Coming soon to Disney+ this stunning new four part original series from National Geographic premieres on Earth Day, 22nd April and is awash with never before seen moments. Produced by legendary filmmaker James Cameron and narrated by Sigourney Weaver the series sees two lifelong conservationists reunited for the first time since Avatar.

Filmed over 3 years in 24 global locations this groundbreaking new series ventures deep into the fascinating world of whales as we witness the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures to reveal life and love from their perspective. Throughout this epic journey we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than we ever imagined.

Secrets of the Whales unveils new science and technology to spotlight whales as they have never been seen before. Featuring the expansive knowledge and skill of acclaimed National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Brian Skerry, we witness how whales make lifelong friendships, teach clan heritage and traditions to their young and even grieve for the loss of loved ones. This is a personal story that very few are lucky enough to witness … until now.

The series includes scientific breakthroughs and never before seen moments such as evidence suggesting that Belugas give themselves names so groups can keep track of each other; baby belugas sharing their moms’ call signs, 30,000 humpbacks charging down the coast of Australia towards Antarctica and using breeches to talk to each other, the first cross-species adoption ever recorded; Beluga pod adopts narwhal as part of the pod and the first ever recording of a baby sperm whale feeding.

A sperm whale calf is recorded feeding for the first time ever.

With a beautiful soundtrack composed, produced and mixed by Raphaelle Thibaut, the three-year project will also be featured in the new National Geographic book, Secrets of the Whales, now on sale, and the May issue of National Geographic magazine, The Ocean Issue. 

“Secrets of the Whales,” from National Geographic begins streaming on Disney+ on April 22.
