Stunning, absolutely stunning

A brand new natural history series by world-renowned documentarian and broadcaster David Attenborough, Our Planet, is coming soon to Netflix and the first trailer is jaw-dropping.

The documentary will premiere on Netflix on 5 April 2019 and it’s going to be an eight-part series showcasing the planet’s most precious species and fragile habitats, revealing amazing sights on Earth in ways they’ve never been seen before.

Filmed with the latest in 4k camera technology, the groundbreaking four-year project has been shot in 50 countries across all the continents of the world.

The director of Our Planet, Alastair Fothergill, was also the creator of the critically-acclaimed Planet Earth and Blue Planet series.

The WWF, meanwhile, the world’s leading conservation organisation, have also been heavily involved in the production of the new series.

With over 600 members of their crew capturing more than 3,500 filming days, Our Planet will focus on the breadth of the 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.

Speaking at WWF’s State of the Planet Address event in London, David Attenborough said: “Our Planet will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world.

“Today we have become the greatest threat to the health of our home but there’s still time for us to address the challenges we’ve created, if we act now. We need the world to pay attention. Our Planet brings together some of the world’s best filmmakers and conservationists and I’m delighted to help bring this important story to millions of people worldwide.”

The eight-part series will launch globally on Netflix on 5 April 2019.

We can’t wait.
