The voice of Josh Gad will take us on a journey to see what happens behind the scenes in two of the experiences with animals with the charm that only the house of Mickey Mouse can give them: the theme park Disney’s Animal Kingdom and The Seas with Nemo & Friends attraction at EPCOT.

From the hand of the animal manager, Rachel daneault; of Dr. Mark Penning, Vice President, Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment, Disney Parks, and veterinarian Dr. Dan Fredholm, the audience will meet interesting friends, such as the absolute sovereign of his pride, the lioness Kamari; the alpha lion Dakari, the giraffe super mom Kenya or the newcomer to the gorilla family, the baby Grace.

In a long distance chat with Who, Penning says that the Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom series – a National Geographic production – has a very clear objective: “We have a very wide selection of animal species and individuals that have stories to tell. We superimposed that.

“Our desire to show the incredible relationships of trust between animals and the people who care for them, how passionate we are about saving these animals. And it all comes down to how those stories are told, and that’s where they come in. Joe (Rohde, Walt Disney Imagineering, Portfolio Creative Executive) and their amazing team, “he adds Mark.

This series of Disney + will also allow us to know first-hand the experience of Rachel with gorillas: “There is an episode where you will see me with one in particular. It is our silver back from our family group and it is funny because what surprised me is that I never wanted to work with gorillas.

“And now they are a definition of my career, I work with gorillas here, but I can also talk to our guests about the gorillas that are in an orphanage in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which Disney really helped build, and actually maintains now.” , abounds Daneault.
