A beautiful lost real-life princess looking for adventure in the great wide somewhere? Of course, Disney were going to make her part of their world sooner or later.
If you’re a Disney fan, you should be wetting yourself over those Disney Renaissance refs.
Moving on from my camp wordplay… Rumours of Meghan Markle’s sensational return to the world of acting have been rife since her and Prince Harry announced to the world that they were stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family at the beginning of 2020.
I know, right? What a f*cking year 2020 has turned out to be ALREADY.
It has been officially revealed that the 38-year-old former Suits star has nabbed a job working for Disney, more specifically, she has nabbed a role narrating a new Disney+ original movie called Elephant.
Walt Disney Studios announced the news on their official Twitter page earlier today.
The House of Mouse wrote:
“Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.”
Okay, so nothing earth-shatteringly shocking here. Disney+ is sh*t hot right now and we all know that Prince Harry and Meghan have a soft spot for elephants (they are constant rallying for their protection and donating to conservation efforts #babes) – so this seems like a pleasant transition back into Hollywood for the Duchess of Sussex.
Although, I was getting rather riled up about Meghan rocking up in the MCU next year or something, but sure, let’s start slow.
Look, just be thankful we’re not writing about coronavirus for a hot minute.
