Disneynature's 'Chimpanzee' Trailer Hits the Web (Video)

The documentary opens in theaters April 20, 2012.

Chimpanzee - H 2011

The theatrical trailer for the next project from Disneynature, an independent label of Disney, Chimpanzee has hit the web.

Directed by Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, the documentary follows baby chimp Oscar and his approach to life in a story of family and individual accomplishment. And like many nature docs, the trailer gives a good idea as to what moviegoers will be in for.

The story is similar to those that have come before it: Oscar finds himself an orphan, but clings on to one who will continue where his parents left off.

Disneynature's Chimpanzee opens in theaters April 20, 2012. Disneynature has several feature films since its creation in 2008: Earth, Oceans and African Cats.
