Meghan Markle is making a sudden return to your streaming queue just in time. Despite conflicting rumors over the past few months, Markle has indeed been at work doing voice roles for Disney. However, the real-life duchess will not be in one of the studio's famed princess movies. Instead, she's narrated the nature documentary Elephant. It will premiere on the Disney+ streaming service on April 3rd.
Typically, Disneynature films use documentary footage to tell the story of a family group of the titular species. Markle joins an impressive group of past narrators for the series. Meryl Streep, Tina Fey, and James Earl Jones have all previously lent their voices to Disneynature films.
Typically, one Disneynature film a year is released to movie theaters near Earth Day in late April with a percentage of the opening weekend box office going to a relevant charity. It is not clear if Elephant was originally intended for cinemas.
Though, for those more interested in the news of new nature films more than Markle's involvement, you're in look. The same day Disney+ is also releasing Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman. Penguins, narrated by Ed Helms, will also premiere that same day after bowing in movie theaters last year.
For royal watchers, the announcement credits Markle as "Meghan, Duchess of Sussex" without the "H.R.H." Markle and husband Prince Harry's last day as official members of the royal family is set for March 31st.
