Arrow Media Working on Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Arrow Media is working with National Geographic on the Disney+ original natural-history series Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom goes behind the scenes of Disney’s U.S. zoological theme park, with cameras giving a glimpse into the inner workings of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Epcot’s The Seas.

Tom Brisley, creative director of Arrow Media, said: “This is the first direct commission for National Geographic from Disney+ and we are thrilled to be making it. Arrow Media is proud to be granted the first full behind-the-scenes access to see the incredible work that takes place at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Their commitment to animal welfare and animal conservation is second to none and it has been such a rewarding experience to capture that in the series.

“There’s no better time to be a factual producer. We are delighted to be consolidating and growing our relationship with National Geographic, Disney+ and other leading streamers.  We also have a long-standing relationships with all the main American cable channels and we are delighted to grow with them as their streaming services come online.”
