Now Tarzan must make the decision as to which family he should belong to...Written by
Professor Porter mentions "Kipling", as in Rudyard Kipling, who is known for writing "The Jungle Book", which was adapted into a few animated Disney movies. See more »
When we first see Clayton, he's slashing down bamboo stalks with his machete and there's a large nick in the blade, close to the handle. As soon as he places the machete in his belt, the nick in the blade is missing for the rest of this scene. See more »

To secure a rating "ohne Altersbeschraenkung" (without age restriction) in Germany a couple of scenes were altered:
A scene where Sabor was off killing Kala's offspring was shortened
From its dramatic opening sequence, to its jubilant, high-five finale, Disney's "Tarzan" is, without question, a very entertaining re-telling of Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic tale of a helpless, human baby reared to adulthood, in the jungle, by a band of gorillas.
Featuring some excellent action sequences (mixed generously with moments of slapstick comedy and the excitement of adventure), 1999's "Tarzan" certainly turned out to be a mighty fine example of first-rate story-telling that actually tugged on this viewer's heartstrings, occasionally.
In this animated feature film, the lean and athletic Tarzan (as the story's hero) comes across as being a truly likable and endearing character.
Punctuated by songs (which seemed a bit out of place) from pop star, Phil Collins, "Tarzan" is still a delightful movie-experience that can definitely be enjoyed by all ages, young and old.
