Explore the wonder of Disneynature with two new documentaries coming to Disney+ on April 3
Aside from housing a treasure trove of Disney awesomeness, Disney+ is the home of Disneynature, the documentary arm of Disney Studios. Fresh off the back of last year’s acclaimed Penguins documentary which was celebrated for its beautiful cinematography, the studio is set to bring its wonders to subscribers of Disney+.
On April 3, Disneynature will debut two all-new documentaries on the streamer beginning with “Elephant“, narrated by Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex and “Dolphin Reef” narrated by Natalie Portman. Check out the glorious trailer below:
“Elephant” follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd makes an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert. Led by their great matriarch, Gaia, the family faces brutal heat, dwindling resources, and persistent predators, as they follow in their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.
“Dolphin Reef” dives under the sea to frolic with some of the planet’s most engaging animals: dolphins. Created with Disneynature’s signature storytelling style, the film introduces Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who can’t quite decide if it’s time to grow up and take on new responsibilities. Dolphin society is tricky, and the coral reef that Echo and his family call home depend on all of its inhabitants to keep it healthy. But Echo has a tough time resisting the many adventures the ocean has to offer.
As an avid nature documentary lover, I am thrilled to see new Disneynature content coming to Disney+. Penguins was nothing short of a treat for the eyes and a positive boost for the soul, and if Elephant and Dolphin Reef can harness the same brilliance, we can all look forward to a truly breathtaking spectacle. Whatsmore, the rollout for these documentaries will be simultaneous for both the US and the UK, meaning we all get to enjoy the gloriously immersive experience together – as it deserves to be.
Disneynature’s “Elephant” and Disneynature’s “Dolphin Reef” premiere April 3, streaming only on Disney+.
