Justin Bartha Reprising Role in National Treasure Disney+ Series

Disney+ has announced that the fan-favorite character from the National Treasure films will be returning for the upcoming original series coming to the streamer. Riley Poole is set to guest star in the upcoming series with Justin Bartha reprising his role.

Bartha played the character in the original film and the sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets which were released in 2004 and 2007 respectively. Riley Poole was a computer hacker who was both a partner and best friend of Nicolas Cage‘s Ben Gates. Although set as the comic relief of the films, it does not go unnoticed that Riley’s intelligence and critical thinking were just as impressive as Cage’s Gates as they venture into their quest to uncover history’s lost treasures.
