The upcoming factual feature is currently in post production and is being made by the BBC and China’s SMG, with Goldcrest Films distributing. It will have a theatrical release, following the US$112 million box office success of the first film.
Actor, director and environmentalist Redford will narrate the English-language version, while Chan will voice its Mandarin equivalent.
The film is billed as an immersive voyage across the earth as the filmmakers track the journey of the sun over a day.
“Robert Redford and Jackie Chan each lending their voices to the film is the icing on the cake for what is already a formidable international talent line up on this world class film,” said Stephen McDonogh, who is producing the project.
