Disneynature confirms DOLPHIN REEF for Disney+, Natalie Portman to narrate
DOLPHIN REEF is the next feature coming from Disneynature and it will be launching on Disney+! Actress Natalie Portman will narrate the tale of the adorable aquatic mammals.
Created with Disneynature’s signature storytelling style, the film introduces Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who can’t quite decide if it’s time to grow up and take on new responsibilities. Dolphin society is tricky, and the coral reef that Echo and his family call home depends on all of its inhabitants to keep it healthy. But Echo has a tough time resisting the many adventures the ocean has to offer. Keith Scholey, who directed Disneynature’s “Bears,” helms the film.
DOLPHIN REEF will join the platform’s robust slate of original nonfiction programming, including “Be Our Chef,” “Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies” (w/t), “Earthkeepers” (w/t), “Encore!,” “Ink & Paint,” “Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2,” “Marvel’s 616,” “Marvel’s Hero Project,” “Magic of Animal Kingdom,” “(Re)Connect,” “Rogue Trip,” “Shop Class” (w/t), the untitled Walt Disney Imagineering documentary series, and “The World According to Jeff Goldblum.” Disneynature’s “Penguins” will also be available on the platform in 2020.
DOLPHIN REEF debuts on Disney+ on November 12, 2019.
