The BBC has earned a reputation as the one of the best networks for producing nature documentaries, and BBC One's new 'Planet Earth II' looks to be a continuation of that. In a follow-up to the network's wildly successful and acclaimed 'Planet Earth' series, the upcoming nature doc has been shot in 4K UHD, making it an even more dramatically beautiful presentation of the natural world.

Planet Earth II is not yet available to the public, with the teaser trailer merely offering a tantalizing "coming soon" in reference to its release date. Nonetheless, the trailer reveals that nature documentarian and narrating stalwart David Attenborough will voice the series' second installation.

On top of the wilderness-dwelling subjects in the documentary, the trailer shows scenes of urban animals like raccoons and monkeys, which is new subject matter for the series.
