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 first Disney animated feature film to majorly succeed since The Lion King (1994), which also takes place in Africa. See more »
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 directors 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 »
From 1989 to 1999, Walt Disney studios created some of the most amazing, mind-blowing animated movies of all time. From the little mermaid to beauty and the beast, from Aladdin to the lion king, from Pocahontas to Hercules, and finally, Mulan to Tarzan, these movies still hold their staying power to today. However, Tarzan was the last of these films, from the period known as the Disney Renaissance. Disney remains a popular animation studio in the public eye, but no one could deny how popular they were throughout the 1990s.
Tarzan itself is based upon the novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs and the movies from the 1930s. Tarzan is a baby who loses his parents, and is adopted by a family of gorillas, who raise him up as their own.
For a Disney film, this one is one of the best. For a renaissance film, It's not the best of them. I still like to say that the first 2 (The Little Mermaid & Beauty and the Beast) were the best. I know that some Disney fans would chew on me for not saying The Lion King, but that's just my personal preference.
I still think it's a great movie, worthy of being part of the collection of Disney's best.
