Prehistoric Planet: Trailer Talk
Prehistoric Planet: Trailer Talk.
When I was little, I was obsessed with dinosaurs. As well as watching ‘Jurassic Park’ and visiting the dinosaur exhibit at London’s Natural History Museum numerous times, ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ was also consumed.
This was a BBC documentary series that only ran for one season but spawned numerous spin offs revolving around other prehistoric animals. However, while dinosaur research has advanced since then, shows based around dinosaurs that are portrayed in the same tone is scarce.
That is, until the announcement of ‘Prehistoric Planet’.
‘Prehistoric Planet’ is an Apple TV original show that is executive produced by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book), produced by the same team behind the fantastic documentary series ‘Planet Earth and narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
The above information means that the show will surely be fantastic. And it looks great; while some of the CGI is a little clunky, the visuals are a spectacle overall. Plus, with the research scientists have on dinosaurs now, compared to the 90’s, the appearances of the creatures themselves will be different. In ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’, the animals were purely reptilian, replicating that of ‘Jurassic Park’.
But, in the last couple of decades, it’s been discovered that dinosaurs were probably feathered, and had a closer relation to birds than reptiles. It’s a small detail, but one that really shows how different this will be compared to the 90’s show purely because of the information we have now. Plus, ‘Prehistoric Planet’ finally features the unique looking carnivore the Carnosaur!
With the team behind ‘Prehistoric Planet’, it’s sure to be a fantastic show and it’ll be interesting to see just how different the given information and narration will be compared to ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ purely due to the last 20 years of scientific research. I just wish it was available for a wider audience.
‘Prehistoric Planet’ is a five-part series and will be on Apple TV 23rd May 2022.
