Hailed by critics as “breathtaking,” “astounding,” and “the best nature film ever made,” Chimpanzee is a G-rated family film that takes viewers deep into the African forest to meet an adorable baby chimp named Oscar.
Smart and playful, Oscar has a natural curiosity that makes him want to discover all he can about the complex world around him. Through his interactions with his chimpanzee friends and family – including his mother, the group’s leader, and other young chimps in the group – Oscar learns how to live, love and navigate through the world.
In fact, the forest world is an exciting playground for Oscar and his friends, who seem to have a knack for getting into trouble with the adults of the group. After all, creating mayhem is far more fun than taking an afternoon nap! Then, after Oscar’s family faces a rival band of chimps, Oscar is left to fend for himself and ends up having a surprising experience that changes his life forever.
Chimpanzee, a new True Life Advanture from Disneynature, showcases the incredible intelligence and ingenuity of the chimps, who have some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom. Chimpanzee is narrated by Tim Allen and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, two British producers/directors known for their work on nature documentaries for both TV and cinema.
