Today is the red carpet movie premiere of Disneynature‘s “Chimpanzee”. I have a busy and fun-filled day of movies, interviews, Wild Africa Trek in Animal Kingdom, and so much more. Don’t forget that you all can see “Chimpanzee” next Friday, April 20th. It is really important to see this film during opening week because all earnings will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute. If you’re curious about my schedule for the day, I have included it below. I have 4 interviews today and would like to know if YOU have any questions that you would be curious to ask any of the people I get to interview today. If you were sitting at a table with any of the following people, what would you be dying to ask them?
Jane Goodall: the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and is considered to be the foremost expert on Chimpanzees.
Alastair Fothergill & Mark Linfield: Directors of the Disneynature films.
Dr. Beth Stevens: Senior Vice President of Corporate Citizenship Environment & Conservation for The Walt Disney Company.
If you have any questions that you’d like me to ask, please leave a comment below and I will do my best to ask. I will also be writing up a post with our interviews, later.
