Meghan Markle's first project after leaving the royal family will be a voice-over role in a new Disney film.
The Duchess of Sussex will narrate "Elephants," which will be available on Disney Plus from April 3.
Disney confirmed the news on Thursday, and posted a new trailer for the film on Twitter.
A teaser of the film was shown alongside "Dolphin Reef," which Natalie Portman is narrating.
The trailer didn't show any clips of Markle's narration, however, the narrator of the trailer shared a synopsis for the film.
"'Elephant' narrated by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, follows one family's extraordinary 1,000-mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives," the narrator said of the film.
Disney also shared the first official poster for the film on Twitter.
The Times reported back in January that the duchess had secured a voice-over deal and instead of payment had accepted a donation to Elephants Without Borders.
However, this is yet to be officially confirmed by Disney or Buckingham Palace.
The film will be co-directed by Alastair Fothergill and Vanessa Berlowit, who Markle and Prince Harry met in Botswana while undergoing charity work with Elephants Without Borders in 2016, The Telegraph reports.
It's thought Markle signed on to the project before officially resigning from the royal family in January. Prince Harry was overheard telling director Jon Favreau that the duchess was available for voice-over work in a video during "The Lion King" premiere back in July.
