Arnold Schwarzenegger will lend his voice to 3D Entertainment Films' underwater documentary Wonders of the Sea.
Co-directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau and Jean-Jacques Mantello, the doc filmed over three years from Fiji to the Bahamas. It takes audiences on a journey to discover the ocean while learning more about the threats that put it at risk.
"When I first saw the footage of this film, I was blown away and I immediately wanted to be involved. It is not only an incredible visual feast but it is also conveying a strong message about the need to protect our ocean," said Schwarzenegger, who also produced the project, along with Francois Mantello.
"Arnold and I share the same enthusiasm about what should be done to protect the ocean," said Cousteau, son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau. "My father always said: 'People protect what they love,' and Arnold will help us achieve that goal, in that after seeing the film, audiences too will want to protect the wonders of the sea as much as I do."
Conquistador Entertainment will present the 85-minute doc for the first time at the Cannes film market this May.
Wonders of the Sea is slated for a worldwide release in 2017.
