Netflix is getting into the nature documentary game with “Our Planet,” a new eight-part series from the creators of the BBC’s nature documentary series “Planet Earth” and “Blue Planet.”
The series will launch globally on April 5, 2019, and be narrated by renowned British naturalist Sir David Attenborough, who famously also narrated both original BBC programs.
“‘Our Planet’ will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world,” said Attenborough, whose latest BBC wildlife series, “Dynasties,” is also set to launch in early 2019. “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.”
The series, which was four years in the making, was created in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, and Silverback Films.
The big-budget project was filmed in 50 countries across every continent, from the Arctic wilderness to the jungles of South America. It promises to showcase the planet’s most precious species as well as their fragile habitats using the latest in 4K camera technology.
