Apple TV+ today held the global premiere of the highly anticipated natural history event series, “Prehistoric Planet,” at the AMC Century City IMAX Theatre in Los Angeles.
Attendees at the red carpet premiere included: executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, showrunner/series producer Tim Walker, lead scientific consultant Dr. Darren Naish, directors and series animation supervisors Adam Valdez and Andrew R. Jones, and score composers Anže Rozman and Kara Talve.
“Prehistoric Planet,” from executive producers Favreau and Gunton and BBC Studios Natural History Unit (“Planet Earth”), and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will transport viewers 66 million years back in time to discover our world — and the dinosaurs that roamed it — all in stunning detail and set to an original score by Hans Zimmer, who has won multiple Academy Awards.
The five-episode groundbreaking series, which will premiere globally on Apple TV+ in an epic weeklong event from Monday, May 23 to Friday, May 27, combines award-winning wildlife filmmaking, the latest paleontology learnings, and cutting-edge technology to reveal the spectacular habitats and inhabitants of ancient Earth for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.
“Prehistoric Planet” is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production for Apple TV+, with MPC’s photorealistic visual effects (“The Lion King,” “The Jungle Book”) applied to concept art by Jellyfish Pictures (“The Book of Boba Fett,” “Spirit: Untamed”). Favreau and Gunton are the executive producers. Zimmer and Andrew Christie wrote the theme for Bleeding Fingers Music. Zimmer, Rozman, and Talve composed the original score for Bleeding Fingers Music.
