Product Description


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. (Ages 5 and up) --Doug Thomas

Tarzan is another along with Hercules of the older, late 90's Disney flicks to finally make it to Blu-ray and I couldn't be happier. Unlike Hercules which is strictly a goofball comedy along the likes of Aladdin; Tarzan is a much more serious (though still lots of fun) look at what happens when a man is forced to look seriously inside himself and realize that he may be more than just an Ape. That is the essence of this animated movie.

So it starts out with his parents being lost at sea, their struggle to build a new life in the jungle and finally being adopted by the Apes. And happily enjoying his life until Jane, her eccentric father and their hired guide stumble upon this idyllic existence. It's a clash of two cultures and has never been done better. It's serious and dramatic when it needs to be, screwball comedy when it needs to lighten the mood but always remains a family movie with a true heart whether that family be human or gorilla. In overall quality of storyline, I'd put it right up there with Beauty & The Beast, Mulan or The Lion King.

Animation is top notch as well for an older movie and it's original 1.66:1 aspect ratio has a full anamorphic 16x9 presentation. It also has a good modern 5.1 surround track and some outstanding songs by Phil Collins. Plus great dubbing especially of Jane which with her English accent; is dead on!

Overall, Tarzan is the last of the better Disney animated movies to get a true proper bluray release and I highly recommend it for those who never got a chance to see it the first time around. Definitely 4 to 4-1/2 stars out of 5!

4.0 out of 5 stars *****Wow!****** July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good movie, great music, lame dvd treatment March 9 2004
By audrey
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun - Kids and Adults Will Both Enjoy This Nov. 21 2003
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie! Feb. 13 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a really great movie that doesn't seem to have blown up like many lesser movies have. Phil Colins did a wonderful job with the songs and the storyline is endearing. As a Mom I love this movie for my girls but I also would have this movie even if I didn't have children.

I think that movie is a terrific one. If Disney can come up with female version of Tarzan named "Tarzana" sounds like a terrific idea. Read more
