Planet Earth has been hailed as one of the greatest nature documentaries ever. Netflix, Silverback Films, and WWF will bring the sequel called Our Planet to life in stunning 4K resolution.

Nature documentary series Our Planet will be divided into eight episodes that will all debut in 2019. Silverback Films also created Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, and Blue Planet for BBC.

Netflix describes Our Planet;
- "The ambitious four year project – the largest of its kind ever attempted – will take viewers into never-before-filmed wilderness areas from the ice caps and deep ocean to deserts and remote forests, introducing them to the most precious species and places that must withstand the impact of humanity so generations to come can enjoy the bounties of the natural world. Using the latest in 4K camera technology, the series and a range of specially produced storytelling for multi-media platforms will bring millions of people into intimate contact with some of the world’s rarest animals and most precious natural habitats."

Netflix has been a pioneer in bringing 4K to the masses. It started streaming its own original productions in 4K one year ago this month. The latest show to debut in 4K was Daredevil and later this year Netflix will start streaming in 4K HDR, setting the stage for an amazing experience when Our Planet hits Netflix in four years.

Alastair Fothergill, Executive Producer Silverback Films says;
- “Our Planet is going to raise the bar for natural history landmarks. We will reveal the most amazing sights on Earth and show them in ways they have never been seen before. Partnering with Netflix and WWF gives us the ability to reach and enthuse global audiences with the wonder and importance of the natural world.”
