He won't quit! And thank god for that. David Attenborough, world's purest old cis man, is returning from his last rather dark television bout for a decidedly more joyful one with Netflix entitled Life in Color with David Attenborough, and it's out sooner than you think.
Which is to say, it's out April 22, 2021, which also happens to be Earth Day. The series will follow 94-year-old Attenborough, as he travels the world to explore how animals use colour to their advantage. He will traverser the humid, vibrant rainforests of Costa Rica to the cold, snowy Scottish Highlands in pursuit of all the different colourful species.
Our pure boi will explore things like how peacocks' bold tails attract mates, why some fish change colour when they are under threat to protecc themselves, and all of the creatures that use colour in ways the human eye cannot detect, through revolutionary camera technology which was created specifically for this project, because of course it was.
The camera technology will be used throughout the series to help viewers grasp the relationship the planet's species has with colour, so prepare yourself for some more jaw-dropping visuals from Attenborough and his camera team. Remember the lizard chase scene in Planet Earth II? Just as we thought things couldn't possibly get more epic in the realm of a 94-year-old talking about nature.
"Over the decades, film has made extraordinary advances, from black and white to color, and high definition to even ultra-high definition. But we have always known there is another world of color, one that only animals can see. For Life in Color, we developed new technology to provide a window into these invisible worlds. It has allowed us to unlock some of the mysteries of nature and to share these with our audience for the first time," Attenborough has said on the project.
Life in Color, is produced by Humble Bee Films and SeaLight Pictures in association with the BBC, and will premiere on Netflix on April 22. Watch the trailer, below.
