Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the ex duchess and duke of Sussex, made major headlines in February with their decision to step back from royal duties. Whether you’re in favor or against Megxit, it’s something that certainly cannot be ignored, and more so now, as Meghan has made a comeback in movies with a Disney plus nature documentary called Elephant.
Directed by Mark Linfield and Vanessa Berlowitz, Elephant follows an epic journey of an African elephant named Shani, her son Jomo, and their herd across the Kalahari Desert. This film reveals the various hardships these elephants have to endure including brutal heat and limited resources as they follow their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush and green paradise. This documentary is narrated brilliantly by Megan Markle and according to sources Prince Harry also provided some valuable input in the recording process. Director Linfield said, “We had Harry from the cheap seats in the back sort of suggesting some alternative pronunciations.” “Only on the African words because obviously he’s spent so much time in Botswana,” the documentary’s producer, Vanessa Berlowitz quickly clarified.
A few other interesting facts about this documentary are that Meghan didn’t take a single penny for this voiceover work, and instead, Disney donated towards protecting Elephants that reside in Botswana. Well, isn’t this is the kind of positivity we need in these trying times? Also, the voice-over session for this documentary was done in top-secret at the Pinewood Studios in London.
Well, now that you have all the details, don’t miss this perfect opportunity to watch this documentary that is currently available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
