Fast Company's Co.Create speaks to legendary researcher Jane Goodall who was an advisor on Disneynature's documentary, Chimpanzee, about the unusual circumstances surrounding an alpha male who adopts an orphaned chimp.

Explains Goodall about the production, "You’re in difficult terrain or the forest struggling with heavy equipment, and chimps move very fast.

It was really tough for this film team."
