The latest trailer for David Attenborough's new documentary on Netflix is spectacular

The documentary king returns on 5 April

We're fairly certain that April is going to be the greatest month of the year.

Aside from Game of Thrones Season 8, the season finale of Derry Girls, and Avengers: Endgame being released, there's the small matter of a new David Attenborough documentary on Netflix.

Yep, the excitement levels are about to go through the roof!

As you may know, Our Planet will be released on 5 April and if the latest footage is anything to go by, documentary lovers are in for a treat.

From the creator of Planet Earth, the eight-part series features never-before-seen footage of wildlife and their habitats — while also revealing why the natural world matters to us all and what steps must be taken to preserve it.

If that's not enough to get you excited, the series will also be accompanied by some behind-the-scenes content which will launch simultaneously on Netflix.

The ambitious four-year project has been filmed in 50 countries across all the continents of the world, with over 600 crew members.

The series focuses on the remarkable diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

In the first episode, viewers will travel from the Brazilian rainforest to Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, discovering how each fragile habitat is connected and why they are all essential for life to thrive on this planet.

Subsequent episodes capture Earth’s key biomes, or habitats: the icy frozen worlds, jungles, coastal seas, deserts and grasslands, high seas, freshwater regions and forests.

Thanks to an expert team that includes some of the world’s best wildlife cinematographers, researchers and scientists — and the latest in 4K camera technology — we're promised that each episode will feature stunning sequences that have never been filmed before.

Take a look at what's in store.
