April 20, 2012 – The Disneynature Film Chimpanzee is Released to Theaters

“For Oscar, every day is an adventure.”

On April 20, 2012, the sixth entry in the Disneynature film line, Chimpanzee, was released to theaters. The film follows the story of a young chimpanzee named Oscar who, after his close-knit tribe is attached by a rival gang of chimps, has to fend for himself in the forest. This film was notable for being the first documented footage of chimpanzees committing acts of altruism. The film was directed by Alistair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, and narrated by Tim Allen. Principal photography was done in the jungles of Uganda and the Ivory Coast.
