See Chimpanzee, Save Chimpanzees Program Extended Through May 3rd, 2012

Chimpanzee had an amazing opening weekend, bringing in $10.6 million, part of which will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute as part of the “See Chimpanzee, Save Chimpanzees” Program. By now I hope that quite a few of you had the opportunity to see Chimpanzee in theatres so that part of your ticket costs would be donated to this wonderful cause. If not, the program has been extended until May 3rd, 2012.

Alan Bergman, president of Walt Disney Studios, said in a recent press release, “Chimpanzee has won the hearts of audiences nationwide. It’s because of that success that we decided to extend our program with the Jane Goodall Institute.”

If you haven’t seen my review of Chimpanzee, check it out here. This is a family friendly, feel good film that you do not want to miss. It has a very playful narration provided by Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story) and a simple script and filming process that even the youngest viewers will be able to follow along with. I’d absolutely feel comfortable allowing my 4-year-old to watch it, and would have the same sentiment if she were 2 years younger.
