I’m sure we’ve all been watching the most recent series of Planet Earth, entirely captivated by what we’re seeing, getting a glimpse into a world that we barely knew existed. However, you’d be surprised by what else you didn’t know about the national treasure’s newest venture.

1. Ten Years Later…

Yes, ten years between the first series and this one!

It also took nearly six years to film, spread across 40 countries and a film crew of 22. No wonder it took so long to get out!

2. It Had Some High End Musical Production

Hans Zimmer, who you may know as the man who made the music for The Lion King & Gladiator, also produced the music for Planet Earth II.

I suppose when the visuals are that good, you’ve got to get music to back it up.

3. Sometimes, They Took Their Work Home With Them…

Not literally, but one crewman went back to his room in Indonesia to find a Komodo Dragon had snuck in!

While not as scary as a dragon, they’re certainly deadly.

4. Sir David Is Getting Old

90 years old to be exact, so he didn’t go abroad much.

He did record a piece above the Alps and a piece on The Shard.

5. The Stingray Strikes Again!

Likely most well known for stinging and killing Steve Irwin, the stingray took on one of the cameramen during the filming.

It was the only injury during the filming and they made a full recovery.
