Disney Nature's Chimpanzee to hold World Premiere at Walt Disney World


The WORLD PREMIERE of the feature film "Chimpanzee," will take place beginning 11am on April 13, 2012 at the AMC Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World. Directors Alastair Fothergill ("African Cats" and "Earth") and Mark Linfield ("Earth"), as well as Dr. Jane Goodall will be on hand for the celebration to walk the red carpet.

Disneynature's newest True-Life Adventure features the wildly entertaining and heart-warming story of Oscar, an enchanting young chimpanzee whose life is caught on camera for the world to share.

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. 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 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.

"Chimpanzee" swings into theaters on April 20, 2012, just in time for Earth Day 2012. "Chimpanzee" is rated G by the MPAA.

Disneynature joined forces with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) for a special "See CHIMPANZEE, Save Chimpanzees" program. For every moviegoer who sees "Chimpanzee" during the film's opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to JGI through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund in order to protect chimpanzees and their habitats.
