Apparently this movie is three episodes from already existing TV series 'The Legend of Tarzan' stitched together with new animation to make the narrative seem more.. seamless, and I gotta say this right off the bat, This movie has some of the worst looking animation Disney has ever produced.. EVER, I'm not even kidding, I'm talking about the new animation that was made specifically for this straight-to-DVD Tarzan sequel and yeah, It looks hideous, Like some cheap Brazilian knock off movie trying to imitate Disney's Tarzan so some poor Grandma buys it instead of Disney's original for her grandchildren (No disrespect to Brazil, I'm just saying that the animation literally looks like something outta Vídeo Brinquedo) Thankfully the three episodes/segments has pretty decent animation, Not something mind blowing, Just good enough for a Saturday morning cartoon.
The storyline is just ok, It follows Jane, Trying to think of something special to do with her 1 year anniversary with Tarzan, So Trek and Tantor try to help her with some ideas, The three stories are fine too, My favorite being the second one with Jane and her friends visiting her from London, It has a lot of funny bits and cute interactions but other than that it was pretty forgettable, Especially the other two stories.
The new song by Phil Collins and Mandy Moore were pretty cute, but nothing really special to write home about..
None of the voice cast of the original movie reprised their roles in this movie nor the TV series and It is pretty noticeable, I'm not talking about the side characters (Jim Cummings, April Winchell and Jeff Bennett did a phenomenal job with how little screen time their characters were given) I'm talking about our main characters, Jane and her super exaggerated British accent and Tarzan with his boring monotone voice, I'm not saying they did a bad job, It just lacks the heart and charisma the original cast had..
So yeah, This was pretty lame, If you're interested in more Tarzan adventures, Just go watch the TV series and don't watch whatever this is.. This is not the worst straight-to-DVD Disney sequel (I mean The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2 still exists) but still I can't give this movie more than three stars, Just a very lazy lame movie.
