    Synopsis:
    Wild with exotic adventure and laughs, Disney`s Tarzan is a magnificent adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs` classic story of the ape man!

    Raised by a family of gorillas, including the loving Kala and the wisecracking Terk, Tarzan develops all the instincts and prowess of a jungle animal. But with the sudden appearance of Tarzan`s own kind, including the beautiful Jane, two very different worlds are about to become one.

    Driven by five powerful songs from pop superstar Phil Collins, and starring the voice talents of Minnie Driver, Glenn Close and Rosie O`Donnell, Disney`s Tarzan delivers incredible adventure as well as important reminders about acceptance and family!

    9 / 10
    Tarzan, is one of Disney`s greatest films ever. The film has all aspects of a Disney classic- songs, stars and little characters that steal the show! In this case Terkina the gorilla and an elephant called Tantor! The story is well thought out, with plenty to entertain both grown ups and kids for hours. The animation is amazing, especially the scene where Tarzan is "surfing the trees".

    The disc itself unlike many Disney DVDs is impressive, it has chapter selection, sneak peak at Dinosaur and a read-a-long, as well as a second disc packed full of features, too many to list here!! I wonder if Disney will ever enhance all their DVDs, like Tarzan and Toy Story 2 disc sets etc!

    We shall only hope....
