Earth: One Amazing Day, the follow-up to BBC Earth Films’ Earth: The Movie, makes its world premiere in Beijing today (Aug. 1).
The feature documents one day on Earth and celebrates the daily dramas that occur in the natural world. The film takes audiences around continents, through oceans and across skies as it tracks the sun’s journey in the space of one day.
Earth: One Amazing Day took more than four years to plan and three years to make. The spinoff comes one decade after the original film from 2007, Earth: The Movie, which serves as the second highest grossing nature documentary released to date, having grossed US$109 million worldwide.
A BBC Earth Films and Shanghai Media Group (SMG) Pictures co-production, the Mandarin language release is narrated by actor Jackie Chan, co-directed by Lixin Fan. This feature film is the first to be produced under the UK-China copro treaty.
The Mandarin version of the film will open in China on Aug. 11.
The English version of the film is narrated by Academy Award winning actor and environmentalist Robert Redford. It is directed by Peter Webber and Richard Dale leads the production team.
Earth: One Amazing Day will premiere in the U.S. in autumn 2017
