How many streaming services is too many?
When Disney’s new dedicated streaming platform Disney+ launches in Australia, it’ll be one more item on a long list.
The documentary, entitled Elephant, follows an elephant family on a 1,600-kilometre journey across the Kalahari Desert and will raise money for the charity Elephants without Borders.
It will be released on April 3 via the Disney+ streaming service as one of a series of animal and nature-themed features released to mark Earth Month.

A spokeswoman for Prince Harry declined to comment on the report, which The Sun dubbed as an exclusive. Meghan was raised in the Los Angeles area and her mother Doria still lives there.
People magazine, citing an unidentified source, said on Thursday the couple had already settled into a home in the Los Angeles area and had not ventured out.

The couple later said they found scrutiny by the British media — which they said tipped into harassment — intolerable.
The couple will cease their royal duties at the end of March as they carve out “a progressive new role,” mainly based in North America, which they aim to finance themselves.
