The latest trailer for David Attenborough's new documentary Seven Worlds, One Planet has been released - and it looks simply sensational.

The doc focuses on each of the seven continents and will highlight each continent's distinct terrain, climate and wild life.

Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52

According to the synopsis, the series will take us "from the colourful paradise of South America to the scorching heat of Africa.

"Seven Worlds, One Planet showcases the true character of each continent in turn and reveals just how it has shaped all life there".

The BBC also added that the highly-anticipated series will feature "remarkable, new animal behaviour from all the continents including the baking plains of Africa and the frozen waters off Antarctica."

Yeah, we're sold.

In the newly-released minute-long trailer, David's dulcet tones can be heard over a cover of the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams while an array of incredibly cool shots of the continents' contrasting wild life, fauna and flora flash up.

In between the dramatic music, David says: "Seven extraordinary continents. Each one full of life. Seven Worlds, One Planet. There's no place like Earth."

There's no official release date for the series yet, but it is expected to come out this side of Christmas.

The trailer comes less than two weeks after news that David is working on a new documentary called Life In Colour.

It is the latest doc from the 93-year-old natural history legend, and it will explore the different ways animals and insects use colour in their lives.

The three-part BBC series, which is being produced in collaboration with Netflix, is being filmed with specially-designed cameras which will provide access to colours normally invisible to the human eye.

Attenborough and the team will then consider, with the help of this new technology, the ways animals use the colour spectrum to interact.

It is will be the first time the BBC and Netflix have collaborated on a natural history production, while Australia's Channel 9 is also involved.

While Life In Colour is expected to air on BBC Two in the UK and Ireland and Channel 9 in Aus in 2021, Netflix will retain global rights.

The groundbreaking new documentary will go out when the national treasure is 95-years-old.
