A Greta Thunberg documentary is in the works

The climate activist’s work to date will be presented in a new documentary, set to air next year.

2019 has been a huge year for Greta Thunberg.

The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist was recently named as TIME’s Person of the Year, becoming the youngest recipient in history of the magazine’s award.

In Thunberg’s campaign against climate change, she has addressed heads of state at the United Nations, met with the Pope, gone toe-to-toe with the President of the United States and inspired millions of people to join the global climate strike that took place on 20 September; the largest climate demonstration in human history.

Thunberg’s powerful speech aimed at the UN remains one of the most iconic moments of the year.

As such, it makes perfect sense that a documentary crew might want to get involved.

Deadline reports that Hulu will air an original documentary set to premiere in 2020 with a working title of Greta.

The team focusing on Thunberg has done so from her early school strike in Stockholm to the world stage, capturing footage during every significant step.

Thunberg has proved to be a notably divisive figure, drawing both criticism and adulation on her journey thus far.
