Disney has released the first trailer for National Treasure: Edge of History, a new original series coming to Disney+.
Jerry Bruckheimer, Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed executive produce the series alongside Rick Muirragui, who also serves as a writer.
During San Diego Comic-Con, Disney provided some early details on the upcoming series. The teaser trailer is just a short fifteen-second shot of the main character, although a behind-the-scenes featurette dives into the series in a little more detail.
Edge of History is based on the National Treasure film franchise and looks to take place after the events of the film. Here’s the official description from a Disney press release, “The series 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.”
Opposite Jess is Catherine Zeta-Jones as the series’ villain, a black market dealer and treasure hunter named Billie. During the featurette Zeta-Jones says the show “hasn’t lost that historic National Treasure vibe.”
Below are full details on the National Treasure: Edge of History cast, including a couple of returning characters from the films.
- Zuri Reed (Flatbush Misdemeanors) as Tasha, Jess’ ride-or-die best friend.
- Antonio Cipriano (Jagged Little Pill on Broadway) as Oren, a self-obsessed goofball with an encyclopedic knowledge of conspiracy theories.
