Disneynature’s Chimpanzee – The Red Carpet Premiere! #DisneyGlobalEvent #MeetOscar

by Carrie with Children with 14 comments

This past Friday, I attended the worldwide premiere of Disneynature’s Chimpanzee.  It was a once in a lifetime experience to be in the middle of the excitement leading up to the film….and all the stars came out to celebrate!

As I made my way down the red carpet to the theater, I was starstruck to see Dr. Jane Goodall stopping to chat with reporters about the film.  She’s an inspirational leader and I recently learned she’s a United Nations Messenger of Peace and a Dame of the British Empire – amazing!

    It sounds like you had a great time! I bet it was fun to walk the red carpet. 🙂 We’re going to see Chimpanzee tonight…is it something that is going to entertain my 4 year old enough? I can’t wait to read your review!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks LeeAnn! It was fun!

      I think your four-year old will definitely be entertained. During our roundtable interview with the directors (which I’ll post about later this week), one of them mentioned his four-year old was also in the theater with us and that he LOVED it! So, I think you’ll be fine! 🙂

  • Sara @ Mom Endeavors
