About “MAGIC OF DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM”
Disney announces a brand new show, “The Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom,” premiering on Disney+ on September 25th. It is an 8 episode series brought to you by National Geographic. It will allow us to explore the magic of nature within Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and The Seas with Nemo & Friends at EPCOT. An ultimate tribute to the 300 species and 5,000-plus animals cared for by our dedicated and highly skilled team. Narrated by Josh Gad. It was filmed at Walt Disney World over a span of five months.
As we wait in anticipation for the new series’ debuting on Disney+, I’m pleased to reveal the movie poster below.
Each episode of the docuseries will feature a specific area of the park and some of the day-to-day activities of the parks’ resident animals:
