What’s New on Disney+ in December 2022

The first National Treasure film was released in 2004, an archeological dive into the United States’ founding myths that played sort of like a louder, dumber Indiana Jones crossed with The Da Vinci Code. Of course it was a hit, prompting the creation of a sequel and no doubt funding the purchase of several additional castles for its star, Nicholas Cage.

Yet despite the enthusiasm for the franchise, which made National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets an even bigger global hit, and years of news and rumors, a third National Treasure was never made, even as its star completed his transformation into some sort of living meme. Instead, we’re getting National Treasure: Edge of History (Dec. 14), a Disney+ streaming series in which Cage’s Ben Gates isn’t even featured; instead the series focuses on a young Mexican-American Dreamer, Jess Valenzuela (Lisette Olivera) as she searches for her missing father, uncovers the secrets of her family legacy, and hunts for Pan-American historical treasures. It’s not like there’s no budget for this thing—the trailer looks slick and Catherine Zeta-Jones has a supporting role—so maybe Jess and Ben can team up in a future season.

Here’s everything else coming to Disney+ in December, including another film-to-streaming transplant minus its marquee name as the Night at the Museum franchise goes animated and loses Ben Still with the premiere of Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again (Dec. 9), another installment of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid animated reboot (Dec. 2), and a live performance of the songs of Encanto recorded earlier this year at the Hollywood Bowl (Dec. 28).
