It’s Friday and time for some new content to be added to Disney+ in Canada. This weeks new additions include new episodes of “Weird But True“ and “The Magic Of Disney’s Animal Kingdom”.
Here is the full rundown :
Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Episode Two – Kenya, the Gutsy Giraffe
On the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, Kenya, a Masai giraffe, steps up for a pedicure that could make Disney history as animal keeper Rory and the team attempt to provide unique hoof health by training her to undergo a “nail” trim, voluntarily. Kenya proves to be a very apprehensive patient, but the team perseveres knowing one small step for her is one giant leap for the park’s giraffes. Meanwhile, out on the savanna, African elephant Mac, — the park’s biggest resident — has a routine checkup that reveals a mouthful of mystery. Over in the Affection Section at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, it’s make or break for a much smaller resident, Popcorn, a rescued chicken with an egg problem who requires surgery. Behind the scenes, Disney Imagineers, including the visionary Joe Rohde, dream up a magical palm tree that illuminates the elephants during the park’s evening safari.
Weird But True – Episode 308 –Our Solar System
Charlie learns that the Global Space Administration is looking for researchers and explorers to go on the Interplanetary Expedition – a one-way trip to explore the solar system. Carly is nervous because a one-way ticket means that they would never come back! So, both she and Charlie head to the Mars habitat in Hawaii to experience what it is like to live in outer space. Renowned astrophysicist Michio Kaku is a special guest star, playing fictional character Buster Infinity.
One Day At Disney Short- Episode 144 – “Pablo Tufino: Ride Show Technician”
Pablo Tufino, Computer Ride Show Technician at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, provides a glimpse into the twilight transformation of Pandora – The World of Avatar. The change from day to night brings the Pandoran world to life, and through the illumination of custom lighting and automations each area of the land is given a unique look and feel that continues to amaze guests…and Pablo!
Zenimation Extended Edition
Unplug, relax, and refresh your senses for a moment of mindfulness with Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Zenimation -an animated soundscape experience. Whether it’s baby Moana being called by the ocean, Anna and Kristoff walking through an icy forest, or Baymax and Hiro Hamada flying over San Fransokyo, these iconic scenes become an aural experience like no other with the sounds of ocean waves, an icy forest and soaring flight. Zenimation pays tribute to both the visual and sound artists who have created Walt Disney Animation Studios’ legacy of films. Created and edited by David Bess. From Walt Disney Animation Studios
Animal ER (S2)
In Season Two of “Animal ER”, one of the largest veterinary hospitals in the country opens up new departments for our cameras, including their Critical Care, Cardiology, Dermatology and Ophthalmology wings. This season, procedures include the miraculous recovery of sight, the ability to walk again, and saving animals in critical condition. But no matter what the technology, Gulf Coast’s biggest asset is their staff, and their personal ties to their animal patients.
