Storyline

Sheena's white parents are killed while on Safari. She is raised by the mystical witch woman of an African tribe. When her foster mother is framed for the murder of a political leader, Sheena and a newsman, Vic Casey are forced to flee while pursued by the mercenaries hired by the real killer, who hopes to assume power. Sheena's ability to talk to the animals and knowledge of jungle lore give them a chance against the high tech weapons of the mercenaries. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

Wild animals attempted to invade the set at different times and because of this armed guards were stationed on the set to protect the cast and crew. See more »

Goofs

During most of the movie, Sheena is barefoot. When she gets to the Zambuli after escaping from the crashing helicopter, she has sandals. She is wearing those sandals when she pursues Otwani while riding on her zebra. After Otwani makes her fall from the zebra, she is barefoot again - the sandals disappear forever. See more »

Quotes

Sheena: I am not a foolish young girl. The Shaman taught me that brave tales do not always have happy endings. I know what guns can do. I know that you and I may not live to see another sunset.
Vic Casey: Mmmmm!
Sheena: You are an enemy!
Vic Casey: I'm what?
Sheena: The Shaman taught me- an enemy is someone who takes without asking!
Vic Casey: I'll ask then. May I?
Sheena: Yes! You will be welcome in Zukuru! The head man's locust bean cakes- they will be your locust bean cakes! His fermented buffalo milk will be your fermented buffalo milk!

last surviving fairy tale
7 June 2001 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Tanya Roberts certainly got the best part of her career (alongside the Roger Moore Bond movie, of course) in "Sheena". It's hard to pretend so much innocence and naivete after a life spent in NY and Hollywood, of all places. That's acting... I'd like to point out many scenes with the animals, arranged better than in many Tarzan competitors, and I am not afraid to admit I still am fascinated by this fairy tale that was kindalike the last survivor in 1984 - before digital FX took control. Seen the OTT animal scenes in Jumanji? Maybe you feel the same then.
