Disney+ has announced the full list of everything coming to the United Kingdom and Ireland in November including premieres of new Disney+ and Star Original Series, additional episodes of fan-favorite series, and new library title additions. One of the Disney+ Originals that will be added to Disney+ next month is National Geographic’s “Becoming Cousteau” which arrives on Wednesday, November 24th.
“Becoming Cousteau” gives an inside look at the life of explorer, filmmaker and beloved adventurer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, his iconic films and inventions, and the experiences that made him the 20th century’s most unique and renowned environmental voice.
From National Geographic Documentary Films, the studio behind Oscar® winner “Free Solo,” two-time Academy Award® nominee Liz Garbus (“What Happened, Miss Simone?,” “The Farm: Angola, USA”), Academy Award winner Dan Cogan (“Icarus”), and in partnership with Story Syndicate and The Cousteau Society, the life of legendary ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau is told through a treasure trove of previously unseen archival material. Featuring never-before-seen 4K footage from the Cousteau Society’s archives, Cousteau will provide audiences a “deep dive” into the renowned explorer’s remarkable life, revealing the man behind some of the world’s most significant contributions to contemporary environmentalism. Academy Award winner Evan Hayes of “Free Solo” is also a producer for this film. After festivals and a planned theatrical release, the film will be available exclusively to Disney+ subscribers.
