Netflix Has Their Own Nature Series Called OUR PLANET and It Looks Stunning; Watch The Trailer
Netflix is producing their very own nature series called Our Planet, and if you like this kind of stuff, then you’re going to enjoy what this new show has to offer.
The beautifully shot nature documentary will consist of eight episodes and feature Planet Earth narrator David Attenborough as the narrator and guide. The series is said to explore “stunning, never-before-seen habitats,” and also features lots of animals. Here’s the full synopsis:
This eight-part series will explore the unique and precious wonders of our natural world from the creators of the award-winning series Planet Earth. In partnership with World Wildlife Fund, Our Planet combines stunning photography and technology with an unprecedented, never-before-filmed look at the planet’s remaining wilderness areas and their animal inhabitants. 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.
While talking to The Guardian, Attenborough had this to say about the series:
“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.”
Executive producer Colin Butfield added:
“I’ve never seen a natural history series that combines real stuff you’ve never seen before but that always has a really, really great narrative in each episode. It’s not at all preachy, it’s spectacular mass public entertainment, but by the end you are absolutely aware of the challenge of climate change and overfishing and deforestation.”
