World-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough will serve as the voice of upcoming Netflix original documentary series Our Planet, which will premiere on Netflix on 5th April 2019. The ambitious series has been created in collaboration with Silverback Films, whose director Alastair Fothergill was the creator of the critically acclaimed original Planet Earth and Blue Planet series, and WWF, the world's leading conservation organisation.
The ground-breaking, eight-part series will showcase the planet's most precious species and fragile habitats, revealing amazing sights on Earth in ways they've never been seen using the latest in 4k camera technology.
The ambitious four-year project has been filmed in 50 countries across all the continents of the world, with over 600 members of crew capturing more than three and a half thousand filming days, and 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, Sir 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." See the teaser at the link.
