To celebrate Earth Day, Apple TV+ is releasing an original animated short film, “Here We Are: Notes For Living on Planet Earth.” A new clip, “Time is Precious,” is available to view online.
“Here We Are: Notes For Living on Planet Earth” will be released on Wednesday, April 22, to coincide with Earth Day. It is narrated by Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep and features the voice talents of Chris O’Dowd from “Girls” and “State of the Union,” Jacob Tremblay from “Room” and “Wonder” and Ruth Negga from “Loving” and “Ad Astra.”.
”There is so much more for you to learn about planet Earth. Make sure you look after it, as it’s all we’ve got,” Streep says in the animated short film.
The film is based on the No. 1 New York Times best seller and 2017 Time Best Book of the Year by Oliver Jeffers. It is about a 7-year-old boy who learns about the wonders of the planet from his parents during Earth Day.
“It’s so gorgeous,” O’Dowd said about the film. “When everything is so hard to explain, here’s a little text book on how the world works.”
“Here We Are: Notes For Living on Planet Earth” is written by BAFTA Award winner Philip Hunt and Academy Award winner Luke Matheny. It was produced at Studio AKA, the Emmy Award winning independent studio, and directed by Hunt. The executive producer is Sue Goffe, an Academy Award nominee and BAFTA Award winner. The music was composed by Alex Somers, who also worked on “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Captain Fantastic.”
