Three days after the official “Megxit” date, Meghan Markle’s first project will be unveiled on the ADisney+ platform. As rumours have been circulating for several months, Meghan Markle will be recalling her commitment to elephant protection for the duration of a previously unseen documentary.
It’s now official: on April 3, 2020, the groundbreaking collaboration between Meghan Markle and Disney will be presented to the public on the new Disney+ streaming platform.
An event that is eagerly awaited as it is the first project of the Duchess of Sussex since she distanced herself from the Royal Family to live in Canada with Harry and their son Archie (10 months old).
On their Twitter account this Thursday, Disney Nature Studios unveiled the poster and trailer for the film Elephant, for which the former American actress lent her voice. A second film dubbed by Natalie Portman, dedicated to dolphins, will be unveiled the same day.
As rumours have been circulating for several months now: Meghan Markle has dubbed a new documentary film featuring a family of elephants on their journey across the African continent.
This project will benefit the Elephants Without Borders association, which fights for the protection of the species and for which the duchess is already involved. In 2017, during her trip to Botswana with Prince Harry, she helped place geolocation beacons on several mammals threatened by poaching.
This new project will therefore be released just three days after the official Megxit date of March 31. The collaboration between Meghan Markle and the American giant Disney has been in preparation for a long time, long before the Sussex announced their desire for independence last January.
In July 2019, during the London premiere of The Lion King, Prince Harry had indeed praised his wife’s talents as a double actress to Robert Iger, Executive Chairman of the Walt Disney Company… A strange coincidence that suggests that the Duke and Duchess were preparing their new life away from the Crown last summer.
