Some of the unsung heroes of Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be celebrated in a new documentary series coming to Disney+.

“Magic of the Animal Kingdom” will be produced by National Geographic for Disney+, set at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Epcot’s SeaBase Aquarium. Viewers will get to see backstage and see how these conservationist Cast Members work to protect endangered species and uphold the values of the Disney Conservation Fund.

For those looking to see these Cast Members and their efforts up close and personal, they’ll be able to see them at work when Rafiki’s Planet Watch reopens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this summer, or at The Seas with Nemo and Friends at Epcot.

Disney+ launches in the United States on November 12th, 2019.
