Disney experts will take viewers on a journey through the landscape of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park in a one-hour documentary-style show set to premiere Tuesday, June 27 on Animal Planet.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Alive with Magic will feature interviews with the creators and caretakers of this theme park who share conservation messages, reveal immersive encounters with wildlife, as well as peek into the natural habitats of the animals who call Disney’s Animal Kingdom home. The TV special also showcases the can’t-miss attractions and entertainment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as it transforms from a day-into-nighttime park.

There’s also exclusive footage of the new Pandora – The World of Avatar, including interviews with iconic filmmaker James Cameron whose vision of flying on a banshee and sailing through a bioluminescent rainforest becomes a reality.

Be sure to tune in on Tuesday, June 27 at 8 pm ET on Animal Planet. Here is a preview of what’s in store.
