This past weekend at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, I got to speak in person with adventurer and natural history filmmaker, Bertie Gregory, about his brand new Disney+ Original series, “Epic Adventures With Bertie Gregory”, which was released globally on Disney+ Day.
During the interview, I asked Bertie about what the challenges were in filming the series, what was his favourite “toy” to use, about the second season and what his favourite Disney+ Original is.
In this new series, Bertie takes viewers on epic and nail-biting journeys that push into the most spectacular and secretive corners of our wild world. Armed with leading-edge film technology, this new series, breaks the mold of the traditional natural history program by telling extraordinary, real-life animal stories and taking viewers with him for every beat of the action. For weeks at a time, the charismatic BAFTA Award-winning cinematographer immerses himself into the animals’ lives to capture the untold stories of iconic creatures living in some of the harshest environments on our planet. In this season, we see Bertie braving the icy worlds of Antarctica in search of the biggest gathering of whales ever filmed and coming face-to-face with specialist buffalo-hunting lions in Zambia. In this multipart adventure series, he will take audiences on an ambitious odyssey across the globe, showcasing the natural world at a time when it faces its greatest challenges.
