Two cast members from previous films in the franchise will reprise their roles in National Treasure: Edge of History. Justin Bartha, who plays Riley Poole, and Harvey Keitel, who plays FBI Agent Peter Sadusky, will both appear in the series' first season.

Will Nicolas Cage Reprise his role as Ben Gates?

It seems Nicolas Cage will not be reprising his role as Benjamin Franklin Gates in National Treasure: Edge of History, but we are still hoping for a cameo.

Ben Gates was the main character in the first film in the National Treasure franchise. Gates was an American History expert who teamed up with Riley Pool and Abigail Chase (played by Diane Kruger) to find some of the most important treasures lost in time.

Jess with Jake Austin Walker as Liam

The Disney+ original series is about two young treasure hunters, Jess Valenzuela and Billie Pearce, looking for three mysterious boxes holding clues to find the hidden treasure Jess' dad told her about many years before. Jess is attached to the treasure because she believes it will teach her more about her family and history.

Based on what we know, the series will draw inspiration from the Mexican-American wars with influences from the Mayan culture. The entire series is meant to expand on the premise of the first two films.
