Why Elephant Is The Only Nature Film This Black Girl May Watch

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m not a fan of the Disneynature films.

I mean, I love nature, and I love watching nature films with my dad on Saturdays after cleaning, but will this Black girl ever pull up a nature film to watch on her own?

Hell nah!

When Penguins came out a few years ago, in theaters, I stared at the notification blankly wondering who the hell was going to the theater to see some damn penguins. Ain’t that what the zoo is for?

(And look … if I wanna see penguins on screen, I’ll just throw on Madagascar! Lol Those the only penguins I wanna see on a big screen! Sorry not sorry.)

So why the hell am I (sorta) excited to see Disney Plus’s new Elephant nature film? Two words.

Meghan. Markle.

Yup! Our Princess is narrating Disney Plus’s new Elephant nature film and I’m just excited to hear her voice on screen. Lol (Is that weird? *shrugs)

That’s legit it! That’s the only damn reason I plan on watching this damn thing. Lol I mean … my daughter’s favorite animal is the elephant so she’ll probably watch this gleefully, but not I says the cat! I’m just here to hear the Princess. Dassit. Lol

About Disney Plus’s New Elephant Nature Film

Elephant Disneynature Film Meghan Markle

In recognition of Earth Month, Disney+ announced that the Disneynature film “Elephant,” narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, will premiere on April 3.

Directed by Mark Linfield, co-directed by Vanessa Berlowitz and Alastair Fothergill, and produced by Mark Linfield, Vanessa Berlowitz and Roy Conli, “Elephant” follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd makes an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert.

Led by their great matriarch, Gaia, the family faces brutal heat, dwindling resources, and persistent predators, as they follow in their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.

(See, none of that sounds interesting to me. Lol But whatever!)

In recognition of “Elephant,” Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund are supporting Elephants Without Borders, an organization working in Botswana to ensure people and elephants thrive.

Elephants Without Borders is working on strategies to protect Botswana’s elephant haven, helping to reduce human-wildlife conflict through education, economic development, and solutions that either redirect elephant migration away from people or provide communities with tools that help to protect themselves and their properties when elephants are nearby.
