As part of the 2012 New York International Children’s Film Festival, filmgoers in the New York City area will have the opportunity to see Disneynature’s newest film, Chimpanzee, more than a month before its theatrical release.
Chimpanzee tells the true-life story of an adorable young chimp named Oscar. Oscar’s playful curiosity and zest for discovery showcase the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom.
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. Working together, Oscar’s chimpanzee family – including his mom, Isha, and the group’s savvy leader, Freddy – navigates the complex territory of the forest. But when Oscar’s family is confronted by a rival community of chimps, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.
Tickets for the screening, which will take place on Saturday, March 10, are available to the public for $13 or $10 at the group rate. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit TicketWeb.
Chimpanzee opens in theaters nationwide on April 20, 2012.
