Disneynature is giving us a triple dose on Earth Day this year with the release of not just one but THREE films to be excited baout on the popular Disney+ streaming service. We already knew that DOLPHIN REEF begins streaming on April 3 this year but today we have confirmation that Disneynature ELEPHANT will also be released on the same day! Not only that but last year’s PENGUINS will also be added to the lineup!
The Earth Month collection on Disney+ will also contain additional Disneynature titles premiering on the service on April 3 including “In the Footsteps of Elephant,” “A Life on the Edge” and “Diving with Dolphins” which give viewers behind-the-scenes access into the unique filmmaking process of all three films.
These captivating films join an already robust collection of animal and nature titles highlighted throughout the month including National Geographic’s “America’s National Parks,” “Wild Yellowstone,” “The Flood,” “JANE,” “Before the Floods,” “Planet of the Birds,” “Sea of Hope: America’s Underwater Treasures,” “Kingdom of the White Wolf,” “Tree Climbing Lions,” Hostile Planet” and “Wild Russia.”
Narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, ELEPHANT follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd make 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.
The film is directed by Mark Linfield, co-directed by Vanessa Berlowitz and Alastair Fothergill, and produced by Mark Linfield, Vanessa Berlowitz and Roy Conli.
Disney Conservation Fund
In recognition of ELEPHANT, Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund are supporting Elephants Without Borders, an organization working in Botswana to ensure people and elephants thrive. Elephants Without Borders is working on strategies to protect Botswana’s elephant haven, helping to reduce human-wildlife conflict through education, economic development, and solutions that either redirect elephant migration away from people, or provide communities with tools that help to protect themselves and their properties when elephants are nearby.
Disney has a long history of supporting oceans and marine life around the world. Grants from the Disney Conservation Fund and expertise from Disney Conservation Team Wildlife have helped leading conservation organizations and communities to establish coral nurseries to help to re-grow their damaged reefs, build fisheries that save fish and provide local job opportunities, rescue stranded dolphins, and inspire children to explore and protect coastlines, reefs and other marine habitats.
So there’s obviously A LOT of really great things going on in relation to this movie and you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your home. But after you’ve streamed the movie and enjoyed the new adventures, you might find yourself with plenty more time on your hands and no where to go. In just that scenario, some people like to spend their time at home enjoying casino games. And although there aren’t any elephants native to New Zealand (unless you’re counting the southern elephant seal) you’ll also find similar thrills with the games of Online Casino New Zealand.
