AceShowbiz - Meryl Streep is helping to save the planet by narrating a new animated short film to be released ahead of Earth Day, April 22, 2020.
The three-time Oscar winner will guide viewers through Apple TV's "Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth", a 36-minute recreation of the eponymous Oliver Jeffers picture book that celebrates nature.
Other actors taking part include "Room" star Jason Tremblay, who voices a seven-year-old boy learning about the wonders of the world from his mum and dad, and Chris O'Dowd and Ruth Negga who play his parents.
This isn't the first voiceover gig Streep has taken on. Having launched her cartoon career in the 1980s with the "Rabbit Ears: The Tale of Peter Rabbit" franchise, she also served as the narrator for 2009 release "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and 2001 sci-fi classic "A.I. Artificial Intelligence".
"Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth" premieres on the Apple TV+ streaming service on 17 April.
