"National Treasure", which is filmed and takes place in various locations across Philadelphia, will makes its long-anticipated debut on Disney Plus in April after being on Netflix. It is one of many movies and TV shows coming to the streaming service next month.

As Americans across the country continue to practice social distancing and isolation to mitigate the further spread of coronavirus, the need and desire for watching TV shows and movies while being stuck at home has maybe never been greater. 

As April approaches, the most-popular streaming platforms are beginning to release what new shows and movies will become available at the turn of the month. Both Netflix and Hulu have released what new programs are coming to their respective platforms next month, and Disney Plus has as well. Amazon Prime Video has not put out an official list yet, but when they do we’ll be sure to include too.

Arguably the biggest movie coming to Disney Plus next month is one with a significant connection to Philadelphia: “National Treasure.” The 2004 film starring Nicolas Cage has been a mainstay on Netflix, but given it’s a production of Walt Disney Pictures, it was only inevitable that the movie would eventually make its way onto Disney’s brand-new streaming service.

A significant portion of the movie takes place and is filmed in Philadelphia, as popular spots such as the Franklin Institute, Independence Hall, Ben Franklin Bridge, City Hall, Old Pine Street Church, Reading Terminal Market and the Liberty Bell all make an appearance during the film.

The movie will make its much-anticipated move from Netflix to Disney Plus on April 30. Below here is a list of all the new shows and films that will become available on Disney Plus starting next month.
