LONDON (Reuters) - British actress Naomie Harris and musician Brian Eno have teamed up to produce a short film backing calls for urgent action to slow climate change, in support of civil disobedience campaign Extinction Rebellion.

Harris, who plays Eve Moneypenny in the James Bond movies "Skyfall," "Spectre" and the forthcoming "No Time To Die", provides the voice-over for the animation, which also explores the threat posed by the accelerating loss of species.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace: Trump Wishes Biden Had Picked Anyone But Kamala Harris

  Fox News’ Chris Wallace: Trump Wishes Biden Had Picked Anyone But Kamala Harris President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is “the kind of opponent everyone dreams of.” Chris Wallace isn’t buying it. According to the Fox News Sunday host, Biden’s vice presidential pick is “not far to the left, despite what Republicans are going to try to say” and ultimately a “reasonably safe choice” for the role. “She adds some excitement to the ticket,” he added. “She’s a statement to African-Americans and especially to African-American women, who are the real solid core of the Democratic Party, that the party does not take them for granted.

"I'm proud to be able to lend my voice to this project, which I hope will inspire viewers to get behind the ambitions of Extinction Rebellion with a great deal of urgency," Harris said in a statement ahead of the film's release on Thursday.

Called "We Must Act Now," the film is the first of two animations backed by Hollywood stars to support Extinction Rebellion, which originated in Britain and mobilised thousands of volunteers to peacefully offer themselves for arrest at climate protests last year.

The second film, called "Climate Crisis, and Why We Should Panic," is voiced by actress Keira Knightley, and argues for emergency action on global warming.

Hundreds of scientists and academics have backed Extinction Rebellion, saying that civil disobedience is the only option left to force governments to embrace the scale of action needed to prevent millions of deaths due to climate change.

Critics say the movement's disruptive protests, which shut down parts of London last year, have stretched police resources and caused unnecessary inconvenience to commuters.

Nevertheless, the movement has attracted a string of celebrity backers, including Eno, who composed the animation's soundtrack.

In January, Joaquin Phoenix, who won a best actor Oscar this year for his performance in "Joker", starred as a medic battling to save planet Earth in a two-minute film to support Extinction Rebellion and San Francisco-based Amazon Watch.
