MANILA, Philippines – Nature’s finest makes its awe-inspiring debut on Netflix with Our Planet, the streaming giant's newest nature documentary series featuring never-before-seen stunning footage of the most incredible wildlife in their natural habitats, premiering on April 5, 2019.
From the creator of Planet Earth, this 8-part documentary series not only showcases the Earth at its most beautiful and purest state, but also includes planet conservation tips for viewers and behind-the-scenes content.
Narrators for the series include Sir David Attenborough and local narrators in 10 languages, including Spanish language narrators Peneleope Cruz and Salma Hayek for Latin America.
"Being a part of Netflix's Our Planet is an incredible honor. The series is spectacularly beautiful and the message of conservation could not be more timely or important,” said Penélope Cruz.
“I feel very close to everything Our Planet stands for and I'm proud to bring such a powerful piece of work to my home country and audiences around the world."
“Our Planet transcends borders to deliver an inspiring message of wonder, respect and care for our natural world,” said Salma Hayek.
“I’m honored to work with Netflix to help bring the series to those in my home country of Mexico, and to a Spanish-language audience throughout Latin America and the rest of the globe.”
The project took 4 years to finish, filming in 50 countries all over the world with over 600 crew members, focusing on rare species and diverse lands – from the Arctic wilderness, frozen worlds, deep oceans, Africa's landscapes, and to South America's jungles, among many others.
Our Planet is produced by Silverback Films in partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey. – Rappler.com
