Apple is gearing up to celebrate Earth Day 2020 later this month with an all-new animated film and the greatest actress of her generation, Meryl Streep, has lent her voice to the project as the narrator.
The first trailer for Apple’s Earth Day show, Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth, landed on YouTube this morning and it looks like it will be something kids and adults fall in love with. The only thing more soothing in the trailer than Meryl’s voice is the cozy animation style that strikes a balance between being super detailed and approachable at the same time.
Check it out:
The film follows a young boy who learns about the wonders of the planet through his parents over the course of Earth Day. His journey also includes a trip to a mysterious exhibit at the Museum of Everything.
Here We Are is adapted from the best-selling children’s book by Oliver Jeffers. The roster also includes vocal performances by Chris O’Dowd from The IT Crowd, Jacob Tremblay, and Ruth Negga. Music for the film was composed by Alex Somers of How to Train Your Dragon-fame.
The 36-minute long film was animated by Oscar-nominated independent animation studio, Studio AKA. Earth Day 2020 is held on April 22 every year but Apple’s animated movie will be out a week before then on April 17.
