This spin-off to Disney's Hercules follows Herc's many labors during the years he spent training how to be a hero under the tutelage of satyr Philoctetes. Olympian Gods and Goddesses as well as Hades and Pegasus often visit him.
Picking up where the film left off, Tarzan is reunited with his animal family while assuming greater responsibilities as the successor to Kerchak. Tarzan, now king of the beasts, must protect the wildlife and the jungle itself. Tarzan also continues to learn about humans through the teachings of Jane. Written by
The only thing I can find wrong with Disney's Legend of Tarzan is it's not long enough. Only one season! Come on, give us more! This series picks up right where the movie left off and shows Jane adjusting to life as Tarzan's mate and the gorillas adjusting to having a human for a leader. Turk isn't too warm to Jane just at first because Jane can't keep up with the gorillas and takes up almost all of Tarzan's attention. Tantor meanwhile loves to partner up with Jane's father Archimedese Q. Porter (Archie) and assist him in his scientific experiments.
Many cool characters are introduced including the slimy trading post operator, Renard Dumont, who's always flirting with Jane and ticking Tarzan off, Queen La who turns Dumont into an animal (I forget what kind), the leopard men and my favorite, the dinosaurs of Palusidar (sp?).
I love how the characters interact with each other. The relationships are pretty much the same as they were in the movie, except that you see how the characters grow closers to each other as they come to know and love one another.
As was said, the only way this could've been better is if there's been more episodes.
