National Treasure: Edge of History teaser released as Harvey Keitel joins cast of Disney+ series

Last Updated on July 24, 2022

The upcoming National Treasure series for Disney+ may lack Nicolas Cage (for the time being), but a few old friends from the movie franchise will be appearing. During the National Treasure: Edge of History panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Harvey Keitel would be reprising his role as FBI Special Agent Peter Sadusky as a guest star. A teaser trailer for National Treasure: Edge of History was also released. The teaser is rather brief, but Disney+ also dropped a behind-the-scenes featurette, both of which you can check out below.

National Treasure: Edge of History focuses on a young heroine, Jess (Lisette Olivera), a brilliant and resourceful DREAMer who embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover the truth about her family’s mysterious past and save a lost Pan-American treasure. In addition to Harvey Keitel, Justin Bartha will also be reprising his character of Riley Poole in a guest-starring role. Poole appeared in the two National Treasure movies as a computer expert and a friend to Nicolas Cage’s Benjamin Gates. Following the release of National Treasure: Book of Secrets in 2007, a third film was in development but couldn’t get off the ground. Nicolas Cage was asked earlier this year if another National Treasure movie was possible, but he replied, “No, the priority was to turn it into a TV show so I would say probably not.

The series also stars Zuri Reed (Flatbush Misdemeanors) as Tasha, Jess’ ride-or-die friend who joins the treasure hunt but is forced to reevaluate her belief system to help her best friend; Antonio Cipriano (Jagged Little Pill) as Oren, a lovable but self-obsessed goofball with an encyclopedic knowledge of conspiracy theories that attempts to win back Tasha’s affections; Jordan Rodrigues (Lady Bird) as Ethan, Jess’ childhood best friend who has loved her since the day they met; Jake Austin Walker (Rectify) as Liam, a swoon-worthy struggling musician, with a permanent chip on his shoulder, who comes from a long line of treasure hunters; Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago) as Billie, a badass billionaire, black-market antiquities expert and treasure hunter who lives by her own code; and Lyndon Smith (Parenthood) as FBI Agent Ross, a dogged investigator who begins to realize there’s a greater conspiracy at hand. 

National Treasure: Edge of History doesn’t have an official release date yet, but the teaser does state that it will be “coming soon” to Disney+.
