If Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II left you with an unquenchable David Attenborough-based thirst, we have some splendid news for you: There’s a whole lot more Attenborough on the way.
Not only do we have his upcoming BBC doc Dynasties to look forward to, but now we also have an announcement from Netflix: the legendary British presenter will be hosting an eight-part natural history series, Our Planet, which is coming to the streaming service in Spring 2019.
Here’s the very slick-looking, animal-packed teaser:
The series has been four years in the making, with a 600-strong crew filming in 50 different countries, according to a press release sent to Mashable. It will focus on showing “the planet’s most precious species and fragile habitats”.
“Our Planet will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world,” said Attenborough at a recent event in London.
“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.”
Our Planet comes to Netflix globally on 5th Apr., 2019.
