Following on from the success of “Secrets Of The Whales” being released on Disney+ for Earth Day, National Geographic has a brand new documentary series coming to our screens this Earth Day, ‘Secrets of the Elephants’.
Elephants are powerful, loving and wise, but we are only starting to unlock their deepest secrets. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker and National Geographic Explorer-at-Large James Cameron, the series travels the world —from the Savannahs of Africa to the urban landscapes of Asia —to discover the strategic thinking, complex emotions and sophisticated language of elephants, shaping a unique and dynamic culture.
Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman and featuring renowned National Geographic Explorer and elephant expert Dr. Paula Kahumbu, the four-part series not only reveals the extraordinary lives of different families of elephants but also highlights how similar they are to us. “Secrets of the Elephants” will change everything you thought you knew about elephants forever.
“Secrets Of The Elephants” will premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Friday 21st April 2023 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on the National Geographic channel, with the other two episodes being released on Earth Day aka Saturday 22nd April 2023. This continues a recent trend of releasing National Geographic content on linear at first, before being released on Disney+ the next day. The international release schedule will be announced at a later date.
