Apple TV+ has unveiled details of the first immersive originals that will appear on Apple Vision Pro.
The shows will become available in the Apple TV app on Apple Vision Pro when it launches on Feb. 2. Apple Immersive Video “transports viewers to the centre of a story with 180-degree 3D 8K recordings captured with Spatial Audio.”
The series and films include “Prehistoric Planet Immersive,” a new short film and entertainment experience inspired by Apple Original series “Prehistoric Planet” that will “transport viewers 70 million years in the past to put the viewer right in the middle of the action”; and, “Adventure,” a new series taking users to the most remote places on earth to stand beside extreme athletes as they take on “awe-inspiring challenges.”
“Ever since Apple introduced me to this new technology, I’ve been intrigued with the opportunity to explore storytelling using these innovative immersive tools,” said executive producer and filmmaker Jon Favreau. “I’m especially proud to be featured in the launch of this groundbreaking product.”
Apple Vision Pro users can also access “Alicia Keys: Rehearsal Room,” an intimate short film offering a rare glimpse into the Grammy winner’s creative process; and “Wild Life,” a vibrant series that brings viewers up close and personal with some of the most charismatic creatures on the planet, available in the Apple TV app.
“Alicia Keys: Rehearsal Room”
“Alicia Keys: Rehearsal Room” is an intimate, short film that offers viewers a rare glimpse into the Grammy winner’s creative process, including a rehearsal session featuring renditions of her hits “No One,” “If I Ain’t Got You” and “You Don’t Know My Name.”
Immerse yourself in the world of adventure like never before. Join pioneering athletes as they face extraordinary challenges in some of the world’s most spectacular locations. Hailing from Atlantic Productions and produced by Apple Immersive Video, the first episode, titled “Highlining,” will offer an escape into thin air with highliner Faith Dickey as she takes on her highest challenge yet: a daring traverse 3,000 feet above Norway’s breathtaking fjords.
Get up close and personal with some of the most charismatic creatures on the planet — and uncover what makes them unique with the experts who know them best. The first episode brings viewers into the world’s largest rhino sanctuary where a former police captain has dedicated her life to rescuing, raising and rewilding these gentle giants.
“Prehistoric Planet Immersive”
Inspired by the award-winning Apple Original docuseries from Favreau and the producers of Planet Earth, “Prehistoric Planet Immersive” is a new film that whisks viewers along a rugged ocean coast where a pterosaur colony settles in for an afternoon nap — one that proves to be anything but restful. Viewers will transport into the daily lives of dinosaurs, experiencing T-Rex teens crashing a quiet colony of pterosaurs on the beach until mama shows up to break up their party, and an intense battle between raptors and a pride of Triceratops in the forest.
