‘Chimpanzee’ tells touching story of love and survival

When a young chimp is orphaned, an unexpected adoption changes his life. The latest film from Disneynature shines a light on our closest relatives in the animal kingdom.

Oscar, the star in the film, 'Chimpanzee,' finds himself alone in the African forest and is adopted by an older male chimp. The film by Disneynature will donate proceeds of first week ticket sales to the Jane Goodall Institute. Here are some amazing photographs from the film.
