Plot summary

In the late 1880's off the coast of Africa, a young couple and their infant son escape a burning ship and land on the unexplored rainforests of Africa, where they build themselves a treehouse in which to live ("Two Worlds"). Meanwhile, a gorilla couple named Kerchak and Kala are traveling with the rest of their group when their infant son is eaten by a leopard named Sabor. Later that night, Kala stumbles upon the treehouse, which has been attacked by Sabor, and although the infant has survived, both his parents are dead. Kala returns the baby to the rest of the group, but Kerchak despises the boy for his appearance. Nevertheless, Kala decides to raise the boy as her own, naming him Tarzan ("You'll Be in My Heart"). A world map showing the continent of Africa Africa is the worlds second-largest and second most-populous continent, after Asia. ... Treehouse TV is a Canadian preschool television station. ... Type species Troglodytes gorilla Savage, 1847 distribution of Gorilla Species Gorilla gorilla Gorilla beringei The gorilla, the largest of the living primates, is a ground-dwelling omnivore that inhabits the forests of Africa. ...

Kala is a fictional ape character in Edgar Rice Burroughss original Tarzan novel, Tarzan of the Apes, and in the Walt Disney-produced animated movie Tarzan based on it. ... For other uses, see Leopard (disambiguation). ... Sabor is a generic name for lionesses in Mangani, the fictional language of the great apes in the Tarzan novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. ...


A few years later, Tarzan makes friends with young gorilla Terk and an elephant named Tantor ("Son of Man"). Despite his inablity to compete with the rest of the gorillas, Tarzan perseveres and eventually grows into a strong, capable and gorilla-like man. When Sabor attacks the group again, Tarzan successfully kills her, earning Kerchak's respect. Tarzan then notices another group of humans arriving: Professor Porter and his daughter Jane, who have travelled to Africa in search of gorillas, along with their hunter guide Clayton. Jane then has an encounter with angry baboons who attack her by taking her boot. Tarzan heroically saves her then tickles and plays with her feet. Jane then goes back to camp. Terk is an animated female gorilla, a character in the cartoon Disney version of Tarzan and the animated TV series The Legend of Tarzan. ...

Pierce and Joan Burroughs Pierce; they starred in the 1932-34 Tarzan radio series Jane Porter is a major character in Edgar Rice Burroughss series of Tarzan novels. ... Clayton is the hunter and villain from the Disney film Tarzan. ...


Meanwhile, Tarzan's friends arrive at the trio's campsite and proceed to destroy it ("Trashin' the Camp"). Tarzan returns Jane to camp and departs with the animals before Professor Porter and Clayton arrive. In the jungle, Kerchak instructs the others to stay away from the campsite, but Tarzan protests, believing that the humans pose no threat. Tarzan secretly returns to the campsite and is introduced to the other men, and the three of them teach Tarzan about the human world ("Strangers Like Me"); nevertheless, he refuses to tell them the gorillas' location, fearing Kerchak's fury. A few days later, when the boat to England arrives, the trio, unable to find the gorillas, prepares to leave, and Tarzan is heartbroken to see Jane depart. Clayton explains, however, that they will stay once they find the gorillas. Tarzan then wants Terk to do him a favor. He wants Terk to get Kerchak out of the way. Terk, at first, refuses to help him because he thought that Tarzan didnt care about Terk anymore. Now he cared more about Jane. Finally, Terk agrees because Tarzan gave him a look that makes Terk say yes. Terk then becomes Furious because he told Tarzan that he better not make him do anything embarrassing, but Terk is disguised as Jane (with the skirt and lipstick) and Tantor is disguised as the professor.


Tarzan leads them to the nesting site, but Kerchak appears and attacks Clayton, much to the humans' fright. Tarzan puts Kerchak in a headlock, allowing the humans to escape, and as such alienates himself from the gorillas. Sympathetic, Kala takes Tarzan to his biological parents' treehouse, and he decides that he belongs in the human world. Tarzan decides to depart for England with the others, but Clayton and the crew attack them and lock them up; Clayton reveals that he wanted to find the apes to kill and sell them on the black market. As the crew storm the jungle, Tantor and Terk rescue Tarzan and they go off to stop Clayton, who mortally wounds Kerchak with his rifle. Tarzan and Clayton duel among the treetops until Clayton, entangled in vines, falls from the tree, resulting in an accidental death by hanging. Tarzan then finds the ailing Kerchak, who apologizes to Tarzan for his behavior and makes him, as the uncontestedly most capable of the younger generation, leader of the gorillas. At that rate, Kerchak dies, and Tarzan and the gorillas mourn for his demise. Alpha male redirects here. ...


With the crew captured, Jane and Professor Porter prepare to depart for England. However, realizing where her heart belongs, Jane returns to the jungle and is soon followed by her father; the three of them reside happily in the jungle among the animals and gorillas ("Two Worlds Reprise").


Major changes from book to movie

  • Tarzan's parents, marooned in the novel, are shipwrecked in the movie.

  • In the book, Tarzan's human mother dies of natural causes while his father is killed shortly afterward by Kerchak; baby Tarzan is saved from Kerchak when Kala seizes the infant and flees. In the film, a leopard named Sabor is responsible for the deaths of both of Tarzan's human parents, and Kala exhibits amazing heroism to save baby Tarzan from the predator.
  • In the book Tarzan kills Kerchak in a battle for supremacy over the apes. In the movie Kerchak is shot by Clayton.
  • A male Great Ape named Terkoz, Tarzan's enemy in the book, becomes Terk (or Terkina as called by her mother), a female gorilla, Tarzan's best friend, in the movie.

Deep Canvas

To create the sweeping 3D backgrounds, Tarzan's production team developed a 3D painting and rendering technique known as Deep Canvas. This technique allows artists to produce CGI background that looks like a traditional painting. For this advancement, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded the creators of Deep Canvas a Technical Achievement Award in 2003.

Expanded to support moving objects as part of the background, Deep Canvas was utilized to create about 75% of the environments in Disney's next major animated action film, Treasure Planet, though the results were less stunning, due to the film's tighter painting style which could have been accomplished without such advanced software. Deep Canvas was designed to accomplish a very loose, brushstroke-based style without hard edges, but Treasure Planet's backgrounds were more hard-edged and clean. Treasure Planet is a 2002 Academy Award nominated science fiction animated feature film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation, and released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 27, 2002. ...

Controversy

One of the controversial Israeli posters.

Like many past Disney productions, Tarzan did not go without its share of complaints and criticisms. Image File history File links 420300_tarzan150. ... Image File history File links 420300_tarzan150. ...


Upon the film's release in Israel during August of 1999, several complaints arose from the orthodox Jewish community over Tarzan's lack of clothing which was displayed in advertising posters that had circulated for the film. Many members of the community, mostly rabbis and other prominent religious members, called for the removal of the posters. Disney however rejected the requests for the removal of the ads, calling the controversy "ridiculous". Rabbi Avraham Ravitz, for example, was quoted as stating that such images "did not promote a suitable way of living", in accordance to the Jewish religion's code of dressing from head to toe. Disney argued back that the film promoted family values through the caring of a loving mother for a boy who was lost in a jungle. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Trivia

  • Tarzan is the only animated Disney film which had been dubbed into Bahasa Melayu.
  • The teapot and cup that are seen in the scene where Terk and the other animals mess up the camp are of the same design as Mrs. Potts the teapot and her son, Chip the teacup, from Beauty and the Beast.
  • One of the toys that falls out from Professor Porter's pockets when he is turned upside down by an ape is Little Brother, the dog from Mulan.
  • The treehouse in Disneyland's Adventureland, was renamed Tarzan's Treehouse in 1999 (it originally was the Swiss Family Treehouse).
  • Tarzan's home, Deep Jungle, is also a playable world in the Disney/Square Enix video game Kingdom Hearts. Sora, Donald Duck, and Goofy had to work with Tarzan to save his world from the Heartless and Clayton. It didn't re-appear for Chain of Memories or Kingdom Hearts II. It also did not appear in the manga adaptation. Though the Professor and Tantor do not make cameo appearances.
  • Minnie Driver largely ad-libbed the breathless speech in which Jane tells her father and Clayton about meeting Tarzan for the first time.
  • William Cecil Clayton, the character in the book on whom the film's Clayton is (loosely) based, is Tarzan's cousin; Tarzan's birth name is John Clayton, Earl of Greystoke.*
  • All of the actors who voiced gorillas also provided their character's own "gorilla" vocal effects.
  • Although the film features many songs, almost none of them are sung by the main cast-instead they are all sung by Phil Collins over various montage sequences. The sole exceptions are Kala's initial lullaby to Tarzan, which starts out in the voice of Glenn Close before shifting to that of Collins, and "Trashin' the Camp," which features scat-like lyrics voiced by Rosie O'Donnell. This unique approach would later be used in Brother Bear (which also featured songs by Collins.)
  • "Trashin' the Camp," in which the gorillas play music using various human objects the find in camp, is the closest the film comes to a true musical number.
  • Tarzan features the highest number of deaths in any animated film produced by Disney. The killed characters were Kerchak, his and Kala's child, Tarzan's parents, Sabor and Clayton. Other Disney animated films, notably Mulan, arguably have higher "body counts," but of mostly minor or walk-on characters, and at a greater remove from the action. Treasure Planet features deaths of five secondary characters and one major.
  • During Walt Disney's lifetime, Edgar Rice Burroughs actually asked Disney to make a movie based on Tarzan. This is the realization of Burroughs' request.
  • Takeshi Kaneshiro, Charlie Yeung and Sandra Ng provided the voices of Tarzan, Jane and Terk respectively in the film's Cantonese dub.
  • In one scene Tarzan fights a leopard and gets scratched on his chest. In the next scene after he kills it the scratch marks are missing, this is because animating the scar throughout the movie would prove too expensive.
  • In the scene after he kills the leopard, Tarzan presents it to Kerchak as a tribute. In the next scene, the leopard is no longer there. Similarly, upon Kerchak's death, he disappears in the next scene, as Tarzan leads the gorillas away from the clearing.
  • In the scene where the apes discover the camp, Tantor panics at the sight of all the human objects and cries out "The horror!", a famous line from the novel Heart of Darkness, which is set in Africa.
