Saw it in the theater this afternoon. Wanted to make sure I saw it opening weekend as although it is not much, for every ticket sold opening weekend, Disney was donating 20 cents to the Jane Goodall Institute for each ticket sold. Really is a paltry sum when you take into account what type of money Disney has, but every little things helps is the way I see it.
Honestly I wanted to see it ever since I first saw the trailer, the donation was just extra incentive to go this weekend and it really was great. It is every so slightly a tad on the corny side because it is Rated G, so it has to appeal to very young children so the narration was reflective of this fact, but it could have been a silent film and it still would have been great. The star of it, Oscar, is perhaps one of the most lovable characters to ever grace the silver screen. Truly loved the little guy the first time he appeared on film and as the viewer you really are so attached to him almost instantly. Just loved it, one of those movies you walk out of with a greater appreciation of life itself, and that you cannot help but have a good feeling.
