Stunning hi-definition images bring you up close and personal as Oscar and his family navigate thecomplex territory of the forest. It’s an inspiring and life-changing adventure that overflows with courage and charm. And it will capture your heart.

ON LOCATION: THE MAKING OF “CHIMPANZEE” is a series of exciting short features that delve further into the incredible lengths the filmmakers went to tell the story of Oscar and his chimpanzee family.

  • 30 Years in the Making—The story of the team of researchers who have been observing chimpanzees in the Ivory Coast for 30 years
  • The Heart of the “Chimpanzee”—A behind-the-scenes look at how and why the film was made.
  • Piece of the Puzzle—A cameraman’s two-hour daily trek through the forest to get to the chimpanzees.
  • Don’t Blame the Tool—An observation of the chimpanzees’ daily lives and how they use rocks as tools to prepare their food.
  • Scar’s Army—An inside look at the struggles between the film’s two rival chimpanzee groups who share the same forest home.
  • Camp Invaders—Afeaturette on all the creepy, crawly creatures found at the filmmakers’ forest camp.
  • Forest of Bees—A feature detailing how the crew spent two days wading through a sea of bees that inhabited their filming location in order to capture 20 seconds of footage.
  • “Rise” Music Video—A music video featuring Hollywood Records recording artists McClain Sisters who wrote and performed the inspirational song that plays during the film’s end credits.
  • Behind the Scenes of “Rise”—An inside look at McClain Sisters music video shoot.

 My thoughts…Watching the daily activities of Oscar and his Mom was sweet and inspiring. I’m really appreciating the lengths that the DisneyNature crew members go through to capture something so spectacular. It’s like bringing a nature lesson that much closer without going out to the zoo – even then, at a zoo, you’d never get to learn or witness that much knowledge or beauty.

It was great to see the head chimp, Freddy, step up to the plate and help out Oscar after their tribe got ambushed and his Mom was missing…well, only after Oscar approached him and the others rejected him. As a Mom, I couldn’t imagine, not stepping up and helping out a little guy who lost his mother…even if you already have your hands full, there’s always room for one more!

This was a great flick, that left my 4yo son with lots of questions and my daughter in awe of the real nature. We can’t wait to see what else DisneyNature will come up with.
