Product Overview

Swing into action and adventure with Disney's original classic, Tarzan, packed with fun-filled bonus features and award-winning music such as the memorable "You'll Be In My Heart" and "Trashin' The Camp." Disney's magnificent animated adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's story of the ape man begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan is adopted by a family of gorillas. Even though he is shunned as a "hairless wonder" by their leader, Tarzan is accepted by the gorillas and raised as one of their own. Together with his wisecracking ape buddy Terk and neurotic elephant pal Tantor, Tarzan learns how to "surf" and swing through the trees and survive in the animal kingdom. His "Two Worlds" collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a "civilized" life with the beautiful Jane and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family. Filled with humor, heart, and hilarious fun, Tarzan is an unforgettable adventure you'll watch again and again.

Editors Note
Note The legend of Tarzan is told in breathtaking fashion, from the loss of his parents in Africa to his adoption by a gorilla mother, Kala, to his rescue of Jane and the revelation that he is a human. Tarzan must decide where he belongs in life, while falling in love and saving his gorilla family from outsiders. An exciting film for the whole family, with songs by Phil Collins. The film's music was nominated for two Grammy Awards and one Golden Globe.

Review From a purely visual standpoint, this may be the most impressive of all of Disney's traditionally animated features. The backdrops are lush, the characters are well realized, and the action sequences are dizzying, with frequent changes of perspectives and camera angles. No conventional animated film has been this ambitious before.

Review Tarzan, the new Disney animated feature, is the best news to hit cartooning, and perhaps Hollywood, in ages. It is the full-service, romance-and-adventure, laugh-and-cry movie that Disney and its new competitors have been trying to make, without quite succeeding, since The Lion King five summers ago... This is brisk, epic storytelling.

Review I saw Tarzan once, and went to see it again. This kind of bright, colorful, hyperkinetic animation is a visual exhilaration. Animation cuts loose from what we can actually see and shows us what we might ideally see. Like Mulan and A Bug's Life, this is a film where grownups do not need to be accompanied by a non-adult guardian.
