Apple has acquired the global rights to the documentary feature film “The Elephant Queen,” directed by Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning wildlife documentarians Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble.
The nature film follows Athena, an elephant matriarch who will go to any length to protect her family when they are forced to leave their waterhole to survive.
It’s a story of love, loss and the strength of a family bond.
Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor narrates the film, which was screened Saturday at the Toronto Film Festival.
Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht of Apple’s worldwide video division led the acquisition charge, with Endeavor Content and Mister Smith Entertainment securing the deal.
