Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
The movie is about the life of Tarzan. Tarzan was a small orphan who was raised by an ape named Kala since he was a child. He believed that this was his family, but on an expedition Jane Porter is rescued by Tarzan. He then finds out that he's human. Now Tarzan must make the decision as to which family he should belong to... Written by
When one of the gorillas takes Clayton's gun to examine it, he holds it up and stares down the barrel, in exactly the same pose as one of the apes at Disneyland's "Jungle Cruise" attraction. See more »
Tarzan takes place in Africa, but Sabor is clearly a jaguar, a big cat found only in South and Central America. Most likely the makers of the movie intended to portray a leopard. Jaguars, however, have larger rosettes which contain smaller black spots whereas leopards are marked by smaller, empty rosettes. The two animals can also be distinguished by the way they are built, with the jaguar being a heavier built cat with a broader head and shorter tail than the leopard. See more »
[after being rescued back to camp by Tarzan]
Oh, my goodness! Daddy, I was walking. There was... was a little baby, little baby monkey, and I drew a picture!
Yes, go on.
Suddenly, the monkey starts crying.
Oh, poor thing.
But, I turn around and there's a whole FLEET OF THEM. An ARMY of monkeys! A huge tree full of monkeys, screaming at me!

She's very good at this!
Terrified! I was terrified! Suddenly, I was swinging, on a vine, in the air! ...

The true measure of a family film is to watch a child's reaction. My (normally jumpy) three-year-old sat with enraptured glee through this movie and was able to articulate the plot back to me with amazing detail. That's not a parent's rambling, its a credit to a brilliant movie. Tarzan ranks just below Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid in the list of the best of Disney's new films.
Disney formula (rogue orphan, evil villain pretending to be a friend, whacky sidekick, neurotic friend and lots a snappy tunes) has never been more apparent, but it works perfectly. But the real joy of this movie is its breathtaking beauty and the message of living without prejudice.
Don't expect anything new from Disney, and do not expect a detailed retelling of the original novel. But do expect to see their product refined even further and at its best since Beauty and the Beast. This is a kid's movie, but any grown-up can like it. Minnie Driver and Wayne Knight provide the best voice overs.
As my six-year-old daughter told me once, "I like movies with scary beginnings, silly middles and happy endings." Needless to say, she loved Tarzan. **** out of ****.
