Mickey loves the smell of money.

If you watched the final scene of National Treasure: Book of Secrets and thought to yourself, “Ah, that’s the beginning of National Treasure 3 right there,” give yourself a gold star, buckaroo — looks like you were right.

According to Jim Hill Media, Disney registered nationaltreasure3dvd.com and nationaltreasure4dvd.com at the end of January, thus signaling their intention to continue Nicolas Cage‘s stint as globetrotting historian/detective/treasure guy Ben Gates through at least two more sequels. Mr. Hill speculates that we can expect to see more Treasure sometime in 2010; in the meantime, for those of you who just can’t get enough Cage-as-Gates, Disney Press has apparently rolled out a series of “Gates Family Mystery” books. The first installment is on shelves now.

In other Disney sequel news, Jim Hill Media goes on to discuss the first far-off rumblings of a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean. While he doesn’t discuss any concrete reports (or even rumors), Hill does revisit the final moments of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, and passes along what he’s heard about a potential Pirates 4:

“I hear [it] would toss the Elizabeth & Will characters over the side in favor of doing a bawdy buddy picture which would star Jack Sparrow & Barbossa. Where both captains of the Black Pearl would initially be competing for the exact same prize. But eventually all the double crossing would have to stop as these two rivals were then forced to join forces in order to defeat some supernatural terror…”
