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
This film contains numerous references to the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan films (Tarzan the Ape Man (1932), et seq). These include a "Me Tarzan, You Jane" introduction scene, Tarzan wrestling with crocodiles, and Jane's costume at the end of the film resembles the clothing worn by Maureen O'Sullivan in the Weissmuller series.

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 »

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.
