Our world is a marvelously beautiful place, filled with wondrous creatures one can never even think about. Our planet is filled with immense beauty that now, given the COVID-19 pandemic, humans won't be able to explore anytime soon. 

At a time like this, Netflix is playing our savior by bringing in 'Absurd Planet's' latest addition to the treasure trove of the nature documentaries it already houses. 

'Absurd Planet' is a spectacular documentary on nature that is presented with its own unique take on Mother Nature and her creatures. Here is everything you need to know about it before it premieres on Netflix. 

Release date

'Absurd Planet' will premiere on Netflix on April 22, 2020. 

Plot

According to the official synopsis of the show accompanying the trailer, "A cast of quirky critters and Mother Nature herself narrate this funny science series, which peeks into the lives of Earth’s most incredible animals."

Cast

Afi Ekulona as Mother Nature

Voiceover artist Afi Ekulona lends a peppy voice to the character of Mother Nature. She has lent her voice in the past for 'UglyDolls', and has worked on 'Grey's Anatomy', 'Miami Medical', 'Starveillance', 'Jonny Zero' and 'Third Watch'. She has also previously voiced characters like Archivist Rhadha, Primeval Queen Dahlah, and Primeval Queen Nahlah among other additional projects for the video game 'Guild Wars 2'.

Trailers

The trailer for Netflix's upcoming nature documentary 'Absurd Planet' is as absurd as it gets. Putting on display the weirder, eccentric side of nature, the documentary teams a quirky Mother Nature voiced by Afi Ekulona, with an equally quirky cast of animal creatures from across the world. 

From the looks of the trailer, it seems the documentary is not only informative but also immensely fun to watch. You might argue 'Absurd Planet' is made for children, but you will be denying yourself a lot of joy if you stick to that presumption. 

Where to watch

'Absurd Planet' will be available to stream on Netflix on April 22, 2020, onwards.
