Back in 2010, Ellen had leant her voice for a documentary called NAYA: Legend of the Golden Dolphin. A beautiful documentary about the dolphins around the world.
Ellen will be the voice of the Dusky Dolphins of New Zealand, the most acrobatic dolphins on Earth, and also tells the story of the Hectors Dolphins, an endangered species.
The release date is set for January 1, 2015.
NAYA: Legend of the Golden Dolphin is an amazing, awe-inspiring, all-ages, true-life documentary unfolding a story of legendary proportions. Experience an adventure like no other on the planet — a spectacular journey under the sea capturing the incredible beauty and staggering you-are-there drama of the dolphins…discover their power, their message to humanity, and the importance of their survival in this larger than life adventure through the oceans of South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, Mozambique, Australia, Bimini, Hawaii & in the Amazon River of Brazil.

In 2011, Planned Parenthood Action Fund launched Women Are Watching to put lawmakers and politicians on notice — and we delivered a message loud and clear with the historic gender gap leading to President Obama’s victory, along with the defeat of anti-women’s health politicians in key races across the country. In 2014 we’re bringing back this campaign with more force than ever. Women and men across the country are standing up to say “enough is enough” to these attacks on women’s health. Together, we will move heaven and earth to elect people who will fight for women and replace those who are passing these restrictions on abortion, birth control, and preventive health care. No matter where you live, you can get involved today to make a real impact on women’s lives in all 50 states.

Freeheld, which is currently filming in the New York area, tells the story of how a lesbian couple fought discrimination more than 10 years ago to extend domestic partner benefits. With same-sex marriage spreading state by state this year, the movie — which stars Julianne Moore and Ellen Page, who is also a producer on the film — might feel like it took place a long time ago.
But Freeheld’s director Peter Sollett, producers, cast, and production staff were recently reminded that while some things have changed for LGBT people, others have not.
In Freeheld — based on Cynthia Wade’s Oscar-winning documentary short from 2007 — Moore plays a New Jersey detective dying of lung cancer who seeks to leave her pension to her partner, played by Page. In one scene, the couple applies for a civil union, and the production needed a building that could pass for a town hall.
Initially, the location scout was told that Salesian High School, a private, all-boys Catholic school in New Rochelle, N.Y., was available for the afternoon the scene was to be filmed. But then higher-up school administrators said no. Michael Shamberg, Freeheld’s producer, told BuzzFeed News that he then appealed to Salesian’s principal, John Flaherty, who told Shamberg to send an email that he could forward to Father John Serio, the school’s president. After doing that, Shamberg never heard back from Serio, and Freeheld shot the scene somewhere else.
“I respect their right to say no,” Shamberg said. “But it’s sad.”
When BuzzFeed News contacted Flaherty by email about the school’s reasoning in not wanting a movie with LGBT content to film there, he wrote: “All are welcomed at Salesian High School. Our School chooses to embrace the social issues such as hunger, homelessness, poverty, and helping the less fortunate.”
When asked in a follow-up email for more specifics, Flaherty responded, “I will let my initial statement stand for itself.”
Ellen responded to the news with this tweet shortly after:
Using religion to justify bigotry makes me sad. Sending my support 2 the LGBT students at the school who I hope r able 2 find acceptance.
