Filmmaker Brian Skerry tells us, “It speaks to the complexity of these animals and their culture. They are very sentient beings, they’re highly evolved.” He continues, “They possess cultures that we don’t fully understand.”
You won’t want to miss this incredible documentary from National Geographic which took over three years to film and encompasses 24 locations from around the world.
The documentary was Executive produced by James Cameron making it less of a surprise that Weaver is involved. It centers around the relationships within whale communities including a rare discovery that beluga whales actually give each other names so that group can keep track of one another.
The National Geographic four-part special premieres on Earth Day, April 22 on Disney+.
