Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Following a competitive pitch, we were thrilled to be selected to create a title sequence, over twenty 3D maps, technical explainers, lower-thirds and other graphics for a new Disney+ series.
Described by Disney as ‘a place where wonder meets the wild’, the Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom gives viewers a behind the scenes look at two of the world’s most famous theme parks – Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Epcot’s ‘The Seas’. Audiences will be able to see what it takes to care for the rare creatures and operate the parks.
Commissioned for Disney+ by National Geographic, Arrow Media produced the series consisting of eight episodes. Narrated by Disney favourite Josh Gad (the voice of Olaf!), the show features interviews with Imagineer Joe Rohde and animal care experts.
Stephen Coldicott, Lead Producer and self-confessed Disney nut commented “Finding out we’d won our first project for Disney+ on my birthday was one thing. Having our work reviewed by Bob Iger and the team at Disney and described as ‘amazing’ was the icing on the cake.”
The show’s Executive Producer added “Delivering to such a high standard during the tumultuous events of recent months and working in such an unfamiliar way has been nothing short of phenomenal. The team and I are extremely grateful for the creativity and dedication you’ve shown. Above all, you’ve been a pleasure to work with which has helped make a very testing time that much more bearable. And Disney+ clearly couldn’t be happier, which is no small feat.”
The Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom starts streaming on Disney+ on September 25 2020.
