“Path Of The Panther” Coming Soon To Disney+ (US)
Disney has announced that the National Geographic documentary “Path of the Panther”, is coming to Disney+ on Friday 5th May 2023. The film was originally announced to be coming to Disney+ last week, but never appeared, but has been rescheduled.
Drawn in by the haunting specter of the Florida panther, National Geographic Explorer Carlton Ward Jr. and a coalition of biologists, ranchers, conservationists, and Indigenous Peoples find themselves on the front lines of an accelerating battle between forces of renewal and destruction that have pushed the Everglades to the brink of ecological collapse. This odyssey of hope and heartbreak is the culmination of more than five years of field research, 500,000 still images, and over 800 hours of ultra-high definition camera trap footage. Against all odds, wild panthers have been stunningly captured in their native ecosystem, as they’ve never been filmed before.
The film is the cornerstone of the ‘Path of the Panther’ project, supported by the National Geographic Society and many other partners that inspired the passage of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act – the first legislation of its kind and a blueprint for addressing habitat fragmentation and species extinction across the globe.

The film was given a short theatrical release earlier this year, and it has been directed by Eric Bendick. Leonardo DiCaprio is also an executive producer of the film.
