This Wednesday, April 22 we will celebrate one of the most memorable Earth Day’s in our collective history. As part of this important moment, we are pleased to share a new clip, entitled “Time is Precious,” (VIEW CLIP HERE) from the Apple TV+ new original short Here We Are: Notes For Living on Planet Earth.
A meaningful reminder of what we all have in common and the importance of reinforcing our responsibility to our planet and to each other, the film is a touchstone for how we can all make the world a better place. As narrated in the film by Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep, ”there is so much more for you to learn about planet Earth. Make sure you look after it, as it’s all we’ve got.”
We are hopeful you can include mention of this project and this clip in any Earth Day roundups you might be planning. If you have any questions or need further information or assets, please reach out to us. We appreciate your support and coverage of “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth.”
Lending their voices to the animated Earth Day short film are Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning Meryl Streep, Emmy Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated Chris O’Dowd (“Girls,” “State of the Union”), SAG Award nominee and Critics’ Choice Award-winning Jacob Tremblay (“Room,” “Wonder”) and Oscar nominee Ruth Negga (“Loving,” “Ad Astra”).
This captivating animated film, based on the No. 1 New York Times Bestseller and 2017’s No. 1 TIME Best Book of the Year, follows a precocious 7-year-old (voiced by Tremblay) who, over the course of Earth Day, learns about the wonders of the planet from his parents (voiced by O’Dowd and Negga) — and from a mysterious exhibit at the aptly titled Museum of Everything. The insightful and poignant short film is narrated by Streep.
From the multi-BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning, Oscar-nominated independent animation studio, Studio AKA, the 36-minute film is written by BAFTA Award-winning Philip Hunt (“Ah Pook is Here,” “Lost and Found”) and Academy Award-winning Luke Matheny (“God of Love,” “Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street,” “Ghostwriter”); directed by Hunt, and executive produced by Academy Award-nominated and BAFTA Award-winning Sue Goffe (“A Morning Stroll,” “Varmints,” “Lost and Found,” “Hey Duggee”), Hunt and renowned author Oliver Jeffers (“Here We Are,” “Lost and Found,” “The Day the Crayons Quit”). Alex Somers (“How to Train Your Dragon,” “Captain Fantastic”) is the music composer.
