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
The movie is set in eastern Africa. This can be seen on a drawing of Tarzan that Jane is working on during the "Strangers Like Me" sequence. It can be seen labeled in the corner. Earlier in the movie, Professor Porter mentions moving westward, deeper into the jungle, which would make the ocean on the eastern coast. It is possible that the movie might be set in Kenya, which was at the time as a protectorate of Britain located on the eastern coast of Africa. Kenya also has thick jungles on it's coasts - much like the ones seen in the film. 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.
