“Secrets of the Whales”

Hollywood filming meets the wide open ocean with “Secrets of the Whales,” a new documentar­y miniseries coming to Disney+ on Thursday, April 22. Produced by big-time Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron — the mind and talent behind such modern film classics as “Aliens” (1986), “Titanic” (1997) and “Avatar” (2009) — this four-part docuseries narrated by Sigourney Weaver (“Alien,” 1979) follows various pods of whales as they migrate, hunt, breed and live their lives. Using footage captured over three years from more than 24 different locations, “Secrets of the Whales” bridges the gap between humankind and whales, showing that despite our many difference­s, we all have the same core needs, capacity for love and, more than anything, we all share the same planet. Disney teams up with National Geographic and world-class underwater explorer/photograph­er Brian Skerry (“Ocean Soul,” 2011) to present this educationa­l, family-friendly series directed by Brian Armstrong (“Raging Bull Shark,” 2020) and Andy Mitchell (“American Serengeti,” 2010).
