Apple today shared the trailer for "Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth," an upcoming Earth Day-themed short film that's set to premiere on Friday, April 17, a few days ahead of Earth Day.


The animated short is based on best-selling children's book of the same name by Oliver Jeffers, and it will be narrated by Meryl Streep.

On the eve of Earth Day, a precocious seven-year-old learns about the wonders of the planet from his parents--and a mysterious exhibit at the aptly titled Museum of Everything. Based on the best-selling children's book by Oliver Jeffers. The all-star voice cast includes Chris O'Dowd, Ruth Negga, Jacob Tremblay, and Meryl Streep.

"Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth," which is aimed at children, joins several existing Apple TV+ shows for kids, including "Ghostwriter," "Helpsters," and "Snoopy in Space."

Feels like bad timing on this one.
With all the kids staying at home, I think it's perfect timing.

In a way, COVID-19 is nature's way of telling us to respect the environment, also reminding us that health matters and how a pandemic outbreak can wreak havoc.

The trailer looks absolutely stunning and I look forward to watching it with my kids.

Oliver Jeffers' work is unmistakeable and more often than not, genius.

This looks beautiful!! Excellent timing too. Apple TV+ needs to generate more attention and hype to their platform. This paints a beautiful picture of how the world is, a nice escape from our miserable quarantine.

Let's look after planet earth..... by soldering all our laptop components together to make it harder to repair, upgrade, and extend the life of our products, so they end up in landfill quicker. Apple makes me want to puke sometimes.
