Our two newest Disneynature films, “Elephant” and “Dolphin Reef”, launched on Disney+ on the 3rd of April 2020.
Disneynature’s 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 ancestors’ footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.
Megan Markle narrates the Elephant movie, a relief for the Elephant team who no longer have to keep it a secret!
In the Footsteps of Elephant follows filmmakers as they capture the epic journey of African elephants across the Kalahari desert for Disneynature’s “Elephant”. The team faces extreme weather, inaccessible terrain, crocodile-infested waters and close encounters with lions in order to shine a light on these remarkable creatures and their ancient migrations.
Narrated by Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winning actress Natalie Portman,
Disneynature’s “Dolphin Reef” tells the spectacular story of Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who seems far more interested in exploring the coral reef, and its intriguing inhabitants, than learning to survive in it.
Diving with dolphins chronicles the making of Disney nature Dolphin Reef, the story of a young Pacific bottlenose Dolphin named Echo. From wave surfing with dolphins in South Africa to dancing with humpback whales in Hawaii, filmmakers go to great lengths– And depths – to shed new light on the ocean’s mysteries. Explorer seeing Céline Cousteau narrates English-language version.
“Penguins: Life on the Edge” follows the witty and tenacious team of filmmakers behind Disneynature’s “Penguins”, a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve. To fulfil their mission, the elites cinematographers must brave the brutal Antarctic, pushing through temperatures of -40 degrees, hurricane strength wins and the overwhelming aroma of one million penguins.
Rotten Tomato news!
-“Dolphin Reef” has just taken the top spot of Disney+ originals on Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer with a 100% score! For anyone familiar with the Tomatometer this is an amazing number.

Congratulations to the whole Disney Nature team!
