It's time to go back for another Night at the Museum, but this time it's animated. Yes, Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again is the next big revival of an existing property coming to Disney Plus. It follows the Ben Stiller-led movies with a whole new look and cast.
And we have to say, while Night at the Museum looks great in animation — fantasy often works best when you unshackle it from the restraints of CGI — we're more excited about Kahmunrah Rises Again because of its voice actors. While you shouldn't expect Mr. Stiller back in the night guard outfit, this flick packs a strong supporting cast that could pull in people who don't have a strong association with it.
To see that Disney's enlisted the likes of Zachary Levi, Gillian Jacobs, Thomas Lennon (writer of the original film's screenplay), Bowen Yang and Steve Zahn, you get the idea that the people behind this movie have a strong idea of good comedic voices. It's enough to make us optimistic about its chances of becoming one of the best Disney Plus movies.
Here's everything to know about how to watch Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again, and check out the trailer:
