Here’s everything you need to know about the prehistoric planet.

Why is?

Prehistoric Planet is a natural history documentary about dinosaurs in the Cretaceous period. Each episode focuses on a different habitat: coastal areas, deserts, freshwater environments, ice worlds, and forests.

The series uses photorealistic CGI, similar to 2019’s remake of The Lion King, based on the latest scientific evidence available. For example, Prehistoric Planet shows a feathered baby Tyrannosaurus Rex, which scientific communities have concluded in recent years is likely to be the case.

Who was involved in the series?

David Attenborough is the voice actor for the series, as he has on a number of other natural history and wildlife documentaries. Prehistoric Planet is his second dinosaur-themed series this year, following Easter’s Dinosaurs: The Final Day, which focused on the Tanis Fossil Graveyard and the dinosaur extinction.

Jon Favreau (The Mandalorian, The Lion King) served as Executive Producer on the series and contributed as someone heavily involved in advances in photorealistic CGI.

Mike Gunton, a producer with the BBC Natural History Unit, was also executive producer of this series. Gunton has worked on a number of similar documentaries, from The Green Planet to Dynasties to Planet Earth II.

A number of paleontologists and scientific illustrators such as Darren Naish (Primeval), Stephen Brusatte (Walking With Dinosaurs) and Gabriel Ugueto (Extinct) have been involved with the series as consultants to ensure scientific rigor. Hans Zimmer (Inception) provided the score.

How many episodes does Prehistoric Planet have?

When will the next David Attenborough documentary be out?

Prehistoric Planet is the second of Attenborough’s three major projects this year.

In January, the Attenborough documentary Green Planet – which also boasted new and innovative film techniques – was broadcast on BBC One.

Later this year, Attenborough will return for Planet Earth III as part of the BBC Centenary celebrations. While we haven’t confirmed a specific release date for it yet, it will likely air in or around October when the BBC is 100th anniversary occurs.
