Disneynature’s Chimpanzee Featurette and Announcement

disneynature chimpanzeeI have some exciting news…not only does Disneynature have another fabulous feature film coming this spring, but I will be attending the RED CARPET Premiere of Chimpanzee!!

Disneynature takes moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with “Chimpanzee,” a new True-Life Adventure introducing an adorable young chimp 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 mom, 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 chimps, 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 chimps, 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”), “Chimpanzee” swings into theaters on Earth Day 2012.

I will be flying to Orlando, Florida, in April to attend, among other things, some press events for Chimpanzee (which makes me tear up every single time I see a preview- I better pack tissues)including the red carpet premiere, along with 19 other fabulous bloggers.  I’ll be sharing lots of photos and updates on my trip, including interviews with Dr. Jane Goodall, so be sure to watch for those!!

In the meantime, here’s a featurette to check out:
