Today, April 20th, Disneynature will take moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with CHIMPANZEE, a new True Life Adventure for the entire family that introduces an adorable baby chimp named Oscar and his entertaining approach to life in a remarkable real life story of family bonds and individual triumph.

In addition, Disneynature has teamed up with the Jane Goodall institute (led by world-renowned primatologist and UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall) to save chimpanzees and will contribute $.20 per ticket sold during the film’s opening week to the Jane Goodall Institute for the Disneynature Tchimpounga Nature Reserve Project.

Due to the time sensitive nature of the post, I am posting today rather than Mom Monday. I hope you can make it out to this movie this weekend in support of the Jane Goodall Institute.

Here are some of the cool & real life characters you’ll get to meet:

OSCAR is a feisty, funny and adorable baby chimpanzee. His high-energy spirit and sense of adventure shine as he plays with his little friends and learns the ways of the world under the watchful eye of mom Isha. But life in the rainforest isn’t always fun and games and Oscar has a lot to learn. He teams up with a very special and unexpected teacher who shares the most valuable tool of all: love.

ISHA is Oscar’s loving mother and sole caretaker. She grooms him, nurses him and serves as his personal taxi throughout the rainforest. Like all mothers, she is challenged with Oscar’s restless ways—often missing out on well-deserved naps due to his shenanigans. But she loves her son dearly and would do anything for him.


FREDDY is the powerful and highly respected leader of Oscar’s chimpanzee family. He is in charge of keeping everyone safe and knows just where to go to find breakfast, lunch and dinner. Freddy takes his responsibilities very seriously, so he has little time for fun.

SCAR heads up a rival chimpanzee group which always seems to be lingering on the edge of Freddy’s turf. They’d love to get their hands on the tasty nuts that grow in Oscar’s neighborhood and their constant presence keeps Freddy on his toes.
