This is the trailer for Blue Planet II, a sequel to the BBC's 2001 Blue Planet. The seven part series will still be narrated by David Attenborough (thank God) and scored by Hans Zimmer, who collaborated with Radiohead for the track for this trailer. FUN FACTS:

In September 2017, the BBC announced that the English rock band Radiohead had collaborated with Zimmer to record a new version of "Bloom", a song from their 2011 album The King of Limbs. The new track, "(ocean) Bloom", was recorded alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra. In a press release, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke said: "'Bloom' was inspired by the original Blue Planet series so it's great to be able to come full circle with the song."

The series will incorporate new science and technology unavailable in 2001 for the most stunning views of our planet's oceans to date. It will also "devote a lot of time to exploring climate change and the pollution that's filling up the sea at a breakneck pace." Well that's depressing. When reached for comment about the series, Ariel said she made the right decision giving up her fin for legs and life on land because all her friends are dead.

Keep going for the trailer.

Thanks to becca and n0nentity, who agree it's only a matter of time until the oceans aren't even blue anymore.

    These are always so incredible. I like to play a game with the kiddo and ask "How do you think people would have reacted if you could show them this video in 1800 or another time?" and then we try and imagine how that would roll out.

    I'm happy to report that "irina abramovich", aka "the afterooster chick", has likely passed on. Left us in this mortal coil. Passed through a door into a new dimension. Dead.Surely if there were still breath in her lungs, she would be logging in to report that the blue whale in the thumb from this post is afterooster's wife.Her strange star burned bright and mercifully short here at geekologie. She raised more questions than she answered, but ultimately none of those questions were questions anybody cared about.We hardly knew ye.

    Amen.
