If you have been following the Disneynature series films you will be happy to know the newest installment, CHIMPANZEE is hitting theaters this coming friday, April 20th!
Disneynature takes moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with “Chimpanzee,” a new True Life Adventure introducing an adorable young chimpanzee named Oscar and his entertaining approach to life in a remarkable story of family bonds and individual triumph. Directed by Alastair Fothergill (“African Cats” and “Earth”) and Mark Linfield (“Earth”), and narrated by Tim Allen (“Toy Story 3,” ABC’s “Last Man Standing”), “Chimpanzee” is the fourth release for Disneynature—the first three releases under the label (“Earth,” “Oceans” and “African Cats”) are among the top four highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time.
I am old enough to realize the genius behind having Jane Goodall to be the one to work with these beautiful animals as she has for many many years, her whole life practically. Disney was the genius here to work with her and learn from her so when they filmed, they had her see the footage and she loved it too. I love her and I love Disneynature films because they teach my children SO MUCH about their world that they may not learn from cartoons or school. I can’t wait to see this movie and in the meantime here is a clip!
I think Oscar is just darling.. so cute! I hope some of you go see this with your kids next weekend!
Want more? you can download a fun filled activity kit that will teach you tons about the movie and chimpanzees and also has some fun nature activities you can do as a family. Just click the photo and you will be able to download the PDF!

SEE “CHIMPANZEE,” SAVE CHIMPANZEES
For every moviegoer who sees “Chimpanzee” during the film’s opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to protect chimpanzees today and tomorrow. Founded in 1977, the Jane Goodall Institute continues Dr. Goodall’s pioneering research on chimpanzee behavior started more than 50 years ago—research that transformed scientific perceptions of the relationship between humans and animals. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the global environmental and humanitarian program for youth of all ages, which has groups in more than 120 countries.
