The BBC Studios Natural History Unit series Planet Earth III has debuted its worldwide first look extended trailer. The trailer is accompanied by a song, created and performed by composer Hans Zimmer, singer-songwriter RAYE, and band Bastille, in collaboration with composer collective Bleeding Fingers Music.
Mike Gunton, Executive Producer, Planet Earth III, added: “The soundscape is the secret sauce of a great wildlife series and there is no-one better to deliver this than our long-term collaborator Hans and his team- but what makes this extraordinary musical project exciting for me is the new ingredient provided by Raye and Bastille. This creative combination is unprecedented, and the results are jaw-droppingly good!”
Seven years after Planet Earth II, Planet Earth III will feature never-seen-before behaviour, and dive deep into the stories and animal characters which reflect the new challenges that wildlife faces in our modern, crowded world. The series will also highlight the growing need to preserve and restore nature. In the final episode viewers will meet some of the dedicated ‘heroes’ across the globe who put their lives on the line to protect the wildlife and the critically important ecosystems of Planet Earth.
The eight-episode series is narrated by Sir David Attenborough and produced by BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit, the makers of Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II.
