Storyline

Nearly a generation after the acclaimed Blue Planet documentary was released, David Attenborough returns to narrate this groundbreaking sequel/reboot. Blue Planet ll focuses more heavily on mankind's influence on the world's oceans through both global pollution and climate change. This series features a variety of revolutionary segments never before seen in a video documentary, including: cuttlefish that hypnotize crabs to stun them, giant trevally that leap out of the water to catch low flying birds, and newly discovered dancing yeti crabs. Written by Jakob E. Ferguson

A great reminding that we all live because of the oceans.
31 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

The visuals are spectacular. Very inspiring documentary.Makes you want to leave everything and embrace the beauty of the ocean. Let's hope it will raise awareness about climate change and how much it affects the oceans because oceans maintain life on the Planet, oceans are the Guardians of the Planet. Hats-off to the team who worked so much on this!
