Disneynature’s next feature film Dolphin Reef will be released on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, when it launches on November 12, 2019.
Disneynature also announced Academy Award®-winning actress Natalie Portman (Black Swan) will narrate the film.
Dolphin Reef will “take audiences to spectacular and remote places to share remarkable wildlife stories captured by our award-winning film crews,” said Paul Baribault, vice president of Disneynature. “Dolphin Reef takes us to a thriving coral reef—one of the most fascinating and dynamic habitats on Earth—to see the incredible creatures who consider reefs their home.”
The film introduces Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who can’t quite decide if it’s time to grow up and take on new responsibilities. Dolphin society is tricky, and the coral reef that Echo and his family call home depends on all of its inhabitants to keep it healthy. But Echo has a tough time resisting the many adventures the ocean has to offer.
Dolphin Reef will join Disney+‘s lineup of original nonfiction programming, including Be Our Chef, Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies, Earthkeepers, Encore!, Ink & Paint, Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2, Marvel’s 616, Marvel’s Hero Project, Magic of Animal Kingdom, (Re)Connect, Rogue Trip, Shop Class, the untitled Walt Disney Imagineering documentary series, and The World According to Jeff Goldblum. Disneynature’s Penguins will also be available on the platform in 2020.
