The official trailer for Sir David Attenborough’s new film A Life On Our Planet is here and we can guarantee that it will leave the hairs on the back of your neck on end.
The movie is set to be the iconic 93-year-old presenter’s greatest story yet and sees him announce his own witness statement and vision for the future as he reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime and the devastating changes he has seen.
Not holding back, Sir David reveals some of the biggest challenges facing life on our planet and provides a snapshot of global nature loss in a single lifetime.
But it’s not all doom and gloom, as the celebrated naturalist also provides the key solutions to help save our planet from disaster.
‘I’ve had the most extraordinary life. It’s only now that I appreciate how extraordinary,’ Sir David admits as he kicks off the two-minute teaser.
He continues: ‘The living world is a unique and spectacular marvel, yet the way we humans live on earth is sending it into a decline. Human beings have overrun the world.
‘We’re replacing the wild with the tame. This film is my witness statement and my vision for the future. The story of how we became to make this our greatest mistake and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right.’
‘Our planet is headed for disaster,’ Sir David says frankly. ‘We need to learn to work with nature rather than against it and I’m going to tell you how.’
A Life On Our Planet has been produced by award-winning wildlife film-makers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF.
It will be broadcast in cinemas on Thursday 16 April 2020, live from the world premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall, where viewers will also see Sir David joined live on stage by very special guests for a discussion on some of the most prevalent issues raised in the film.
A Life On Our Planet launches in cinemas on April 16 and will be released globally on Netflix in spring 2020.
