Coming Soon from Disneynature: Chimpanzee!

I’ve been seeing trailers at the theater for the upcoming movie, “Chimpanzee,” from Disneynature, and it looks incredible! I was awed by the fantastic photography as the filmmakers followed a family of chimps in the wild, but I was especially moved by the wide range of emotions displayed by the chimpanzees.

About the movie: Disneynature takes moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with “Chimpanzee,” a new True-Life Adventure introducing an adorable young chimp named Oscar and his entertaining approach to life in a remarkable story of family bonds and individual triumph. Oscar’s playful curiosity and zest for discovery showcase the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom. Working together, Oscar’s chimpanzee family -- including his mom, Isha, and the group’s savvy leader, Freddy -- navigates the complex territory of the forest. The world is a playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimps, who’d rather make mayhem than join their parents for an afternoon nap. But when Oscar’s family is confronted by a rival band of chimps, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.

I hope you’ll go to see “Chimpanzee” during opening week because Disneynature will make a donation for every ticket sold during that time to the Jane Goodall Institute to protect chimpanzees today and tomorrow.
