Product Description

Product Description

Swing into action and adventure with Disney's original classic, TARZAN(R), 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 Burroughs'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(R) is an unforgettable adventure you'll watch again and again.~~TARZAN(R) Owned by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. And Used by Permission.

After viewing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote to Walt Disney about adapting his novel of an ape-man into a feature animated cartoon. Sixtysome years later, the tale is finally told with brilliant design work that looks unlike any previous animated film. The story is a natural for Disney since the themes of misunderstood central figures have been at the heart of its recent hits. Disney's Tarzan doesn't wander far from the familiar story of a shipwrecked baby who is brought up by apes in Africa. What gives the film its zing is its clever use of music (the songs are sung by Phil Collins himself rather than onscreen characters) and the remarkable animation. Deep Canvas, a 3-D technology, was developed for the film, creating a jungle that comes alive as Tarzan swings through the trees, often looking like a modern skateboarder racing down giant tree limbs. The usual foray of sidekicks, including a rambunctious ape voiced by Rosie O'Donnell, should keep the little ones aptly entertained. The two lead voices, Tony Goldwyn as Tarzan and Minnie Driver as Jane, are inspired choices. Their chemistry helps the story through the weakest points (the last third) and makes Tarzan's initial connection with all things human (including Jane) delicious entertainment. Disney still is not taking risks in its animated films, but as cookie-cutter entertainment, Tarzan makes a pretty good treat.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase

Tarzan flew onto blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. The transfer is fairly pristine, with bold splashes of colour, vivid primaries, inky black levels and carefully balanced contrast. Detail is pretty striking as well. There was concern about macroblocking, especially in gorilla’s fur on close-up. I would expect this defect would be magnified in my 12-foot wide screen. To my pleasant surprise, there was no macroblocking seen at all. Overall, the transfer is quite pleasing. (4/5)


For some unknown reasons, Tarzan only comes with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.0 track, not LFE track. I am slightly disappointed in this Disney’s decision. The sound is still very good, especially when the music of Phil Collins kicks in, as each musical instrument (particularly the drums) comes across as separate and distinct sounds. The fidelity and dynamic range of this track is simply wonderful. I was just wondering what if the LFE channel was added, the drum beat will be even more outstanding. You’ll Be In My Heart by Phil Collins won Best Oscar Original Song. Dialogue is very clear. The choice of voices for Kala (Glenn Close), Kerchak (Lance Henriksen), and Terk (Rosie O’Donnell) is simply outstanding. Kala’s voice at the mother is oh so very soothing. (4.5/5)


1 The signature "Tarzan yell" is provided by Brian Blessed, the voice of the film's villain Clayton.
2 Did you notice that when the gorillas pick up Professor Porter and turn him upside-down, a beanbag toy of Little Brother from Disney's Mulan (1998) falls out of his clothes?

Format: DVD
I suppose we are meant to wait for Disney to give this a decent two-disc treatment. Right now there are few extras on the dvd (though the languages are rather amazing).
The movie, the well-known tale from Edgar Rice Burroughs, is very well done, with terrific songs from Phil Collins, very nice voice work and delightful animation. There is some violence and four deaths, though they aren't bloody.
Extras include a trivia game, a storybook version of the film with optional read-along, a Collins music video and a behind-the-scenes studio session with Collins. The film can be heard in English, Cantonese or Mandarin; and subtitles are available in English, Mandalay, Bahasa, Thai or Korean!

We own a lot (a LOT) of Disney animated DVDs, and our kids watch them often. Some (like Pocahontas and Hunchback of Notre Dame) get viewed once and then shelved because the music's crummy, the story's slow or dumb, and the kids just don't want to see them again. Tarzan, though, gets viewed again and again. Thank goodness it's a great, watchable story. Lots of action, wonderful job by Minnie Driver voicing Jane, pretty good Phil Collins music, all combine to make this an enjoyable watch. I'd recommend it to anybody looking for a good gift for young kids.

This is a great movie but its the kind that you can get a little tired of after a while. I didn't really care for Minnie Driver's voice for Jane Porter; it didn't fit somehow. And while the music in Trashin' the camp was differant from the rest of the soundtrack,it was refreshing and I thought it fit perfectly with the destruction of the camp.
Phil Collins did a superb job with the music. I got goosebumps on several parts,he's that good. His singing voice just seems to fit with the wild jungle setting. All in all,a good movie.

By Wade A TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 16 2015
Format: Blu-ray
This movie is either really well loved, or goes under the radar for some people. I lump this in with Disney's "Middle" phase in my opinion, it's not the old classics like Jungle Book, Lion King, Little Mermaid, etc. All those. This one falls in with the middle movies like Hercules, Treasure Planet, Atlantis, Emporer's New Groove. The "Middle" phase gets it's quiet love from the people who were younger when it hit.

This movie to me is delightful, and it's a very touching tale about family and finding where you belong. It's very well done and the animation was amazing. Tarzan flying around the tree tops is still beautiful to watch now as it was when I was younger and was blown away by how crazy it looked. You toss in a wonderful Phil Collins soundtrack (some people don't like that it wasn't a Disney original soundtrack, but I don't mind one bit Collins nailed it). and the movie can downright give you goosebumps the second the music hits. Phil Collins and Tarzan were made for each other, who knew. Absolutely love this movie and glad I purchased this Middle Phase Film.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 13 2014
Format: Blu-ray
While not up to the level of sophistication of the best Pixar films, or even the very best of Disney, this has an admirable sense of humor, and an ability to be quite touching at times (if occasionally sappy). It also has some surprisingly dark and violent moments that might put it off limits to younger kids, who in other ways are its perfect audience.

This takes the basic Tarzan story and focuses mainly on Tarzan's need and ability to be accepted by the Gorilla clan he is adopted into, offering slightly obvious but always valuable lessons in accepting those who look or act different. It also has a spunky and even sexy Jane – an explorer who comes to Africa with her scientist father, and (of course) an evil guide looking to capture and enslave the apes. Jane's romance with Tarzan is funny, playful and sometimes moving.

The animation is energetic, kinetic and fun, Tarzan flying through the Jungle like a surfer of trees, and I found myself nicely
caught up in the story. Unlike some animated features, I actually wasn't sure exactly how things would work themselves out. I
also appreciated that Phil Collins' songs, which arguably tended to hit the nail a little too hard on the head, were few and far between. If they weren't great, they didn't really damage the film either.

It sounds like I'm damning this with faint praise, but the bottom line is I had a good time. I smiled, I chuckled, and I got choked up. When ANY film – animated or not - can do all three for me, I consider that a solid victory.
