With Disneynature’s “African Cats” hitting theaters today, the studio has taken the wraps off their next big Earth Day feature called “Chimpanzee”.

Unlike their previous films, this one has a real story to it – focusing on a baby chimp named Oscar who becomes orphaned and raised by another. The entire thing seems so incredibly scripted that it’s really hard to believe the cameras were just there at the right time, right place. I want to believe, Disney – I do! Don’t mess with us.

So absolutely – check out the below trailer for all the heartwrenching cuteness you can handle. This ball of Awww hits next April. Just like the others, expect the opening weekend to be a huge fundraiser for some chimp-focused conservation org.
