One of the most epic documentary series ever created, BBC Earth’s “Planet Earth II,” is now available to stream on Netflix in the United States. Debuting in November 2016, this six-episode cinematic wonder reflects on our diverse planet and its most fascinating and unusual inhabitants.
Filmed through the efforts of insanely dedicated crews, narrated by David Attenborough, and backed by an original musical score by Hans Zimmer, BBC Earth brought together the most talented people across industries in creating “Planet Earth II.” The series was filmed in the span of four years using cutting-edge camera technologies that did not exist during the creation of the original “Planet Earth.” The result is a one-of-a-kind viewing experience for those that have yet to watch it for the first time. It’s one of the only nature documentaries that I can think of that has close to what would be “spoilers” due to the dramatic, unique scenes that play out in the episodes.
Unfortunately, the episodes playing on Netflix do not include the eye-opening behind-the-scenes segments seen in its original broadcast and feature releases. For now, it may be worth checking out the hard copy versions to watch the additional content.
