From the creative genius of Academy Award® -winning filmmaker and National Geographic Explorer at Large James Cameron and acclaimed National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Brian Skerry, the Disney+ original series Secrets of the Whales takes audiences on an epic journey into the lives of whales, revealing that they are far more like us than ever imagined.

Filmed over a period of three years across 24 global locations, Secrets of the Whales submerges audiences deep into the lives of five different whale families: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals, and sperm whales. Witness the incredible and tender moments as these majestic creatures make lifelong friendships, teach clan heritage and traditions to their young, and grieve deeply for the loss of loved ones—just like us.

As a concert experience, Secrets of the Whales features highlights from the four-part series paired with the triumphant performance of a live symphony orchestra.

Secrets of the Whales will stream on Disney+ on Earth Day, April 22.
