On April 20th, just in time for Earth Day, Disneynature is taking moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with the release of CHIMPANZEE, a new true-life adventure that introduces us to the adorable young chimp named Oscar and his chimpanzee family. Featuring Disneynature’s signature breathtaking, never-before-seen footage, CHIMPANZEE showcases the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom.
If you have ever seen one of the Disneynature films you know that the beauty of the land and the story itself is heart touching and breath taking.
In celebration of the film’s release, Disneynature has joined forces with the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada for a “See CHIMPANZEE, Save Chimpanzees” program where for every moviegoer who sees the film on opening week, a donation will be made to JGI Canada to help protect chimpanzees and their habitats, now and into the future.
In the spirit of the film, and to further do their part to help protect these amazing animals, Disney Studios is launching a “’Like’ Us, Save Chimps” program on their Walt Disney Studios Canada Facebook page.
If they can reach 22,000 “likes” by Sunday, April 22nd – Earth Day, they will adopt two orphaned chimpanzees through the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada’s Chimp Guardian Program. We’ve “LIKED” them on Facebook to help out this great cause – will you?
Check out our review of the film later on this month! We are excited to be able to giveaway 2 family passes to an advance screening of CHIMPANZEE.
1 lucky Winnipeg or Ottawa Mommy Moment reader will win a family pack of 4 passes to see CHIMPANZEE on April 14, 2012.
(The Winnipeg Show will be at 10am @ SilverCity Polo Park and the Ottawa Show will be at 10am @ SilverCity Gloucester)
