Cameron Takes the Plunge for Disney+

The same day it revealed hitting the global subscription mile-stone of 100 million, Disney+ released the trailer for an upcom-ing James Cameron production that “plunges viewers deep within the epicentre” of whale culture.

According to the publicity, Secrets of the Whales will reveal the mysterious and beautiful world of five species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals and sperm whales.

Here’s the media release:

The four-part series, from National Geographic, is executive produced by Academy Award-winning filmmaker and conservationist James Cameron (Avatar) and narrated by award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver. All four episodes will be available to stream exclusively on Earth Day, Thursday, 22 April, exclusively on Disney+

Featuring the expansive knowledge and skill of acclaimed National Geographic explorer and photographer Brian Skerry, the series ventures deep into the world of whales to witness the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures to reveal life and love from their perspective.

Secrets of the Whales unveils new science and technology to spotlight whales as they make lifelong friendships, teach clan heritage and traditions to their young, and grieve deeply for the loss of loved ones.

Filmed over three years in 24 global locations, throughout this epic journey we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than ever imagined. This is a personal story that very few are lucky enough to witness … until now.

Secrets of the Whales is produced for National Geographic by Red Rock Films. For Red Rock Films, Brian Armstrong and Shannon Malone-DeBenedictis are executive producers. For Earthship, James Cameron and Maria Wilhelm are executive producers and Kim Butts is associate producer. For National Geographic, Pamela Caragol is executive producer. The series is scored by composer Raphaelle Thibaut.

  1. Just wanted to mention (this is unrelated to Mr Cameron’s latest exploits for Disney+), I have recently discovered Plex – I assume it’s quite commonplace for a lot of other of your forum contributors and I’m “behind the curve”, but can I just say, I am very impressed so far – it just works seamlessly … artwork … episode series and episode numbers and descriptions … for any personal home media fans, IMHO its a game changer!

  2. I have been using Plex for some time actually myself! It’s easy to use and it’s perfect when you have a large library of movies and TV series even at disc quality! I then use Nvidia Shield as my streaming device!

  3. I agree – the range of file types Plex handles is impressive, the quality of playback is fantastic and I even like the fact that the TV show music is playing as your browsing episodes of a series. Finding subtitles is a doddle and the fact you can delete files from the comfort of your Layzboy is another bonus! I run mine through an Apple TV4 and have had no issues – so much easier than running through the built-in Apple TV app!
