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
A teapot and set of teacups in the explorers' camp bears a sharp resemblance to Mrs. Potts and her teacup children from Beauty and the Beast (1991). When Tantor sees them, he is scared that they may come to life. Terk responds "Pull yourself together. You're embarrassing me. These things aren't alive." In Beauty and the Beast (1991), of course, they are. See more »
Professor Porter and Jane offer to take Tarzan to England where he would meet Darwin, Queen Victoria, and Kipling. Charles Darwin died in 1882, the same year in which the yet-to-be-published 17-year old Rudyard Kipling finished college and returned to India. See more »
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.
