BBC America has announced that Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer’s ‘Bleeding Fingers Music’ has created the score for Planet Earth II! Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, the brand-new season of the epic natural history series will premiere on BBC America on Saturday, February 18 at 9/8c.
Zimmer himself composed the main title theme and produced the remainder of the score with Bleeding Fingers’ composers Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe.
According to Hans Zimmer: “Projects such as Planet Earth II come along once in a lifetime. It is the gold standard of wildlife documentaries and with it comes an enormous creative responsibility. It has been a joy and a privilege to be involved in such a globally important project.”
Mike Gunton, the Executive Producer of Planet Earth II, said: “The team and I have been absolutely enthralled by the wonderful music score that Hans, Jacob and Jasha have written for us — it feels so contemporary and cinematic and provides the final, essential ingredient to the series — one that superbly evokes not only the power and drama of the nature but the humor and charm of the natural world.”Read More
