Page 1 of [VIDEO] Prehistoric Planet (Apple TV+)
Prehistoric Planet is an upcoming five-part nature documentary television series about dinosaurs that will premiere on Apple TV+ as a special five-night event beginning on May 23, 2022. It is narrated by natural historian David Attenborough and produced by the BBC Studios Natural History Unit. The documentary follows dinosaurs recreated with computer-generated imagery living around the globe in the Late Cretaceous period, 66 million years ago. It is the first major dinosaur-focused documentary series produced by the BBC since Planet Dinosaur in 2011, and the third overall (the first was Walking with Dinosaurs in 1999).
First episode is wonderful. I'm sure there's a fair amount of invention involved in order to tell the kinds of stories you would expect from a BBC/Attenborough documentary, but the photography makes it all feel very natural. And thankfully they didn't Disney-fy it too much, plenty of baby dinosaurs getting munched.
And holy moly did the effects improve since the old Walking with Dinosaurs days.
I refuse to believe that was over 20 years ago.
Shame as a BBC production they aren't showing it, and its on PayTv
