The National Treasure franchise is officially getting a reboot at Disney+ in the near future!
The long-gestating National Treasure TV series has been greenlighted with a 10-episode order. Also, National Treasure film producer Jerry Bruckheimer and writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberley will executive produce the reimaging of the franchise.
However, the franchise will have a new lead character. Jess Morales is taking the torch from Benjamin Gates, the National Treasure films’ protagonist played by Nicolas Cage.
The description of the series says it “explores the timely issues of identity, community, historical authorship and patriotism, told from the point of view of Jess Morales, a twenty-year-old DREAMer who, with her diverse group of friends, sets off on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover her mysterious family history and recover lost treasure.”
No release date, but we will post more news when details emerge.
