Watch New Clip from Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again
Published 2 months ago
The Night at the Museum films may have ended back in 2014, but Disney is willing to see if there are any more stories to mine from the ‘Museum that Comes to Life at Night’ premise. This week will see the premiere of Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again, and we have a new clip bringing the ancient pharaoh in front of the new night guard.
Kahmunrah is a villain from the second movie Battle of the Smithsonian, and he was played by The Simpons’ Hank Azaria. Seeing that Azaria is a prominent voice actor, you would think that they would bring him back to reprise the character in the film, but I guess they wanted to save on the film—hence the animated format. I mean, they didn’t even get someone who sounded remotely like Robin Williams for the Ted Roosevelt role.
If anything, the Night at the Museum franchise has always been good fun, and I always love how they have ‘cameos’ from prominent historical figures played by some big-name actors as well. Maybe these animated films can spark interest for a new movie, but in the meantime, I’ll take what I can get.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Nick Daley’s summer gig as night watchman at the museum is a challenging job for a high school student, but he is following in his father’s footsteps and is determined not to let him down. Luckily, he is familiar with the museum’s ancient tablet that brings everything to life when the sun goes down and is happy to see his old friends, including Jedediah, Octavius, and Sacagawea, when he arrives. But when the maniacal ruler Kahmunrah escapes with plans to unlock the Egyptian underworld and free its Army of the Dead, it is up to Nick to stop the demented overlord and save the museum once and for all.
Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again comes out this Friday on Disney+.
