Attenborough's 'Planet Earth II' is love letter to the planet

Stop what you are doing and watch the new trailer for the upcoming BBC series right now.

It's been 10 years since "Planet Earth," the breathtakingly beautiful BBC nature documentary narrated by the legendary Sir David Attenborough. Filmed over a period of four years in 64 countries, it was at the time the most expensive and comprehensive nature documentary to date.

Now it's time to brace for the sequel. Coming by the end of November to BBC One, "Planet Earth II" looks like it's going to be utterly stunning. And you don't have to take our word for it -- check out the newly released trailer for yourself.

We don't know a lot about it yet, but we do know it has been in production since at least 2013, when it was announced under the name "One Planet." We also know that "Planet Earth II" going to be a fair bit shorter than "Planet Earth" -- 6 episodes rather than 11.

"A decade on from Sir David Attenborough's Planet Earth, this new series promises to be an extraordinary experience for our audience," said BBC's Charlotte Moore in a February announcement of the new name. "Filmed over three years across the globe with all the very latest technology, the series uncovers stories about the natural world we have simply never been able to witness before."

You can currently watch 2006's "Planet Earth" on Netflix.
