Coming soon? Terri Irwin is reportedly sitting on a treasure trove of VHS tapes and is in talks with Netflix to create a special tribute to celebrate her family’s legacy
‘Terri’s one step ahead of the game, as usual, and is pulling it all together for a really lush documentary. TV networks would write blank cheques for some of the stuff she has!’ a source said.
‘She’s been documenting almost every moment of [her children] Bindi and Robert’s lives. She’ll likely have the birthing suite, too, when Bindi has her baby!’
The source went on to say that Terri often looks back on the family videos, as they are some of the last memories she has preserved of her late husband, Steve.

‘She loves how some big stars have had their own stories produced for Netflix and would like to give her story the same treatment – she knows it’s what fans would enjoy,’ they added.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Australia Zoo for comment.
Steve Irwin died on September 4, 2006, while filming a wildlife documentary in Batt Reef, Queensland.

In 2006, there was a TV movie about Steve’s death, titled Steve Irwin: He Changed Our World, and later another TV movie in 2018, titled The Steve Irwin Story.
The family have remained in the spotlight, and regularly appear on breakfast shows to discuss Australia Zoo and animal conservation.
Robert Irwin also took over from his famous father by appearing on popular American talk shows as young as 13.

Last year Australia Zoo celebrated its 50th anniversary, with Bindi also releasing a book honouring her late conservationist father.
She shared the exciting news with her Instagram followers, saying the publication, titled Creating a Conservation Legacy, took ‘almost five years’ to complete.
Bindi, who is expecting her first child with husband Chandler Powell in March, said the book was a compilation of old pictures and journal entries.
‘Looking through countless archives, Dad’s old journals, Australia Zoo booklets and photographs tucked away in office corners. It’s finally here,’ Bindi captioned a gallery of family photos on Instagram.
