NETFLIX REVEALS FIRST LOOK AT NEW NATURAL HISTORY SERIES "OUR PLANET"

The eight-part series will be narrated by Sir David Attenborough Our Planet launches globally on Netflix on April 5, 2019

(London, Nov. 8, 2018) Netflix today revealed the teaser and first look images of the new original documentary series Our Planet, which will launch globally on Netflix on April 5, 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 organization.

The groundbreaking, 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 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.

World-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough will voice the series in English-language territories. Local narrators will be announced in the new year.

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."

The partnership with WWF enables the series to be part of a wider global project which will help inspire people around the world to discover why our natural world matters. From a wealth of online resources to educational programs for schools, the project will go beyond just showcasing the wonders of our planet to reveal what we must do now to ensure people and nature can thrive.

Alastair Fothergill, Director at Silverback, said: "Our Planet is our most ambitious endeavor to date, we hope it will inspire and delight hundreds of millions of people across the world so they can understand our planet, and the environmental threat it faces, as never before. The crew have ventured to all corners of the globe to capture breathtaking natural history sequences and using the latest filming technology to bring these never-filmed-before moments into people's homes. By launching on Netflix at the same time all over the world, this series will enable people to connect to and understand the shared responsibility we all have. We are genuinely all in this together."

Lisa Nishimura, Vice President of Netflix Original Documentaries, said: "Our Planet is a phenomenal achievement by Alastair Fothergill, Keith Scholey and all at Silverback Productions, and a spectacular voyage of discovery around the world. We are delighted that Sir David Attenborough will voice the series and that Netflix, as a global platform, is able to bring this vital and magical series to an audience of over 190 countries worldwide next year."

Colin Butfield, Executive Director of WWF-UK and Executive Producer of Our Planet, said: "We're the first generation to know the full impact of what we're doing to our planet, and the last that has the chance to do anything about it. We're at a unique moment in our history where we have the chance to put things right and start on the path towards a better future. Our Planet will showcase the wonders of our world at the critical time when we need global action to protect it."
