National Treasure Starring Nicolas Cage Is Now Streaming On Disney+
| Last updated
At long last people, the joyous day has come when we can watch both National Treasure films on one streaming platform.
The Nicolas Cage adventure films were made by Disney back in the noughties, and as such, it seemed logical that both would be available on Disney+. However, when the streaming service launched in the US back in November, only the second film National Treasure: Book of Secrets was on there.
This was due to a streaming deal with Netflix, but now at long last fans of the films will be able to watch them both on Disney+.
The first film follows Benjamin Gates (Cage), an historian whose family have hunted for treasure they believed to be hidden by the Freemasons for generations. One major clue leads Benjamin to conclude that the secret to the treasure is hidden in the Declaration of Independence, which he subsequently sets out to steal.
As well as Cage, the 2004 film also features stars such as Diane Kruger, Justin Bartha, Sean Bean, Jon Voight and Harvey Keitel.

Earlier this year, Disney began working on a third instalment of the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Chris Bremner, who worked Bad Boys for Life, is reportedly writing the film and Jerry Bruckheimer will be taking on the role of producer, having also recently worked on the third film in the Bad Boys franchise.
Details are sparse at the moment, but it's definitely a series that Cage was keen to revisit in the past.
Speaking to ComingSoon.net back in 2007, the actor - who is now 56 - said: "With National Treasure I believe that it should become more and more 'International Treasure'. I was very happy to see that we went to London, England and Paris, France, but I'd like to see the movie go wider still.
"I'd like to go into Africa, Egypt, Asia, and keep going. My hope is that Ben [Gates, the films' lead character] is recruited and he gets a dossier from these other countries about their history, and has to download it and learn it, and then try to go on these hunts on their behalf.
"That would be a lot of fun for me."
