Animal Superpowers (3 x 60’) – Hosted by acclaimed actor Sir Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation), this groundbreaking documentary series investigates the incredible superpowers of nature’s deadliest animals; from shape shifting octopuses that change the colour of their skin in an instant to salamanders that have the alien-like ability to re-grow lost limbs. The series begins premiering this month on Nat Geo Wild.
The series uses a mix of action-packed location filming following intrepid scientists tracking and catching these extraordinary animals, remarkable footage of extreme animal behaviour, and stunning CGI animation to explore the creatures’ anatomy and biology. Sir Patrick Stewart hosts the series in an immersive CGI-enhanced ‘Animal Ark’, that allows him to interact with detailed virtual models of the creatures to explore the science behind their incredible powers.
