Have you been wondering why I’ve been posting so much about Disneynature’s Chimpanzee lately?? Well, before I get to the “big announcement” – I’d like to share a little more about this awesome film.
Chimpanzee will be released to theaters on Earth Day, April 20th 2012:
Disneynature takes moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with “Chimpanzee,” a new True Life Adventure introducing an adorable baby 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 and the group’s savvy leader — 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. Directed by Alastair Fothergill (“African Cats” and “Earth”) and Mark Linfield (“Earth”), “Chimpanzee” swings into theaters on Earth Day 2012.
Once you watch the trailer- you will fall in love with this lil 3yr old Chimp. He is adorable!! I am sure I will have a box o’tissues with me at the theater!!! I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU to head to the theater the first week it’s released – why? EVERY TICKET purchased during opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to JGI through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. This fund is in place to protect chimpanzees and their habitats!! Here is a featurette in case you missed it – then my BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!
