Sometimes I get this feeling that if our minds accurately assessed the situation we are in, we wouldn't be able to function properly due to the constant state of awe.

The planet we live in, the kind of creature we are and all the others that surround us... yeah, it's too much to process.

Beautiful. I just bought my first 4K blu-ray and it was Planet Earth II. This will likely be my second.

And Bloom is just a masterpiece.

It's not a sequel to Planet Earth. That would be Planet Earth II.
This is Blue Planet II. The sequel to Blue Planet.

Blue Planet was sort of an oceans-only proto-Planet Earth, though. BBC/David Attenborough joints, them all.

Both Planet Earths were excellent so I'm excited to see where this goes.

Is this due this year (around holidays perhaps) or 2018?

Year end like Planet Earth II last year I think

This is Blue Planet II. The sequel to Blue Planet.

Blue Planet was a predecessor to Planet Earth, though. BBC/David Attenborough joints. But Blue Planet is just about oceans.

Both Planet Earths were excellent so I'm excited to see where this goes.

This has me more hyped than any movie trailer I’ve seen this year.

Also, a little morbid, but it made me realise that David Attenborough is gonna be the first celebrity death that really fucks me up. His voice has been a constant presence in my life.

I think so. Judging by what's said in the trailer Don't know what they are thinking with the title of the show

"The prequel" is the title of just this video. The Radiohead recording was made just for this so they aren't just calling it a simple trailer. It's a prequel to the full series.

Cool. These series are always bittersweet for me. They show us so many awesome things in the natural work, but at the same time it's a really horrible feeling knowing that we are fucking it all up.

Edit: Planet Earth II built up singapore's Garden by the bay so much for me that I ended disappointed that the real thing is really just a massive tourist trap.

someone told me that when these programs are broadcast in the USA they replace david attenborough for the VO work. Someone tell me this isn't true.

Looks stunning. Hans Zimmer and Radiohead colab for the intro music, brilliant

I didn't even realise they were doing another Blue Planet. I'm up for anything that team does.

You know for all our aweing at the footage the team has collected and presented to us, Attenburough manages to narrate it in the most calm and soothing voice ever.

I'm so damn hyped for this but, man, I just know it's gonna make me feel like shit with the inevitable "here's how fucked we've made parts of our oceans" section/s. Still can't wait, though, the BBC and Attenborough are a dream team for nature documentaries.

Really excited about this. I have a pretty sizable David Attenborough collection, and I've always been a little disappointed they never bothered to go back to the first Blue Planet series and do a decent remaster of it for Blu-Ray. This takes a lot of the sting away.

Especially looking forward to the inevitable Abyssal/Deep Ocean episode, that one's always a crowd pleaser.

I hope it's better than Planet Earth II, I felt it was good but the episodes were so short and super focused.
