Join Athena, Wewe, and Mimi in their heartwarming adventure, “The Elephant Queen”.
“The Lion King”‘s Chiwetel Ejiofor narrates the journey of a family of elephants. The trailer discusses the parallels between elephant and human families. Athena, the herd’s matriarch, leads her family with love, courage, and compassion through the tough, dry, but beautiful African savannah.
“The Elephant Queen” won the Cinema for Peace International Green Film Award of the Year, was an official selection at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and the 2018 BFI London Film Festival, and was invited as a special selection to the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
The film is directed by Emmy and Peabody Award winners Mark Deeble and Victoria Stone, who spent 25 years living in the East African bush, organically preparing for “The Elephant Queen”. Deeble is also the cinematographer and writer, and Stone and Lucinda Englehart are the producers.
The film opens in select theatres on October 18, and on AppleTV+ November 1.
