We've got nine long days to wait until the sequel to the BBC's spectacular 2001 nature documentary, Blue Planet, airs on October 29 in the UK. Fortunately, the BBC has blessed us with a second trailer for Planet Earth II, which looks like it will make even the most extravagant Hollywood blockbusters pale in comparison.

In the meantime, David Attenborough and company have focused on a number of other documentaries, but now they're circling back with a sequel to the beloved series that told the story of our world's oceans.
As questionable decisions are made by governments around the world when it comes to ecology and protecting our natural environments, Planet Earth II will arrive just in time to remind us that the world is still a spectacular place, and we should be doing everything we can to help keep it that way.
