Michelle Dockery to Read Poetry for Disney TV Show
Michelle Dockery has signed up to recite poetry for the Disney Junior UK series, A Poem Is.
Michelle and other stars will read selected works from poets such as Clement Clarke Moore, Eliza Lee Follen and William Wise.
Each episode will feature animation from Disney's vaults, including classic scenes from much-loved films like Lady and the Tramp, Dumbo, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast.
Disney Junior boss Boel Ferguson says, "Combining timeless poetry with imagery from some of Disney's most beloved animations is a fantastic way for young children and their parents to enjoy the beauty of a poem well read."
The first episode airs on 30 April to coincide with National Poetry Month.
