Night at the Museum 4 (Kahmunrah Rises Again) is an upcoming 2022 computer-animated comedy fantasy film directed by Shawn Levy. Accordingly, It’s a spin-off to the Night at the Museum franchise and serves as a sequel to Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014).
In August 2019, following the purchase of 21st Century Fox and its assets by The Walt Disney Company, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that a fully animated sequel of Night at the Museum is in development. Then, the project will be released as a Disney+ exclusive film, as a co-production between Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and 20th Century Studios. In October 2020, the movie was officially titled Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again. The project will be CGI-animated and was scheduled to be released in 2021. However, in August 2021, the film was delayed to a 2022 release date.
Night at the Museum 4 – Plot
The plot centers around Larry’s son, Nick, who is hesitant to follow in his father’s footsteps as a night watchman. Years after the events of the last film, Larry’s son Nick becomes the new guardian of the museum. But, when things seem to go very well, Kahmunrah comes back and plots revenge.
In addition to Nick and the titular villain, the movie will also feature returning characters: Jedediah, Octavius, Teddy Roosevelt, and Sacagawea with the addition of Joan of Arc. Accordingly, production began on November 2, 2020. Shawn Levy will serve as executive producer. The original cast is not expected to return.
