Across snowy forests, under scorching African sun and into the darkest depths of the ocean, embark on an incredible journey to the far corners of the Earth. Animal Kingdom takes audiences on an awe-inspiring adventure to celebrate the diversity of life on our planet.

Through brilliant nature footage, meet members of the six families of the animal kingdom. Fly, swim, slither and crawl with the offbeat dung beetle, the irresistibly cute penguin, the ferocious crocodile and majestic whales with their mysterious vocals—heard best in The Dome. The informative, family friendly storytelling makes Animal Kingdom an enjoyable film for all!

As veteran natural history and large-format filmmakers, writer-directors Paula Grusovin and Amelia McCarten give viewers an up-close look at a rich cast of animal characters.

Animal Kingdom is produced by Definition Films and distributed by K2 Studios. It was released in 2022 and runs for approximately 45 minutes.
