Apple TV+ today hosted the London premiere of the natural history event series “Prehistoric Planet,” from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, at the BFI IMAX in London.
Narrator Sir David Attenborough was in attendance along with executive producer Gunton, series producer Tim Walker and lead scientific consultant Dr. Darren Naish.
“I am delighted to have worked on this series which brings the last great dinosaur era to life in astonishing detail,” said Attenborough in an Apple press release. “Dinosaurs have held a lifelong fascination for me and I hope when watching this series families will be completely immersed in the magic and wonder of this world and that it sparks an equal fascination in them.”
