Chimpanzee Challenge Fact #3: Female chimpanzees give birth to a single infant (twins are rare) every 5 to 6 years. A newborn chimpanzee weighs 3–4 pounds and is born helpless. Within a few days it is able to travel by clinging to its mother’s stomach and by 5 to 7 months old it is strong enough to ride on her back.

To get you even more excited about Disneynature’s new movie, Chimpanzee (opens in theaters on Friday, April 20th), today we have a few fun things for the kids:


Meet Oscar




Oscar is a feisty, funny and adorable baby chimpanzee.  His high-energy spirit and sense of adventure shine as he plays with his little friends and learns the ways of the world under the watchful eye of mom Isha. But life in the rainforest isn’t always fun and games and Oscar has a lot to learn.  He teams up with a very special and unexpected teacher who shares the most valuable tool of all: love

Chimpanzee Fun Facts

For the trivia buffs, this two page PDF lists interesting facts about the making of Chimpanzee.  For example, how do you think the materials for the crew’s camp was transported into the forest?  The crew actually carried the materials (including 2.5 tons of cement, 7 tons of wood and 3 sinks) on their heads.

Another interesting fact:  Before going near the chimpanzees, the crew had to spend eight days in quarantine (five days in the forest camp, three in the capital Abidjan), to ensure they did not bring diseases into the forest that could be transmitted to the chimpanzees. This is why filmmakers wore masks.

  16. einbahn146 says:

    The first time I saw the trailer for this film I cried. Any story featuring an orphan touches my heart and I’ve been so impressed with Disney’s previous nature films. I am taking me four-year-old nephew to “meet” Oscar tomorrow (opening) night and can’t wait to share the experience with him…. also, I’m a big fan of “Switchfoot” and loved they they were used in the trailer.

  17. I pledge to see this movie opening weekend.
