Meet Oscar the chimp.
Look at that ‘lil guys face. How can you not want to reach out and make a connection with him?
Chimpanzee, the film featuring Oscar, is a true-life adventure produced by Disneynature. It opens appropriately on Earth Day, which is April 20, 2012.
The films follows the life of young Oscar, a funny and energetic little chimpanzee, who lives in the forests of Africa with his group of pals, his mom, Isha, and the group leader, Freddy. Oscar’s life is turned upside down when his family and friends are confronted by a rival band of chimps. Freddy’s life then changes in ways that are completely unexpected.
I have a bucket list, like many of us, I suspect. And one thing on that list is to go to Africa, where I can view chimps in the wild.
For every person that sees Chimpanzee in the movie theatre during opening week, Disneynature will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute to help protect chimpanzees and their habitats in the wild. How wonderful is that?
Good luck, Oscar.
