David Attenborough's new Netflix documentary series has left people very emotional
Clear your schedule because it's finally here
Much like a long drama, or a horror film, there's a certain mood that you need to be in to watch a David Attenborough documentary because as we all know, his breathtaking features can hit you hard. Really hard.
Truth be told, we know exactly what to expect.
Breathtaking cinematography? Check. David Attenborough's dulcet tones? Check. The mating rituals of whales, wolves and whatever else is living on this planet? Check. Heartbreak, death, and environmental despair as we are made to stare into the abyss of the destruction we continue to inflict upon our planet? Check.
What makes Our Planet even better than recent series though is that it's the first time that the beloved broadcaster has made a series that's exclusive to Netflix and you know what that means? Binge watch.
Of course, the online streaming giant has had plenty of Attenborough's previous features in their library but Our Planet represents new ground for Netflix and we're delighted to say that it's a massive success.
If you loved the likes of Planet Earth, Planet Earth II, Blue Planet, and Dynasties then you're in for a treat.
Using the latest technology, Our Planet was filmed entirely in Ultra High Definition in over 50 countries. From exotic jungles to the deepest seas, the project took fours to film and the production had over 600 crew members.
As always with Attenborough's work, it has moved plenty of people that have seen it.
One scene in particular absolutely left people in bits.
I'm watching #OurPlanet and I've decided, enough is enough, it's time to put David Attenborough in charge of the World.

What it feels like watching OUR PLANET
Show: Look at this amazing creature, and the amazing surroundings planet earth has made.
Me: Omg it so beautiful.

Me: Nooooooo#ourplanet #netflix

Watching “our planet” on Netflix and it upsets me that us as humans have let the planet continue to deteriorate with global warming effects...to say we are the smartest species we’re really fucking up😔😔

FYI, we're now getting into spoiler territory, so look away now.
We're just going to say four words...walrus and the cliff.
Literally full on sobbed to the walrus moment. This whole docu series is so heart breaking. #OurPlanet I wish as humans we can do more.
