Liam Neeson will narrate a big-screen documentary about Ireland that is set to hit theaters in Ireland, the US, and Canada on February 11, 2022.
"Ireland" follows Irish writer Manchán Magan as he explores the history, culture, and geography of the island, connecting people with Irish ancestry to their homeland.
Magan is joined by concert violinist Patricia Treacey and four teenagers who are looking to gain greater insight into their Irish heritage as they travel from Dublin to Belfast and from the Cliffs of Moher to the Skelling Islands among other famous locations.
Neeson said that the documentary will make viewers "fall in love with Ireland" as they experience its "great beauty and humanity".
"There is a movement in Ireland to reconnect with our heritage, to rediscover what it means to be Irish, and I am delighted to help bring the joy and diversity of all that Ireland has to offer, both the old and the new," Neeson said in a statement.
Tourism Ireland is a sponsor of the new documentary, and has shared this teaser trailer:
