It has been announced that Sir David Attenborough’s upcoming feature documentary, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, will premiere in cinemas across the globe on Monday 28th September 2020. The film, which serves as Attenborough’s witness statement for the natural world, will debut in select cinemas across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland before being released widely to cinemas in those territories.

Audiences watching Attenborough’s story on the big screen will have the unique chance to watch an exclusive conversation between Sir David Attenborough and Sir Michael Palin – this special content is only available in cinemas. The legendary broadcasters share a passion for exploring our vast planet and a desire to protect it for future generations.

In his 94 years, Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. Now, for the first time he reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime as a naturalist and the devastating changes he has seen.

Honest, revealing and urgent, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet is a powerful first-hand account of humanity’s impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations.

The film has been created by award-winning natural history filmmakers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF. The film will launch on Netflix globally in the Northern Hemisphere autumn / Southern Hemisphere spring.

Keith Scholey, co-founder of Silverback Films and director of the film, commented, “Recently, all of us have experienced the impacts of COVID-19 – a devastating consequence of our broken relationship with the natural world. As we rebuild from the pandemic, Sir David’s reflections and messages of hope feel particularly timely and relevant. He not only addresses why we must urgently mend our relationship with nature, but also offers solutions to ensuring a safe and sustainable future for our planet and its people. We look forward to bringing Sir David’s story to screens across the globe.”
