Are you ready for the big DisneyNature film of the year, Chimpanzee?
Chimpanzee summary: The world is a playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimpanzees, 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 chimpanzees, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.
“When that [tragic event] happened, we thought the film was over. We were about to ring up Disney and say ‘Guys, we haven’t got a movie’,” director Alastair Fothergill shares in the featurette below. “but then the most unpredictable thing happened — the adoption of our star by Freddy, the alpha male. Never filmed before in the wild.”
For the See Chimps, Save Chimps initiative, when you see the movie during opening week (April 20-26th), Disneynature will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund in order to protect chimpanzees and their habitats, now and into the future.
