Trio of Disney animated features based on the characters created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in his classic novel 'Tarzan of the Apes'.
In 'Tarzan' (1999), Tarzan (voiced by Tony Goldwyn) is a human who was taken in and raised by gorilla Kala (Glenn Close) when his parents were killed by Sabor the leopard.
Now a grown male, Tarzan has never been fully accepted by Kala's husband Kerchak (Lance Henriksen), the head of the tribe, but has female gorilla Terk and elephant Trantor for friends.
When explorer Professor Porter (Nigel Hawthorne) arrives in the jungle with his daughter Jane (Minnie Driver) and adventurer Clayton (Brian Blessed), Tarzan discovers his human heritage for the first time, gradually learning how to speak and spending time at the visitors' encampment.
However, although Porter merely wishes to study the gorillas, Clayton secretly plans to capture them and take them back to England, and tries to trick Tarzan into leading him to the tribe. 'Tarzan 2' (2005) is a prequel to the first film. Before he was King of the Jungle, Tarzan (Harrison Chad) was an awkward young kid just trying to fit in.
When one of his missteps puts his family in jeopardy, Tarzan decides they would be better off with out him.
His new journey brings him face to face with the mysterious Zugor (George Carlin), the most powerful force in the land.
Together, Tarzan and Zugor discover that being different is not a weakness and that friends and family are the greatest strength of all.
In 'Tarzan and Jane' (2002), it is a year since Tarzan (Michael T.
Weiss) and Jane (Olivia d'Abo) started living together in the jungle, and Jane is looking for a special anniversary present for Tarzan.
As she searches from place to place, she recalls the many exciting events of the past year, including the times they outwitted a panther and escaped an erupting volcano...
