Prehistoric Planet 2 By Dominic D., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Age 13
Prepare to be wowed by an incredible new documentary mini-series to be released this month. Back for its second season, Prehistoric Planet 2, produced by the world-renowned team from BBC’s Natural History Unit, unveils new species and habitats which occupied ancient Earth 66 million years ago. I was really looking forward to watching this expansive series with its advanced technology and I was not disappointed.
The show takes viewers back millions of years to examine a variety of new species within their unique habitats. Based on new evidence provided by paleontologists and other experts within the field, these filmmakers are able to authentically recreate the Jurassic world and highlight the many interactions within and between species, and show how these magnificent creatures needed to fight so hard for their survival. This impressively animated series brings Earth’s history to life with such extraordinary detail.
Prehistoric Planet 2 is an educational masterpiece! There is so much to appreciate in this series. The CGI is state of the art; the CGI images are, by far, the best I’ve seen. The highly technical scenes are so dramatic and bring great adventure into our homes. Although the information portrayed by the biodiverse species in each episode has great merit from new found evidence by archaeologists, a lot of guesses and inferring goes into the depiction of these creatures. The information about these species makes perfect sense and I was truly inspired by each episode. Narrated by beloved 97-year-old David Attenborough who excels as he explains to viewers the lives of so many unique species. He brings great excitement and emotion to Prehistoric Planet 2. Parents need to be aware that some of the graphic content regarding survival strategies may be too intense for younger viewers.
The message throughout each episode of the show is about understanding the biological dynamics of our ancient Earth. We all find dinosaurs fascinating, but there is much more to be learned about their relationships, adaptations and survival mechanisms. Gaining knowledge about past species not only helps us better understand their existence on Earth and it also helps us build more complete ancestral connections to species living today. Education is priceless!
Prehistoric Planet 2 gets 5 out of 5 stars and I recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. Prehistoric Planet 2 releases on Apple TV+ May 22, 2023
