Billed as a sequel to the gorgeous and groundbreaking 2006 nature doc “Planet Earth” (Win the special edition here), “Frozen Planet” is coming to BBC shortly and the Discovery Channel this spring.
As you would expect, it looks absolutely amazing – and will take viewers on a seven-part, mind-blowing tour of life in the Arctic and Antarctic. It’s also the last time international viewers will get to hear Sir David Attenborough narrate a film of this magnitude. This is his swan song. Let’s hope Discovery doesn’t decide to stomp all over this man’s exit by replacing him with another Oprah.
Enough words – check out the trailer below. It will make your week. (Editor’s note: Why the BBC decided to upload their official version in non-HD boggles the mind. It’s 2011. There is absolutely no excuse not to have this available in a version befitting the final product. Editor’s note #2: For those wondering what that epic song is, it’s “Heart of Courage” from the band “Two Steps From Hell”. You can score it from iTunes or listen to it on Grooveshark here.)
