Natalie Portman to Narrate Disneynature's "Dolphin Reef"

All-New Feature Film to Debut on Disney+

In celebration of Earth Day, Disney+ revealed today that Academy Award(R)-winning actress Natalie Portman ("Black Swan") narrates the next feature film from Disneynature, "Dolphin Reef," which will release on Disney+, the highly-anticipated streaming service launching in the U.S. on Nov. 12, 2019.

"Dolphin Reef" dives under the sea to frolic with some of the planet's most engaging animals: dolphins. "Disneynature takes audiences to spectacular and remote places to share remarkable wildlife stories captured by our award-winning film crews," said Paul Baribault, vice president of Disneynature. "For 'Penguins,' which is in theaters now, moviegoers get to explore the vast and unforgiving Antarctic environment through the eyes of an Adélie penguin. 'Dolphin Reef' takes us to a thriving coral reef - one of the most fascinating and dynamic habitats on Earth - to see the incredible creatures who consider reefs their home."

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.

"For more than a decade, Disneynature has amazed and inspired the world through its acclaimed True Life Adventure films,'" said Agnes Chu, senior vice president of Content for Disney+. "We're thrilled to give Disneynature's unique stories a new home in our growing collection of original content."

"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.
