Set back when Tarzan was just a boy, this is the story of Tarzan's journey to self-discovery. When Tarzan begins to see that he is not like the other gorillas, his mother Kala assures him that these slight differences only make him stronger. But when these differences put Kala in danger, he decides everyone would be better off without him and runs away. He then finds himself in a dark desolate land called Dark Mountain where he meets a new friend who helps him discover that even though he does not possess the talents of an ape, he has his own unique set of jungle skills that make him even more amazing than any other creature so that he can finally see who he truly is.

It's a prequel to Tarzan
17 March 2020 | by Min111See all my reviews

I'm shocked this movie has only a few number of reviews. I thought there'd be at least hundred or so reviews regardless whether the movie is good or poor. It's a Disney movie, and anything by Disney supposed to be popular. Tarzan 2 was a fine movie. It's actually a prequel to Tarzan, so it's not really a sequel. I think it's a great build-up for Tarzan, and that's why I liked it. I don't know what else the prequel could've done. I like Tarzan in this one. He's so cute and adorable. I was supporting him all the way on his adventure. People need to keep in mind that this is a prequel, not a sequel. Disney sequels or prequels are not as popular for some reason, but I would like for that to be one-day changed. Disney sequels/prequels are not as bad as you think. They are a little underrated if you ask me. I actually like them, and that includes Tarzan 2. They're different for sure, but that's only a good thing. If you haven't seen Tarzan, my advice is to see Tarzan 2 first, so that way, you get a better insight before you see Tarzan, but it doesn't matter really. I'm a fan of Disney sequels.
