Disney’s magnificent animated adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough’s story of the ape man begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan is adopted by a family of gorillas.

Together with his wisecracking ape buddy Terk and neurotic elephant pal Tantor, Tarzan learns how to “surf” and swing through the trees and survive in the animal kingdom. His two worlds collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a “civilized” life with the beautiful Jane and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family. Filled with humor, heart, and hilarious fun, Tarzan is an unforgettable adventure you’ll watch again and again.
