Have you ever sat at home watching Planet Earth and thought to yourself, “God, I really wish there was an edit of this with just the bird parts.” If so, you’re in luck!

The American Museum of Natural History is premiering a groundbreaking new film on September 15 in 3D digital and 2D that will show visitors what it’s actually like to fly like a bird. The new film, which, presumably, will be far more literal than Nelly Furtado’s past work, takes viewers across four countries on four different continents to learn about how birds fly and what it’s actually like for them to take to the sky.

Impressively, the new documentary was filmed with 3D cameras that were also, well, flying, with the help of microlights, paragliders and octocopters. Oh, it’s also narrated by Cate Blanchett who we’ve definitely suspected of being a bird for a few years now.

The new 3D experience will run through March 8, 2018.
