ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

British naturalist David Attenborough, Britain's Princess Beatrice and the Duchess of Cambridge's brother James Middleton and his fiancee Alizee Thevenet were among the guests attending a special screening of new the documentary film "The Elephant Queen" at the Electric Cinema in London's Notting Hill on Thursday (October 17).

Veteran wildlife filmmakers Mark Deeble and Victoria Stone are behind the Apple TV+ movie, which is narrated by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.

"The Elephant Queen" centres on Athena, a 50-year-old elephant, and her herd who are forced to leave their watering hole and embark on a dangerous journey to a faraway oasis.

Athena is a "tusker", a rare elephant whose tusks grow long enough to touch the ground.

The film follows Athena and her offspring as they face challenges - manmade and natural - along their trek to the dry-season refuge.

It took Stone and Deeble, who also served as the screenwriter and cinematographer on the project, four years to make the film, which they shot in Kenya.

"The Elephant Queen" will be released in select cinemas on October 18 before launching on Apple TV+ on November 1.

A new report in The Information claims that co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg has attempted to sell Quibi's programming to Facebook and NBCUniversal while telling others he may have to shut down the company entirely. As reported by The Verge, Quibi has struggled to scale since its launch, dealing with a lackluster reaction to its first collection of content and a drop in subscribers after its 90-day trial offered at launch ended.
