To mark 'World Environment Day' Whoopi Goldberg has joined Extinction Rebellion's cause, by lending her iconic voice to an emotive animation with a poignant message about climate action.

Created by the minds behind Greenpeace's loveable Rang-tan, Passion Pictures, The Gigantic Change warns against being sedentary about climate change action coming out of lockdown.

Set in the future, Goldberg acts as a grandmother in the year 2050. Responding to the request from her grandchild for a bedtime story, Goldberg's character picks up 'The Big Change' - a story about our treatment of the earth today.

As she reads the story, her voice brings a sense of gravitas to the message, as she relays the disastrous ways humans were harming the earth by in 2020.

Asking the child to finish the story, the narrative switches to a message of hope, that all might not be lost if people take action.
