Disney has announced that Awkwafina (“The Little Mermaid,” “Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens”) is going to be the narrator on an upcoming Disney+ Original series, “A Real Bug’s Life”.
Inspired by the World of Disney and Pixar’s “A Bug’s Life,” the new Disney+ Original Series from National Geographic, “A Real Bug’s Life”, is an incredible adventure into nine different micro bug worlds around the globe, where the forces of nature play out on a miniature scale and where tiny creatures rely on amazing powers and extraordinary alliances to make it through each day. The stakes are high … even if the critters are extraordinarily small.
With new developments in filming technology and narrated by fun and witty guide Awkwafina, follow the incredible stories of the tiny heroes living in worlds beyond the imagination — from a jumping spider looking for a home on the streets of New York to a Costa Rican orchid bee’s first day on the job making perfume! Full of mind-blowing new behaviours and larger-than-life characters, this family-friendly series shows that “A Real Bug’s Life” can be every bit as fantastical as any animated film.
Tom McDonald, executive vice president, Global Factual and Unscripted Content, at National Geographic, said in a statement regarding some new announcements about its new shows, including “A Real Bug’s Life”, that:
“The narrator’s voice is such a crucial part of what makes a Natural History series successful. Angela, Awkwafina and Jeremy, each in their own way, bring such an enormous amount of charisma, personality and passion to these distinctive projects. From Awkwafina’s wit to Jeremy’s warmth and Angela’s Shakespearean sense of drama, we feel both very excited and very proud to have such powerful storytellers guiding our audiences on these epic wildlife journeys.”
Janet Han Vissering, senior vice president, Development and Production added:
“We are celebrating not just the majestic creatures, big and small, captured on screen, but also the talent behind the lens who are integral to best-in-class storytelling,” said. “The beauty of narration reflects the stunning visual cinematography that brings incredible storytelling to life.”
The series was initially announced at the Disney Investor Day in 2020, but no release date for “A Real Bug’s Life” has been announced.
