If you love Blue Planet or Planet Earth and maybe treat David Attenborough as your religion, get stoked because we’re hot on the cusp of Blue Planet II.
It’s been 16 years since the first Blue Planet was released. The new trailer gives a five minute sneak of the show and the soundtrack, which was penned by Hans Zimmer and Radiohead. The best new documentary show no-doubt awaits with those two talents and David Attenborough crooning through the stunning visuals.
The song in the trailer is a reworking of a Radiohead song called “Bloom,” which was re-imagined with Hans Zimmer and now renamed “(ocean) bloom.” Thom Yorke conveniently claims the original song was actually “inspired by the original Blue Planet series so it’s great to be able to come full circle with the song and re-imagine it for this incredible landmark’s sequel.”
