Trivia

This is not Glenn Close's first involvement in a Tarzan movie - she dubbed the voice of Andie MacDowell in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984). See more »

Goofs

During the fight scene in which Tarzan kills Sabor, Sabor scratches Tarzan's chest. The scars are there momentarily and in the next camera shot are gone, then reappear, then disappear. The director's realized the scars would become cumbersome and therefore decided that Tarzan would heal miraculously fast. Humorously, Disney was later contacted regarding the production of a "fast-healing Tarzan action figure" due to this scene. See more »

Animated Tarzan A Pleasant Surprise
22 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this surprisingly good because not only was animation well done

  • which they all seem to be in the past decade - but an involving,
action-packed story that was interesting start-to-finish. The action is not overdone, however. The color in here is magnificent and it looks spectacular on DVD.

The film turned out to be a good combination of drama, action, comedy and romance. I would think this would be a little too frightening, however, for little kids, for those wondering about that. The only negative I had was listening to the grating voice of Rose O'Donnell. That, and her New York City, accent, is definitely not appealing. Otherwise, I have nothing but good things to say about this film.
