Dr. Jane Goodall can't believe her eyes when it comes to Disney's new chimp flick.
The doc who has spent over 50 years with chimpanzees says that Chimpanzee story, about an alpha male adopting a youngster, is truly something she's rarely seen in her line of work.
But behind the touching story, there is a warning: Don't take chimps away from their family!
Dr. Jane explains the seriousness of keeping primates as pets:
I should say, while looking at Oscar might make people feel like, 'Wow, I want a pet chimpanzee,' when they realize that Oscar can grow up into a leader of the community, they'll think twice.
They don't want an adult chimpanzee in their house.
Hopefully, they'll also realize that infant chimps belong to their mothers, and how cruel it is, if you buy a chimpanzee pet, it's being wrenched from its mother, and nobody should want to do that after they'd seen the film.
Dr. Jane also says that humans can learn so much from the film as well, as the chimpanzee is our closest relative.
Part of the proceeds from the flick with go towards the Jane Goodall Institute.
