Collider interview with Jerry Bruckheimer, he details that the franchise is not only developing a third film but a Disney Plus series. The cult classic film series is now having a script being drafted for the third film with a spin-off series set supposedly in the same universe with the possibility of a cross over still on the table.
“We’re certainly working on one [National Treasure] for streaming and we’re working on one for the big screen. Hopefully, they’ll both come together and we’ll bring you another National Treasure, but they’re both very active….The one for Disney+ is a much younger cast. It’s the same concept but a young cast. The one for theatrical would be the same cast. The film version is being written right now. The television version is in process. We have a pilot script done and an outline of the future episodes.” -Jerry Bruckheimer.
National Treasure’s cult classic nature appears to be a priority with Disney as it seems they want to capitalize on the love for the series to bring it to the streaming world to garner more viewers for Disney+. The series currently has a pilot script done as well as more episodes outlined for the future. Hopefully once the current lockdown lifts, Disney can get the series into proper production and prepped for small screen.
