(9-Great Film)

Exciting. Bold. Spectacular.

Orphaned as a baby and left alone in the jungles of 19th century Africa, Tarzan is adopted and raised by gorillas, the loving and kind, Kala (Close), and the disapproving Kerchak (Henriksen). Years later, as an adult, Tarzan (Goldwyn), who’d grown up believing himself to be an ape, but always felt like he was different, discovers who and what he really is once he meets explorers Clayton (Blessed), Professor Porter (Hawthorne), and the Professor’s daughter, Jane (Driver), with whom he quickly falls in love. Innovative animation teamed with a classic adventure romance, Tarzan represents the last of an era, a special time in Disney animation, known as their renaissance. Phil Collins’ new age songs amazingly work perfectly with this story of a boy raised by gorillas in Africa.
