Apple TV+ has just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming animated film “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth”, and it’s full of wonder and fascination.
The new film is based on the New York Times bestseller by Oliver Jeffers, which has sold more than a million copies to date.
The story follows a precocious 7-year-old (voiced by B.C. native Jacob Tremblay) who, over the course of Earth Day, learns about the wonders of the planet from his parents (voiced by Chris O’Dowd and Ruth Negga) — and from a mysterious exhibit at the aptly titled Museum of Everything. Meryl Street serves as narrator.
