The sequel, subtitled ''Battle of the Smithsonian'', was released in May 2009. Here, as the New York museum is being renovated many exhibits are stored in the Smithsonian. This brings with them a whole other genre of problems, as Ahkmenrah's brother Kahmenrah is animated at the Smithsonian and seeks to use the tablet's powers to open a portal and unleash his army. To stop him and protect the other exhibits Larry teams with Amelia Earhardt to unravel the mystery of the tablet and stop Kahmenrah.

* HistoricalInJoke: The WW2 sailor who nabs Larry's cellphone is named Joey Motorola. Wait, does this mean the TimeyWimeyBall could be in effect?

* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: Played with. It's clear in the OverlyLongGag between Larry and Kahmunrah with the hourglass, tablet, and combination that Larry is trying to avoid this situation. He is GenreSavvy enough to know that Kahmunrah probably won't release his friends and return Jed even if Larry does give him what he wants (and, in fact, the back-and-forth banter between the two implies that this is indeed the case), so he demands that Kahmunrah fulfill his end of the bargain before Larry holds up his. However, once Kahmunrah's henchmen show up with the combination, Kahmunrah snatches the tablet from Larry before carelessly tossing Jed's hourglass over his shoulder (which Larry then catches). He does not, however, say anything about releasing Larry's other friends, and it's implied that Kahmunrah doesn't care if Larry gets Jed back at that point because they'll both be killed by his Underworld Army anyway.

The first film was released on December 22, 2006, written by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon of Creator/ComedyCentral's ''Series/{{Reno 911}}'' and MTV's ''TheState'', and directed by Shawn Levy. A new novelization of the screenplay by Leslie Goldman was published as a film tie-in. Larry is a struggling inventor who is trying to bond with his son, so to make ends meet he takes a job as the night guard for the Museum of History. He learns from the retiring guards on how to deal with the various exhibits as they come to life because of a magical tablet displayed with Egyptian royalty Ahkmenrah. Recognizing the responsibility he has to keep order, he also has to fend off a nefarious plot to plunder the museum of its magic and riches.

The second sequel, ''Secret of the Tomb'', was released December 19, 2014. The final mystery of the origin of the tablet is revealed as they have to 'revive' its power since the magic is slowly wearing out, stopping in the middle of public showings. The London Museum holds the answers and with it massive hijinks abound. It was also one of the last film roles for Robin Williams after his suicide in August 2014, and for Mickey Rooney, who passed away in April of the same year; Rooney's appearance allowed him to become the first (and possibly only) actor to appear in a motion picture in '''10''' consecutive decades.
