Disneynature’s Chimpanzee Released on Blu-ray/DVD {Giveaway}

With two young girls in my home, you can believe that we are immersed in all things Disney.  From princesses to fairies and Minnie Mouse to Toy Story, we are “Disney-fied” and our recent trip to Disney World only exaggerated their obsession.  So, I was thrilled when Chimpanzee was released in theaters!  However, from reading a few reviews of the movie I was unsure if it would be appropriate for my young girls so I decided to wait for the movie to be released on DVD.

And the day has come! Disneynature released Chimpanzee on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On-Demand viewing on August 21, 2012.  Chimpanzee is “an inspiring film that follows the True-Life Adventure of Oscar, a young chimpanzee whose curiosity and zest for life showcases the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom.”  Check out the trailer:


After viewing the trailer, I was definitely intrigued by the photography captured in this movie as well as Oscar’s story but was worried it would be too “real” for my little ones.  I knew that the movie surrounds the death of Oscar’s mother and I wasn’t sure how my daughters would process that scene.  That being said, after watching the movie alone, I was incredibly impressed with how this story is told.  Chimpanzee does indeed focus on what life is like for these animals including foraging and fighting for tribal position but does not show violence.  While scenes can get frantic and it is apparent that violence is happening, Chimpanzee does not show any gore that would be inappropriate.  In fact, the overwhelming theme of the movie is triumph, love and just plain cuteness!


I absolutely loved Chimpanzee and do feel like my daughters can handle it.  Of course, every child is different, so I would suggest watching it first on your own.  Another advantage of purchasing the Blu-ray Combo Pack is the incredible bonus features.  The behind the scenes clips are even more amazing that the movie!  Check out one of the features here:

Disneynature: Chimpanzee can be purchased for just $22.72 on Amazon right now!  This would certainly make a great holiday gift!  And if you are super lucky, you can win one right here on Experimental Mommy!
