The original Planet Earth documentary series was released ten years ago already, and now a sequel has been announced by the BBC. They have not yet shared a release date, but the trailer is already available for viewing.
It has been confirmed that David Attenborough will once again narrate the series. The project is a co-production of the BBC, BBC America, ZDF in Germany, and France Televisions in France, and has already been picked up by Sweden’s SVT, Denmark’s DR, and Italy’s Mediaset. The first Planet Earth series ended up being sold to 230 different territories.
Executive producer of the series, Mike Gunton, released a statement about the project which explores “the characteristics of Earth’s most iconic habitats and the extraordinary ways animals survive within them.”
“Ten years after ‘Planet Earth’ first brought the wonders of the natural world to viewers in HD, ‘Planet Earth II’ is another game-changer. Shot in UHD, the epic scale and ambition of this series is second to none. It will be a truly immersive experience, providing audiences with a unique perspective on the most extraordinary places and animals on our planet.”
