Planet Earth II (4K UHD) [Blu-ray]
A decade ago, Planet Earth redefined natural history filmmaking, giving us the ultimate portrait of life on Earth. Ten years on, advances in both filming technology and our understanding of the natural world mean we can reveal our planet from a completely new perspective. Now, Planet Earth II allows us to experience the world from the viewpoint of animals themselves.
Travelling through jungles, deserts, mountains, islands, grasslands and cities, this series explores the unique characteristics of Earth’s most iconic habitats and the extraordinary ways animals survive within them. New technology has allowed individual stories to be captured in an unparalleled level of detail.
For the first time viewers are immersed in incredible landscapes, allowing them to share the most dramatic moments in the lives of animals.

The behind the scenes/bonus disc is in regular blu-ray and not full 4k. The bonus disc is quite informative and showcases the team's efforts in creating this masterpiece.
One star deducted because of the inconsistent quality between some of the scenes. Also planet earth 2 contains less content than the first planet earth movie.
Picture Quality 4/5
Audio quality 5/5
Overall this is a must own 4k disc. It is available on Netflix in 4k but the difference in picture quality is quite noticeable.
Further advances in technology really get you up close and personal with the subject matter and some truly expert and daring camera work allow you to feel less like you are on the couch and more like you are in the field. Don't let that be the sole selling point though, the stories are still the reason to invest your time. Enthralling for all ages, it really gives you a huge window into a world that we all too often ignore and forget. Beauty surrounds us in this world but so does modern chaos and these films give us a chance to remember and refocus on why this planet is such a magical place as well as why it deserves to be treated better by us. We are not here alone. This offering also goes beyond introducing us to the little (or totally) unknown, it also focuses on the changes that the producers and Sir David Attenborough have witressed since the ground breaking original series. This element alone, is reason enough to buy this series but as expected, there are so many other reasons as well.
Technically speaking, these discs offer the best sound and visual presentations that the medium has to offer. Crisp, vibrant and detailed in every way. They are well worth their price and if your family enjoys them like ours does, you will find yourself pulling them out of the library more than anything else that you own. We have them all and we have watched them over and over in rotation.
BBC and Attenborough are the standard by which all others in this genre, get measured.
Don't even hesitate, you deserve to enjoy this magical journey.
After watching it 2 times through, I am awed and inspired. Love BBC's documentaries! Can't wait to see more!
