Chimpanzee

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 mum, 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.

Directed by Alastair Fothergill ("African Cats" and "Earth") and Mark Linfield ("Earth"), and narrated by Tim Allen (ABC's "Last Man Standing"), "Chimpanzee" swings into theatres on May 3rd 2013.

Disneynature is also working with Jane Goodall renowned primatologist, founder of Jane Goodall Institute, the global organisation that empowers people to make a difference for all living things. In the UK Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots groups work in hundreds of schools inspiring young people to take action for people, animals and the environment. They also raise awareness of the need for conservation, and chimpanzees in Africa.

Disneynature's Chimpanzee opens in UK cinemas May 3rd 2013.
