After viewing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote to Walt Disney about adapting his novel of an ape-man into a feature animated cartoon. Sixtysome years later, the tale is finally told with brilliant design work that looks unlike any previous animated film. The story is a natural for Disney since the themes of misunderstood central figures have been at the heart of its recent hits. Disney's Tarzan doesn't wander far from the familiar story of a shipwrecked baby who is brought up by apes in Africa. What gives the film its zing is its clever use of music (the songs are sung by Phil Collins himself rather than onscreen characters) and the remarkable animation. Deep Canvas, a 3-D technology, was developed for the film, creating a jungle that comes alive as Tarzan swings through the trees, often looking like a modern skateboarder racing down giant tree limbs. The usual foray of sidekicks, including a rambunctious ape voiced by Rosie O'Donnell, should keep the little ones aptly entertained. The two lead voices, Tony Goldwyn as Tarzan and Minnie Driver as Jane, are inspired choices. Their chemistry helps the story through the weakest points (the last third) and makes Tarzan's initial connection with all things human (including Jane) delicious entertainment. Disney still is not taking risks in its animated films, but as cookie-cutter entertainment, Tarzan makes a pretty good treat. (Ages 5 and up) --Doug Thomas

Some facts about this movie are quite interesting. This is the 48th Tarzan movie and the only one word Tarzan movie. This was the first Disney movie to open at #1 since Pocahontas did it in 1995. Also this was the last movie of Disney's Renaissance era. The movie won an Academy and Golden Globe Award in the category of Best Music, Original Song for the song You'll Be In My Heart by Phil Collins. It also won a Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album. In the end Tarzan gets an AAAAA+++++.

First the sound and the picture are simply 10 out of 10 this should be a diamond edition with how wonderful the picture and sound are. ( many have complained about digi blocking and I have to say I have not seen this , I have a 47 in vizio television and I have to say the picture was phenomenal and flawless, those worried about the digi effect I can confirm that it is not happening on my copy or on my television set.)
The story is still just as amazing as you remember but with better picture and sound.
I give the movie and the picture and sound 5 stars
However in an age where we have bluray which can hold the info of 10 dvds it is sad to say that Disney did not utilize this to add on any bonus features other than a deleted alternate opening which can be found on the Ultimate Collectors Edition DVD which was released in 2000. It was loaded with deleted scenes, promotional material, audio commentary , deleted songs and demos from Phil Collins. This would have been a fantastic edition if only the people producing this item would have given some thought into making this a superb copy.
I give the bonus feature department a sold 2 stars as the bonus features are not many and could be improved on greatly.
Over all I give this title 5 stars because if you don't care about bonus features and just want to see the film in the best possible picture and hear crisp clear sound than you should not deny yourself this chance to own a wonderful piece of Disney animation.
