(ABC News) – Earth Day is upon us, and Disney+ has a number of movies and television programs to help families mark the day.

Those looking to explore eye-popping corners of the planet may want to delve into National Geographic’s offerings, while others who want to tour the U.S. can spend time with “America’s National Parks.” And Disney enthusiasts have a number of animal-centric animated classics to rewatch, from “Finding Nemo” to “The Lion King.”

But perhaps the most talked-about nature film on Disney+ is “Elephant,” the Disneynature documentary narrated by Duchess Meghan.

In the new film, Meghan narrates the migration of an elephant named Shani as she and her family trek across Africa.

“I’ve been very lucky to be able to have hands-on experience with the elephants in their natural habitat. When you spend time connecting to them and the other wildlife, you really understand we have a role to play in their preservation and their safety,” she said in a clip provided to “Good Morning America” by Disney. “We see in this film just how remarkable they are. Their memories are amazing. The close connection of the herd, the protectiveness of their young — I think they are a lot more like us than they are different.”
