From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Earth, Oceans and African  Cats, comes Chimpanzee — a remarkable story of individual triumph and  family bonds. Journey deep into the African rainforest and meet Oscar, an  adorable young chimp with an entertaining approach to life. The world is a  playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimps who love creating  mayhem. Full of curiosity, a zest for discovery, joy and a love for mimicking  others, they are some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal  kingdom.
