Disney unveils the cast of the series inspired by Benjamin Gates, which is due out on its platform.

Disney + continues to draw on its biggest successes to expand its offer. After giving us a reboot of Mom I missed the plane, the platform will resuscitate its national treasure: Benjamin Gates. This comeback will take the form of a spin-off series, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, already at work on previous films.

Without Nicolas Cage

This time, the adventure will be without Nicolas Cage. However, it will be a question of exploring its heritage and reinventing the universe with new characters and issues. This time around, we’ll follow the adventures of young Jess, as she searches for answers about her origins and family.

We will also find Lyndon Smith (Parenthood) and Jordan Rodrigues (The Fosters) who will give the reply to Antonio Cirpiano (City on a Hill).

Behind the camera, it is Mira Nair who will work. The filmmaker, to whom we owe Vanity Fair released in 2004, will feature the screenplay written by Cormac and Marianne Wibberley. The couple is also no stranger to the license since they had already written the first two opus for the big screen.

The feature film still relevant today?

It has long been rumored that a third installment in the saga will be developed for the big screen. However, this project has so far never seen the light of day and things are obviously far from being done according to Diane Kruger. Asked by, the actress confides not to have been contacted to resume her role, however essential.

“I really do not know. No one has ever contacted me about the third one, so I don’t know. I have the impression that at this stage we are far too old. Never say never, but it’s been a while now! ”
