Where to watch Meghan Markle's first Disney film, Elephant, from Australia

A perfect self-isolation activity.

By Jess Pullar
As we continue another week in self-isolation, many of us are likely facing a little dilemma - what TV show, film or documentary will we watch next?
You've likely binge watched Tiger King after all the hubbub surrounding the doco right now, and we've no doubt you've calmly wrapped up your fifteenth viewing of all episodes of The Crown.
Luckily, there's another documentary coming in hot that's likely to peak your interest in the coming days - and if you're a royal fan, you're going to want to take notes.
Meghan Markle has only just stepped back from her role as a senior royal family member (with the official transition occurring on March 31, to be exact), but she's already sussed out her first big project as she tackles her new chapter.
Announced by officials last week, the 38-year-old is voicing the brand new Disney documentary, Elephant, which will be released this coming Friday (April 3).
Narrating the nature film, Meghan's voice work will be put to the test - something new for the mum-of-one, who previously rose to fame thanks to her role on hit US TV series Suits.

Where can I watch Elephant in Australia?

Of course, we all have one big question on our minds as we cosy up on our beloved couches for the new film - how can we watch?
The documentary will be available to stream on Disney+.
If you're unfamiliar with the streaming platform, it does require you to sign up and pay for a subscription - starting at AUD $8.99 per month, or $89.99 per year.
The service is also offering a free seven day trial as well - so if you're a little unsure if you want to commit, you can simply sign up to peruse the catalogue - and watch Meghan's doco, of course - before making a final decision.

What is Disney's Elephant about?

The documentary follows one elephant family's life-changing 1,000 mile journey across Africa.
Meghan's involvement in the film was reportedly in return for a donation made to the Elephants Without Borders charity - a cause both the Duchess and her husband Prince Harry are passionate about.
Meghan reportedly recorded her voice over back in Autumn 2019, and it's unclear whether this occurred before or after she and Harry visited Africa during their official royal tour.
But undoubtedly, the documentary's plot line was one that peaked Meghan's interest immediately.

It is common knowledge that both Harry and Meghan are hugely passionate about elephant welfare.
Last year, the pair shared a photo from a trip they took together to Botswana in 2017, where they worked with Elephants Without Borders and equipped a bull elephant with a satellite collar.
Sharing a picture of the moment on Instagram, it was clear that the charity and its mission was a no brainer to support, making Meghan's decision to voice Elephant is all the more poignant.
