BBC America’s “Blue Planet II” Trailer: The Prequel

Some of the most jaw dropping, chill raising, and yes tear inducing, imagery ever shot makes up BBC America’s prequel to its new natural history series Planet Earth: Blue Planet II. A docu-series, that based on the look and sound of it, is not to be missed.

Further enhanced by the music of composer/artists  Hans Zimmer and Radiohead, the five-minute short prequel also forges into new territory as BBCA’s first globally simulcast film.

“Following its debut today during the World Premiere of Planet Earth: Blue Planet II in London, a five-minute prequel for the landmark series has become the BBC’s first ever natural history global simulcast – with 75 countries around the world transmitting it on TV at midday (BST) today including on BBC AMERICA in the U.S., China, India, Canada, Singapore, Sweden, Poland and South Africa.

The exclusive curtain-raiser for the seven-part series features a Hans Zimmer and Radiohead musical collaboration, titled (ocean) bloom, which is a fusion of Planet Earth: Blue Planet II’s main theme with a reimagined version of “Bloom,” a song Thom Yorke was prophetically inspired to write having watched 2001’s The Blue Planet.

The short film is narrated by series presenter Sir David Attenborough, and features an array of some of the most awe-inspiring shots and highlights from the new series, as well as several exclusive scenes that will not feature in any of the seven episodes which are set to air early 2018 on BBC America.”

 

Get ready to be inspired, if not impressed.

 

 

If nothing else inspires you to work towards saving this planet, perhaps Blue Planet II will. The full series coming to our shores in 2018 only on BBC America. To learn more about the making of the upcoming sequel to the groundbreaking 2001 Blue Planet series see BBC.com/news.
