If you thought Angela Bassett‘s voice was memorizing in movies, then you might enjoy her newest project. Angela is narrating a wildlife documentary on National Geographic called, “The Flood.”
The documentary is about animals living in the heart of Africa’s Okavango Delta. Her voice brings an ease and captivating curiosity to the intense stories of these lions, elephants, and leopards. Bassett even told Variety she found this project to be super relatable to her.
“I found the stories of these resilient, beautiful animals so fascinating and relatable. I hope that viewers are drawn into this rarely seen kingdom in a way that inspires them to help protect it for years to come.”
Geoff Daniels, EVP and general manager of Nat Geo Wild also raved about how Bassett’s voice leveled up the documentary. He said her “distinctive, confident and energetic voice elevates this narrative and makes you feel as if it’s Mother Nature telling the story herself.”
Believe it or not, this isn’t her first time narrating a documentary. Last year, Angela narrated a documentary based on a true story about an African boy and an American lawyer, and their long road to justice, called “Remand.”
“The Flood” is slated to premiere on Nat Geo in the U.S. on Nov. 25, and will internationally be seen in more than 170 countries.
