Apple TV+ has today debuted the first trailer for its eagerly awaited natural history series “Prehistoric Planet”. Executive produced by Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, and the BBC Studios Natural History Unit (“Planet Earth”), the groundbreaking series narrated by Sir David Attenborough over the course of five episodes transports viewers 66 million years into the past to discover our world – and the dinosaurs that once inhabited it – all in staggering detail and set to an original score by multiple Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer.
The series is produced by the world-renowned team at the BBC Studios Natural History Unit, supported by the photorealistic visual effects of MPC (The Lion King, The Jungle Book). “Prehistoric Planet” presents little-known and astonishing facts about dinosaur life set against the backdrop of the environments of Cretaceous times, including coasts, deserts, freshwater, ice worlds and forests. From revealing eye-opening parenting techniques of Tyrannosaurus rex to exploring the mysterious depths of the oceans and the deadly dangers in the sky, “Prehistoric Planet” brings Earth’s history to life like never before.
This five-night event will commence on Apple TV+ on Monday, May 23 with a brand new episode rolling out every 24 hours through to Friday, May 27. In anticipation of the series premiere, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer.
