The film marks one of the final roles played by Robin Williams who died earlier this year after shooting on the film had wrapped. The late actor, who was 63, played a wax model of Theodore Roosevelt in all three films, coming to the aid of Ben Stiller’s security guard Larry Daley. 

Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan also return as cowboy Jedadiah and Roman general Octavius, while Stevens joins the cast as dashing knight Sir Lancelot. 

RadioTimes.com has a series of brand new snaps from the third and final film in the trilogy featuring some of its star-studded cast.

The latest instalment sees the action switch from New York’s American Museum of Natural History to the British capital of London with Rebel Wilson and Ben Kingsley playing a security guard and Egyptian Pharaoah at the British Museum. 

Ricky Gervais returns to play museum director Dr McPhee with Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney (in his final film role) and Bill Cobbs back to play retired guards Cecil, Gus and Reginald.
