Planet Earth III is set to take viewers on an awe-inspiring journey into the heart of nature, revealing its grandeur and the challenges it faces.


Global (01 October 2023) – In the world of nature documentaries, one name stands out above all others: Planet Earth. Since its inception in 2001 with “The Blue Planet,” this BBC franchise has continued to captivate audiences worldwide with its breathtaking cinematography and awe-inspiring stories of our planet’s wildlife.

Now, with the release of the first look video for “Planet Earth III,” the world is once again buzzing with excitement and anticipation.

The trailer for “Planet Earth III” has burst onto screens, and it is nothing short of magnificent. As you watch the footage, you are transported to some of the most remote and astonishing corners of the Earth. It’s a visual feast that leaves you in awe of the natural world. What sets this trailer apart is not just its stunning visuals but also the incredible musical composition that accompanies it. Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer, Mercury Prize Award-nominated singer-songwriter RAYE, and Brit-winning and Grammy-nominated band Bastille have joined forces with the Emmy and BAFTA-winning composer collective Bleeding Fingers Music to create a score that elevates the viewing experience to a whole new level. The music resonates with the grandeur of our planet and the majesty of the creatures that call it home.

The extended trailer provides a tantalizing glimpse of the extraordinary animals from around the globe that will be featured in the series. From a leopard leaping an astounding 30 feet in Southern Africa to a wild rhino casually strolling through the busy streets of a Nepalese town, the footage captures moments of raw beauty and astonishing natural behaviour.

One of the most exciting aspects of “Planet Earth III” is its commitment to not just celebrating the wonders of the natural world but also shedding light on the challenges and crises faced by these creatures. The trailer hints at the ecological issues that will be explored, reminding us of the urgent need to protect our planet and its biodiversity.

“Planet Earth” is a franchise that has become synonymous with excellence in nature filmmaking. The first instalment in 2006 set a new standard for quality and detail, prompting many to upgrade their televisions to high-definition models just to fully appreciate its visuals. “Planet Earth II” in 2016 not only met but exceeded the high expectations set by its predecessor. Now, as we eagerly await the release of the third instalment, the anticipation is sky-high.

“Planet Earth III” promises to continue the tradition of exploring the planet’s incredible stories and the diverse array of life that inhabits it. It will delve even deeper, capturing never-before-seen behaviours and shedding light on the new and ongoing challenges faced by wildlife in our modern, crowded world. As habitats shrink and urban sprawl encroaches on natural spaces, the series will showcase the resilience and adaptability of the creatures struggling to survive.

Narrating this extraordinary eight-episode series is the incomparable Sir David Attenborough, whose voice has become synonymous with the “Planet Earth” franchise. His presence adds an unmatched gravitas to the storytelling, and his passion for the natural world shines through in every word.

Mike Gunton, the executive producer of “Planet Earth III,” expresses the sentiment shared by many: “Planet Earth wouldn’t be Planet Earth without David.” Attenborough’s involvement in the series ensures that it stays true to its roots while exploring new perspectives and bringing extraordinary wonders to the screen.

As we await the release date of “Planet Earth III,” one thing is certain: this series will once again captivate and inspire audiences around the world. It will remind us of the beauty and fragility of our planet and the importance of preserving its wonders for future generations.
