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.

Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: It's revealed that Larry not only forgave the three villains of the first film, he helped ensure their early release.


Added DiffLines:

** Rebel Wilson's character, at least during her initial scene, is nearly identical in personality and attitude, not to mention in terms of being a barrier to Larry, to Jonah Hill's security guard character in the second film.

* WilliamTelling: Possibly harmless, since done by the star constellations, i.e. it's just lightshow and can't hurt anybody...unless the magic goes havoc, of course.

* FauxActionGirl: Amelia Earhart continually insists she is able to take care of herself, but isn't seen doing anything particularly [[{{Hotshot}} awesome]] except for flying a plane for a few seconds before handing it to Larry (who has never even flown a plane before).

* BrickJoke: Daley's Devices seems to be built on Larry's experiences in the museum; in particular, the "unloseable keychain" stems from the kleptomaniac capuchin monkey.

* ChekhovsSkill: Larry's moves with his flashlight. First just a [[RuleOfcool cool move]], by the end of the movie, a life-saver.
