On April 3rd, Disney+ will unleash a calvacade of Disneynature films in honor of Earth Month! Strap in for a fun ride as Disney+ debuts Elephant, narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, and Dolphin Reef, narrated by our favorite Academy Award-winning Queen of Naboo, Natalie Portman. But that’s not all. Disneynature’s Penguins will also make its Disney+ debut after the 2019 theatrical run. WARNING: The trailer below contains massive levels of animal-induced cuteness – I especially love the end.
Do you love behind-the-scenes featurettes? You’re in luck because the Earth Month collection on Disney+ will also include additional Disneynature behind-the-scenes titles including “In the Footsteps of Elephant,” “A Life on the Edge” and “Diving with Dolphins” which will show the unique filmmaking process of all three films. I can’t wait!!
And to top this off, Disney Pixar’s Onward will also be available to stream April 3rd – a silver lining to the otherwise terrifying and devastating COVID-19 pandemic currently sweeping the globe.
