Back to 2012 Movie Preview: Family Movies
Release Date: April 20, 2012
Disney's push to develop educational nature films continues with this Earth Day (weekend) release. The documentary team behind 'African Cats' and 'Earth' turn their lens to the ape kingdom; 'Chimpanzee' concludes a three-year look at primate populations along the Ivory Coast and Uganda -- focusing in on the story of Oscar, an orphaned chimp that was rescued by a new family. Proceeds from the movie will go toward the Jane Goodall Institute, giving children the chance to do their own small part in protecting chimp habitats.
