Disney+’s animated ‘Night at the Museum’: Trailer, release date, more
Get ready to go back to the museum!
Almost 10 years since the last movie came out, Night at the museum is back and this time, animated. From Disney + comes the new movie Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again. And based on the trailer, it looks like it’s a lot of fun.
As with the last three films, Shawn Levy is still involved, but as a producer, not as a director. Instead, the director will be animator Matt Danner, whose credits include The loud house and Johnny Test among others; he previously served as director and showrunner for the Disney XD show The Legend of the Three Caballeros. Authors include Ray DeLaurentis and William Schifrin, who previously worked together on The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild.

What we learned from Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again Supporter:
The trailer for the new one Night at the museum film shows a new night watchman on duty before being scared away by the dinosaurs and the world of the museum coming to life. As soon as he leaves the building, the subjects (among them Teddy Roosevelt) cheer before the real-life night watchman Larry Daley (formerly played by Ben Stiller – now Zachary Levi) enters. He’s leaving for the summer and needs someone to take over for him, and the items suggest that his clumsy teenage son, Nick, would be perfect. From there, the trailer follows Nick and his adventures in the museum, including an encounter with Kahmunrah, the evil artifact from the second film Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. Watch the trailer above for yourself right above.
Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again Synopsis of the plot:
On Disney+, the synopsis for the film reads:
“Following in his father’s footsteps as a night watchman at the American Museum of Natural History, Nick Daley is familiar with the museum’s ancient tablet that brings everything to life when the sun goes down. But when the mad ruler Kahmunrah escapes, it’s up to Nick to save the museum once and for all.”
Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again Actors:
It appears that the original cast is not involved in this project as Ben Stiller is not reprising his role as Larry Daley and of course the late Robin Williams was unable to take on the role of Teddy Roosevelt. Still, the cast is very impressive, with Zachary Levi as Larry (Tangled), along with Joshua Bassett as Nick (High School Musical: The Musical: The Series), and comedian Thomas Lennon (Reno 911) now plays Teddy. Other actors include SocietyGillian Jacobs, Saturday Night Liveis Bowen Yang, and White Lotus‘ Steve Zahn.
