A new Disney+ series based on the “National Treasure” franchise has been in the works for a while. Last year, during an interview, Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that he was working on the new series, and it was later confirmed that it had been greenlit.
The upcoming Disney+ Original series will explore the timely issues of identity, community, historical authorship and patriotism, told from the point of view of a new main character, Jess Morales, who is 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.
Mira Nair will be directing the series; she has previously directed “Vanity Fair” and Disney’s “Queen of Katwe.”
Recently, screenwriter, Maura Milan, updated her LinkedIn profile to show that she has been attached to the Disney+ series since May. She has previously worked on “The Vela” and wrote the books, “Ignite the Stars” and “Eclipse the Skies”.
This new series will consist of 10 episodes and is being made by ABC Signature Studios.
The first two National Treasure films are available now on Disney+
