Great Ape Productions,
Tim Allen narrates this DisneyNature film that follows the life and troubles of a baby Chimpanzee named Oscar and follows him as he grows up in his day to day life.
Disney has always been able to bring nature to the screen since the early days of Uncle Walt’s True Life Adventures. This is another along the same lines. I really was interested in this film, as it was quite beautiful to see, and certainly very educational, but made up a life story for this Chimp that seemed to be true. Tim Allen did an awesome job narrating this. In fact, until this very moment I had no idea it was him. He was flawless in the delivery and made it a very interesting story. Now as to whether the thoughts and emotions that they give to this band of chimps is really true or not, I’m not so sure, but it is true nature, filmed in their everyday lives, and is very accurate in the way they are portrayed. Some very interesting things happen to Oscar, and it certainly keeps your attention. This was a really good nature film, and truly a spectacularly shot piece of film making. If you can’t see it in IMAX, then at least try to watch it on the best HDTV you can find. Disney has done an excellent job with this one!
