The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle leant her voice to a new Disney documentary about elephants. Meghan narrates the aptly titled Elephants, which will begin streaming on April 3 on Disney+.
The film centers around a herd of elephants on an “epic journey” across the Kalahari Desert, and specifically follows an African elephant named Shani and her son Jomo.
“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,” reads a press release about the movie.
Back in January, it was reported that Meghan had signed a voiceover deal with Disney to benefit the wildlife charity Elephants Without Borders, and indeed this project is in partnership with the conversation organization.
Meghan recorded the voiceover in London last fall, after being approached by the filmmakers, Mark and Vanessa Berlowitz, last summer.
At this point, Meghan and Harry don’t have any other Disney projects on tap, but they have worked closely with the House of Mouse in the past. Last summer for example, the Sussexes attended the European premiere of The Lion King, and at the time, Harry and Meghan shared that Disney made a donation to their charity work in the environment and conservation space.
