At last years Investor Day event, Disney announced a new National Geographic documentary “Becoming Cousteau” would be coming exclusively to Disney+ following a short theatrical release.

This week, Disney has confirmed that the documentary will be released as a Disney+ Original on Wednesday 24th November in many countries including the US and UK.    No confirmation of a release in other countries like Australia and Canada have yet been released, but should be expected.

Adventurer, filmmaker, inventor, author, unlikely celebrity and conservationist: For over four decades, Jacques-Yves Cousteau and his explorations under the ocean became synonymous with a love of science and the natural world. As he learned to protect the environment, he brought the whole world with him, sounding alarms more than 50 years ago about the warming seas and our planet’s vulnerability. In BECOMING COUSTEAU, from National Geographic Documentary Films, two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker LIZ GARBUS takes an inside look at Cousteau and his life, his iconic films and inventions, and the experiences that made him the 20th century’s most unique and renowned environmental voice — and the man who inspired generations to protect the Earth.

If you don’t want to wait until Thanksgiving weekend to watch this documentary on Disney+, it will be playing in select cinemas in the United States from October 22nd 2021.  The film will also be released in UK cinemas on November 11th.
