Playing With Sharks: The Valerie Taylor Story is a new documentary coming to Disney+ as part of Shark Week.

The film explores the life of scuba diver Valerie Taylor and brings her role of an activist of sharks to the forefront of the film. This isn’t a typical documentary, but instead Taylor provides years of actual achieved footage from her adventures and encounters to help reinforce her message.

Part of the documentary dives into her work on the film Jaws. Taylor and her husband both helped on this film and clearly weren’t aware of how the film would be received by the audience. Taylor spent a long time in interviews afterwards trying to help change the public’s mind but it seems that her swimming with sharks is really what helps change opinions about them.

Whoever watches the documentary will hopefully gain a better understanding fo sharks or as Taylor states, “Nature’s perfect creatures.”

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
