RANDOM MONKEY FACTOID ABOUT - Mighty Joe Young! In this 1998 Disney film, Joe is raised by Charlize Theron’s character, Jill, who brings him to the United States. An evil poacher, who was also responsible for the death of Joe’s mother, and Jill’s mother, then threatens Joe’s life. Joe met a heroic end in the film while saving a child’s life at the Santa Monica pier, where he fell from a Ferris wheel: this implausible scenario led the film to be considered a disaster by some critics.
