The 18-second teaser reveals the main character, Jess, with an Indiana Jones-style opening, surrounded by artifacts from the previous movies and maps of ancient cities.
The featurette released on Disney+’s YouTube channel gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the cast, both new and original, along with some backstory for the series.
“Jess is a 22-year-old dreamer. She is tenacious, and she embarks on this Pan-American treasure adventure.”
Catherine Zeta-Jones plays “black market antiquity dealer” Billie Pearce, the antagonist of the series who is also on a quest to discover the treasure.
Reprising their roles from the original National Treasure movies are Justin Bartha (Riley Poole) and Harvey Keitel (Peter Sadusky).
Anyone concerned the series may not live up to expectations set by the movies can take it up with Catherine Zeta-Jones, who says, “It hasn’t lost that historic National Treasure vibe.”
The series is set to begin “streaming soon” on Disney+.
