Disneynature's latest film, Chimpanzee, is out in theatres today. I was fortunate enough to attend a pre-screening for this film, and let me tell you... it was SO CUTE! Beautiful cinematography, a touching story, and just an amazing look at this fascinating animals.
I was impressed with how well adults or children could enjoy this film. The narration, by Tim Allen, is lovely and funny. The images are incredible, as well. It was definitely a film I thoroughly enjoyed, while thinking the whole time that kids would definitely enjoy it as well. Though Oscar experiences a sad moment, the story has a lovely happy ending. It is just so amazing to see how human like the chimpanzees are in their mannerisms and behaviour.
If you see Chimpanzee during opening week, a donation will be made from the ticket sales to the Jane Goodall Institute to care for orphaned chimps, habitat protection, as well as to educate future generations on caring for this amazing creatures. It's "See Chimpanzee, Save Chimpanzees", and I think it's a wonderful pledge. This would be a great film to see in celebration of Earth Day on Sunday!
