'Elephant': Meghan Markle To Narrate Doc For Disney+

Earlier this year, word spread that Meghan Markle partnered with Disney for an undisclosed project. Now, the nature of that project has been revealed.

The Duchess of Sussex will narrate Elephant, a Disney nature documentary slated to air on Disney+ on April 3.

The news was officially announced on Disneynature’s Twitter page today (March 26).

The film follows Shani, an African elephant who migrates with her male child Jomo with their herd across Botswana’s Kalahari Desert.

An official press release for Elephant from Disney+ revealed that the elephants face “brutal heat, dwindling resources and persistent predators, as they follow in their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.” Elephant was co-directed by Mark Linfeld, Vanessa Berlowitz and Alastair Fothergill.

Watch the trailer for Elephant below.
