“Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom” to Debut this Friday on Disney Plus!

Disney Plus‘ “Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom,” debuts this Friday, September 25th, exclusively on Disney+.

Produced by National Geographic and narrated by the award-winning, fan-favorite Josh Gad, gives viewers a backstage pass 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.

Each of the eight episodes dives into the details, unveiling the multifaceted aspects of animal care, conservation, and Disney Imagineering and showcases the parks’ magnificent array of more than 300 species and 5,000-plus animals and the herculean tasks their animal care experts undertake to keep things running day and night.

“Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom” invites fans of Disney, nature, and animals to hang out with all the parks’ residents, including baby Grace, the newest member of the gorilla troop. Then, hop over to Harambe Wildlife Reserve to come face to knee with supermom Masai giraffe, Kenya, and up close and personal with Gus the hippo.

Viewers can travel to the savanna to witness Dakari, the alpha male African lion, lord over his land and meet Kinsey, the alpha lioness, who’s the real ruler of the pride. The series incorporates cutting-edge technology, including custom-built GoPro housings, 18-foot cranes and underwater camera systems, to reveal the world-famous dedication, pioneering conservation and visionary genius that IS Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

We’re so excited to stream this all-new, Disney+ original series, as it just so happens to feature our favorite park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Will you be streaming it, as well? For more information about Disney+, click here.
