‘Here We Are’ Trailer: Meryl Streep Helps Explore The Wonders Of Planet Earth

Earth Day is only a few weeks away and…well, let’s just say this whole COVID-19 thing has thrown it quite the curveball. While we aren’t able to go out and appreciate nature the way we would like to, protecting our planet and the environment is more important now than ever. And Apple TV+ is helping to teach that lesson with their star-studded animated movie, Here We Are.

Featuring the voices of Chris O’Dowd, Ruth Negga, Jacob Tremblay, and Meryl Streep, Here We Are is based on the children’s book by Oliver Jeffers. It centers on a precocious 7-year-old whose parents teach him about the planet and all of its wonders on the eve of Earth Day.

The animation is gorgeous, reminding me a little bit of The Little Prince. This should be something wholesome and enlightening for families as a way of celebrating the planet. Hey, it’s the only one we’ve got.

Here We Are comes to Apple TV+ on April 17th.
