10 years later, BBC comes back with Planet Earth 2; its one of the most expensive wildlife documentaries ever made, and and it does look amazing.
In 2006, BBC had released their ‘Planet Earth’ documentary which attracted a massive audience of half a billion worldwide (besides walking away with multiple awards).
A decade later, BBC is back with the sequel, Planet Earth 2, with Sir David Attenborough as the narrator. The filmmakers have indeed gone the distance this time to ensure that the end result is top class.
Sir David praised the corporation for their efforts, “The moment comes when the knife hits the bone and you can’t do any more. The effect will be seen on the screen. So I’m just delighted the BBC thinks it’s so important to lavish the amount of care and attention as it would if it were putting on a Shakespeare play.”
- Digital Spy reported that the film crew went on 117 trips to film all the locations over 2089 days of shooting, across 40 countries.
- The original score for the series has been composed by none other than Also Hans Zimmer (music composer of movies like Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight, to name a few.)
- Planet Earth 2 will be the first series to be aired in UHD and HDR. So, better watch it on the biggest TV you can find.
Watch: Planet Earth 2, and the trailer alone, will blow your mind.
