Ahead of the release of its new streaming service, Apple announced a wide variety of shows and films to lure in potential subscribers. And, if nature documentaries are your thing, Apple TV+ has something to convince you to sign up, too.
“The Elephant Queen” centers around a Kenyan elephant herd led by Athena, a 50-year-old female elephant.
Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble’s film begins with the herd at their green season home, but soon their watering hole begins to dry up, and they have to travel to find a new home during the drought.
Narrated by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, “The Elephant Queen” speaks to environmental and poaching issues that elephants face through the lens of one particular elephant family.
“The Elephant Queen” is available now on Apple TV+.
